in Community + Creativity, Quilting

A while ago Kirsty from Kootoyoo put a call out on her blog for participants in a redwork quilt project. I signed up and went about designing and finishing my square. At the time I didn’t give a lot of thought to the other participants, if I’m honest. But then I saw the finished piece and the website that Kirsty had put together and I was blown away. It’s a stunning collaboration and I wish I could have been there in person to see it. Congrats to Kirsty and the other participants. Link to The Quilt Project.

From The Quilt Project blog:

An online community friendship quilt made up of 66 squares.

A modern twist on traditional redwork – participants were asked to “work a square in red”.

After hours of handwork by each of the participants the squares were posted to Melbourne where they were photographed & assembled into a temporary quilt.

Displayed for one night the quilt squares will now be returned to their creators or swapped.

The Quilt Project is a permanent record for everyone to enjoy.
