Call for Quarantine Quilts!

The “stay-at-home” orders have officially ceased in many countries as well as all 50 states in the US. Which seems like a good time to mark an end to something horrible by celebrating what quilt art was accomplished. I want to call on everyone who is willing to share what quilts were created during the quarantine.

A quilting friend of mine had made 7 quilt tops, as well as quilted and bound 2 quilts, a wall hanging and a table runner. She has also cut out a new quilt with 48 blocks and started an applique block for another quilt. She probably has both of those projects done too, as well as 3 others because that was the tally 2 weeks ago.

What have you accomplished during the quarantine? It can be that you completed a project start to finish or that you simply bound it during the time. If you are willing to share, please send me a photo with the name of the quilt, if you quilted it or someone else and other details. I’d like to compile a video record for our vlog of the artwork created during this difficult time. Let’s have something good come out of this!

Please select your best quarantine quilt example, take a good photo, and email it to me at Lori@quiltandtextilecollections.com We can only select about 30 quilts of those submitted, so it will be a representation of the art made during quarantine. I can’t wait to see what you’ve created!
