midday N_o_o_n Q_u_i_l_t is an assemblage of patches submitted by writers from around the world. Together they form a fabric of noon-time impressions. The quilts were stitched over a period of approximately five months during 1998-1999.
The Noon Quilt Book is available to buy from trAce.

The Noon Quilt is now closed to submissions. It will remain on display here at trAce, as an archive attesting to a certain time, and a thinking within that time. Scroll to the bottom of this page for a link to the map that indicates the locations of the writers. The map is not complete...

What you need to view Noon Quilt.

Noon Quilt has been designed for Netscape Communicator/Navigator 4 and Internet Explorer 4 with javascript enabled. The quilt is best viewed on a 800x600 screen with 32 bit color without the browser toolbar.
When you move the mouse over a patch the writer's name will appear in the status bar. Select the patch and a smaller window will open with that writer's noon-time writing. From this window you can navigate the site via the stitches. Once again, pass the mouse over a stitch and the path name will appear in the status bar. It is important to refresh/reload the noon quilt page to see the most current patches. Please enjoy!
