Paintbox Condos Quilt Unveiling Another Step Towards Regent Park Revitalization

Many gathered at Paintbox Condos last week to witness the unveiling of a "fabric narrative" quilt in its new home at the lobby of the condo.

The quilt, completed by four exceptional women from the Regent Park Women and Families Quilting Group, took approximately 870 hours and more than 10 months to complete, measuring 90” wide and 77”  high.

It was designed to capture the essence of Regent Park's rich past and shining future, and tells a revitalization story through a love poem.

This celebration marks another step in the revitalization of Regent Park, as the City of Toronto and The Daniels Corporation rebuilds the neighbourhood for 12,500 residents over 15 years.
