I was invited to participate in a National Quilt project. One block from each state will be included and represent the theme:
The American National Quilt-Quilting Beyond Conflict
"Free to Create a beautiful life beyond conflict and divisioin while maintaining individual creative uniqueness in a united shared vision"
This quilt is meant to become a national and world wide symbol of this statement and delivered to the White House. The Central Home of All Americans
The letter below is from the project developer, Michelle Costen. If you are interested in participating please contact her at the email below or contact me and I will forward your email to Michelle.
"Dear Quilters of America,
We need at least one dedicated quilter from each state in America to give a helping hand and take part in the making of the American National Quilt. A Quilt which will become a gift and a National hands on event involving American quilters across the country and delivered to the White House as a symbol of a free American uniting joyfully and creatively and showing how it is possible that every state can join in the making of something beautiful and good without division and conflict. It is in this way we can become a living active example and show support for the Whole of our country.
If you or a group of you within each state or any quilter you know is interested in having a helping hand in the making of the American National Quilt please respond to me at My Quilt Place or at firstname.lastname@example.org for further details and I will be happy to tell you how you can take part in this wonderful National event. For each State to get involved it will only take making just one 12 inch applique block, surly we can find volunteers from each state to do this and help build the American National Quilt.
I Look forward to hearing from you,
Sincerely and gratefully yours,
Member of AQS
