Dear Sweet “SEW•N•LOVE” Friends,

 

Thank you for joining me on this quilting adventure. This is an opportunity to share our love of tangling and doodle art. The response has been wonderful. Support and love pouring in from all over the world! I am building a quilt to celebrate diversity, peace, and love. Thank you for contributing to this exciting project!

 

“We Americans have adopted quilts as a symbol of what we value about ourselves and our national history.” Laurel Horton

 

The creation of this quilt will be made of our individual squares, sewn together with love and pride. Each artist will be featured and recognized on an international level. Quilts become part of history. They touch hearts, record time, and hold a special place in our homes.

 

With this quilt:

We offer an understanding of diversity and community. 

 

We honor the LGBTQ community worldwide. 

 

We value and adore the differences in one another

 

We tell our story with each block.

 

We will build a one-of-a-kind quilt.

 

We share our skills and creative energy.

 

We are allies, friends, partners, and artists united by art.

 

We are making a conscious choice to offer love and peace.

 

We love and respect our neighbors.

 

Ok, so here are the details. Most of you know me personally and know that I do not play by rules and truly believe that there are no mistakes. With that said, I have made a few guidelines. The idea is uniqueness, but unity.

 

We discover ourselves in art and the creation of mixed media. This quilt will be sewn with the blocks that you will make. The blocks will be white with black ink. I will add pops of color using fabric, such as borders, lattice, and binding. Local friends are welcome to come over for the layout and construction. I am seeking a long arm quilter who is willing to volunteer their services. Please let me know if you or someone you know is willing to quilt it this fall.
