I've been itching to try paper piecing, and what better reason to try it, than for a charity quilt to benefit @loveloudfest
I'll be working on it during my "fun sewing" breaks during my @kayaskloset work day.
#paperpiecing experts... How much should I be able to do in 30 mins a day?
Who's joining me in making a block or two? #loveislove #suicideprevention #Repost @johnnybarfuss with @repostapp
I am calling out to the quilting community for a little help making a block or two. I was so inspired by the @orlandomqg and everything they did with the #quiltsforpulse movement. I'd like to do something similar. Here in Utah we have the LOVELOUD festival. It was started by Dan Reynolds from the musical group Imagine Dragons. "Dan Reynolds founded the LOVELOUD Foundation to help ignite the relevant and vital conversation about what it means to unconditionally love, understand, accept and support our LGBTQ+ friends and family." Suicide is the number one cause of death for young men in the state of Utah. As most of you know this is a cause that is near and dear to my heart.
When I saw their logo I immediately thought that it needed to be a quilt block. So I asked my friend @sariditty to help and she turned it into a paper pieced pattern. My goal is to make 1 or more quilts using this block as the basis. Depending on how many we can make - I'd like to auction them off and donate the proceeds to the @loveloudfest. I put a PDF of the pattern up on my blog. There's a link in my bio or it's bigcityquilts.blogspot.com
Please repost if you feel called to do so.
Thank you in advance.
Edit: UPDATE - I put a link from a more simple heart block from @cluckclucksew on my blog. If you want to make one of those, that would be awesome too!
