Six months since the Women's March and six months since we participated and witnessed possibly the largest display of craftivism in action. Every time we see this image we are reminded of the power of us as individuals and as a greater community. #pussyhat #pussyhatglobal #pussyhatproject #welcomeblanket #craftivism #knitting #crochet #6monthssincewomensmarch

A group of Texas Latina teens held a quinceañera-themed protest on the south steps of the Capitol on July 19, 2017, to voice their opposition to the so-called sanctuary cities law, also known as Senate Bill 4. The protest was held on the second day of the 85th Legislature's special session. Photo by @tamirhasacellphone TAMIR KALIFA/ AMERICAN-STATESMAN

🖤 Some blankets are bright and colorful while others are more minimal in color choice. We love them all! 🖤 Thanks to @treesinit for this contribution. . . .

We love seeing the diversity of designs. This one is inspired by Scandinavian heritage and it's a creative beauty. #welcomeblanket #welcomenotwalls #creative #immigrantswelcome #refugeeswelcome #immigrantsmakeamericagreat #Repost @treesinit

Finished my welcome blanket! I used Scandinavian motifs to reflect the heritage of many families who settled in Minnesota, including my husband's family from Sweden.

As a reminder, blankets don't need to be made using only our suggested pattern. We will happily accept blankets of different looks! @fireflyfiberarts made this super pretty square! Also, if you are in Chicago and cannot commit to making an entire blanket yourself, Firefly Fiber Arts is accepting contributions of 10x10 squares.

Nanette in New York shared with us her design for the quilt she is making for #welcomeblanket. Her representation of the idea of home is so beautiful and we can't wait to see the finished product! ・・・ #welcomeblanket #handmadechange #quilting #craftivism #refugeeswelcome

@mjkwiatek took inspiration from the Statue of Liberty in choosing the colors of her blanket! ・・・
