This project is a collaborative quilting project designed by Berene Campbell (@happysewlucky) to remind us that even though we are physically apart from each other for a while, we are all still connected in our hearts.
Here is how it will work: Each person that signs up will be put in a group of eight members. There are 8 different sections to this block. Each member of the group will make 8 of the same section that they are given, using scrappy low volume for the background fabric and an area of color. The area of color will be each group member’s favorite color. One of these sections will be for yourself.
You will mail the seven sections that are not for you to each of the other member’s address BY AUGUST 1. Please write #theconnectedproject on the envelope. When you receive your seven pieces in the mail they must stay in their envelopes untouched. You may not peek! You may not tell others what your block looks like. You may not post on social media until after the reveal. Everyone will open their envelopes to reveal the block at the same time at the August meeting. The surprise is what makes it special!
The Connected Project is open to NJMQG members and sign ups are open until May 29th.
