Panels Completed: 90/225

Panels Pledged: 135/225  (If you want to become a panelist, email mary@maryvaneecke.com to request your pattern). Here is how the image would look if we installed it today:

This image shows the installation as of 7/14/20. Do you see your panel? Do you see the place where your panel should be? We need YOU to complete the image. See below for links to larger images of each panel.

There are still approximately 1,000 pairs of booties that will be stitched into panels.  Stay tuned for more updates!

Last, but not least, I am submitting the image below to various art venues for exhibition.  I call it The Mourning Project:  One Day.

The Mourning Project: One Day, with 63 pairs of handmade baby booties–one for each child lost before her first birthday every day in the US.
