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.
We also would like to THANK to our generous partners for their constant support! We are honored to partner with such exceptional people!
|Walter and Patricia Bravo,founders of Art Gallery Fabrics for the back fabrics of the quilts||Stephanie of Hobbs for the batting to be used for the solidarity block quilts!||Andrew and Calista of Wonderfil who have generously donated the threads to be used for the solidarity block quilts.|
About the blocks:
- The block measures 25 cm (10 inches), seam allowance NOT included.
- The color palette of the fabrics should range from pink to red.
- The participant may create any block that he/she likes. The blocks presented on our blog are simply examples that may be reproduced but are not a requirement.
- The participant may sign their blockusing their preferred method: front, back, embroidered, tagged, signed by hand… or any other way they see fit. We would just like for the project to be as personal as possible.
