Attention everyone else - maybe you should try to organise something like this with your family or friends - wouldn't it just be so worth it?
I want to start a new family tradition where each year or maybe twice a year, we each take the time to decorate a small patch of fabric that will later be sewn into a large patchwork quilt for one specific family member at a time until we all have beautiful, unique, heirlooms that we can treasure... Here is some inspiration...
|See how there is so much amazing detail in each square. it would be way to daunting and time consuming to do yourself|
but if we each do one square at a time, and then get an amazing treasure like this at the end of it
it will be so worthwhile.
|...and the best part is that because we are all so different each little square will be a reflection of ourselves and|
how we think of that particular family member. But it doesn't have to be symbolic, we can just go nuts...
I hope you guys are with me. I stole all of the above pictures from PROJECT PATCHWORK and there are loads more pics if you follow that link.
It will take us years to all get a quilt, but I think it will be a nice tradition to start. We can pull a name out of a hat to see who's quilt we will work on next, so that it is fair.
I will volunteer to be the piece putter-togetherer...
Let me know what you think OK xo
