The Solidarity Quilts of the Chattahoochee Evening Stars Quilt Guildsarah
Once again, the project “Solidarity Blocks”, launched last April, showed how generous the quilting community is! Our artists created 80 blocks, which they shared with you to allow you, and your needle, to participate to this adventure. Over 800 blocks were sent! Some of you replicated our designers’ patterns while others gave free rein to their imagination. But it is not the end…
What about the Solidarity Blocks in the United States?
In order to make the small quilts intended for the hospitals that were the most-affected by the pandemic, we entrusted the blocks to the Chattahoochee Evening Stars Quilt Guild in Georgia.
Eight members of the guild volunteered:
- Vicki Evaristo
- Ben and Kathleen Hollingsworth
- Korri Iracondo
- Laura Kimball
- Leigh Ann Kloefkorn
- Barbara Means
- Debbie Scarimbolo
They did an amazing work and had the kindness to send us some superb pictures! We would love to thank them wholeheartedly and to share with you the result of their work.
A huge thanks to our dear partners for making this project possible. The Art Gallery Fabrics supplied the backing fabrics, Hobbs the batting and Wonderfil the thread, all the necessary elements to accompany your blocks. The quilts are now ready to distribute beautiful smiles!
