The Middle East Peace Quilt is an international community project initiated by artist and activist Sima Elizabeth Shefrin who asked participants to make quilt squares expressing their vision of peace in the Middle East.

The quilt was created from over 200 9-inch squares by people from all over North America, England, Germany, and Greece, including people from both Palestinian and Israeli backgrounds.
