A 70273 Project Challenge

In January, I posted about The 70273 Project, explaining how I came upon the project and why I decided to join by making some blocks. You can read my original post here. Not long after that, I was invited to share The 70273 Project with our quilt club as a challenge, asking them to join me in making some blocks. Today I’ll share with you today the results of that challenge.

The blocks I’ll show here are those made by some of the women in my quilt group. Each one is unique in its own way, and each one represents one life taken.

You’ll see that the blocks are made using different materials. There are only three sizes for the blocks, and we have some of each size. In all, our group made 54 blocks.

The next step is to scan all the blocks and provenance forms, then give an id tag to each block. Once that is done, the blocks will either be mailed to Jeanne or will be made into a quilt. I’ll decide which once I have the scanning and tagging done.

I’m linking up with Sarah at Confessions of a Fabric Addict today, since I’m whooping it up for the ladies in my quilt group!

Enjoy your weekend, all!

  1. OMG, I had not went off and read what this project was all about before now. So sad. Glad you and you group are able to help out Jeanne. Very thoughtful of you.

  2. What a wonderful project1 I had not heard of this before and what an impressive way to bring attention to something we could so easily forget. Kudos to you and your group for participating. I feel like the addition of the id tag will be a moving and difficult experience.
