During these difficult times, health care providers around the world are risking their lives, and the lives of their loved ones, working over-time in this battle against the coronavirus.
We have wanted to mobilize the international quilting community to participate in a solidarity project as a token of thanks for their hard work and dedication.
80 quilt designers have created blocks and over 1,000 others from around the globe have already signed up! A huge thank to everyone who has already participated in this operation !
The reception of the blocks has ended on September 30th, 2020. They are being pieced and assembled into quilts before being donated to a number of hospitals in various countries.
A huge THANK to our generous partners for their constant support!
We are honored to partner with such exceptional people!
About the blocks:
- Fabricate a block measuring 25 cm (10 inches), seam allowance NOT included.
- The color palette of the fabrics should range from pink to red.
- You may create any block that you like. The blocks presented on our blog are simply examples that you may reproduce, if you like, but this is not a requirement.
- Sign your block using your preferred method: you are free to sign your block as you like. Front, back, embroidered, tagged, signed by hand… or any other way you see fit. We would just like for the project to be as personal as possible.
