I have joined some on-line quilters to make some Quilt Blocks to Heal Violence. This project has been organised by @Jackie Gillies as a way for quilters to show in a practical manner, that we care.
The block is called Tictactoe and the details of the block construction can be found at Blossom Heart Quilts – thanks Alyce.
Basically, Jackie has asked for low volume backgrounds with a bright cross.
This is the first one I tried:
It is an easy block to construct and comes together in no time at all!
I love the ‘strength’ portrayed in this block – one of the girls described it as a Stop sign – STOP the violence and a Kiss – A KISS to show we care and I love that idea.
This is my second block
I love the way the quilting community pulls together – I held a Friday night, on-line sew- in to make these and my local quilting group, the Plateau Quilters were keen to lend their support as well.
I think Jackie will be blown away by the support that will come from all over, and I am really glad to see that there is a willing group of helpers to take these blocks and transform them into quilts of love, warmth and comfort!
If you want to be involved , it’s not too late and even if you don’t have the time to sew, donations of wadding, backing and postage costs would be gratefully accepted – just follow this link or contact me.
Until next time
