Create a New Quilt Square

The Digital Memory Quilt is an online space where suicide loss survivors everywhere can honor and share stories about their loved ones — stories that serve as squares in our virtual quilt.

When writing about your loved one, consider sharing stories about a special time you had with them; talk about their personality, their interests. In addition, be sure to follow these guidelines:

  • Avoid mentioning your loved one’s method of death.
  • Avoid referring to any medications they may have taken by name.
  • Use discretion if you choose to disclose any mental health struggles you may have experienced in the wake of your loss.

Please note that your square will not appear immediately as it must be reviewed by our staff prior to posting. Please also bear in mind that we reserve the right to edit any content that may be upsetting to visitors of this website. Thank you for your cooperation.

We will not share or sell your email address to other organizations. We hate spam as much as you do. We will use your email address to identify you should you request changes to your square later on.

Please select the state where you live. If you live outside of the U.S., select 'Outside the U.S.' at the bottom of the list of choices. This information will be used to help our chapters display quilt squares from their area. We will not share your information with any 3rd party.

Please note, images do not need to be square when uploading. They will appear as squares when they are part of the quilt and as full images when clicked on.
