Meet The 70273 Project Quilt #34, our first Long Skinny.
62 blocks, 62 souls commemorated
All blocks, piecing, quilting, and finished done by Gisele Therezien.
Would you like to make a Long Skinny for The 70273 Project?
Here’s all you need to keep in mind:
~ block guidelines remain the same: base of blocks is white or slightly off white in color / two and only two red X’s on each block / no letters, initials, numbers, words, or text of any other kind appear anywhere on the front of the quilt
~ finishing, binding, and hanging sleeve requirements remain the same
~ finished quilt must be 15″ or 38 cm wide and can be as long as you want.
~ when you finish piecing the top, email me the following information:
~ # of blocks
~ dimensions (width and length)
~ total number of people commemorate (# of blocks)
~ name of person or people who made blocks
~ name of people responsible for Piecing, Quilting, and Finishing the Long Skinny
~ month and year of completion
~ at least one high resolution photo of the entire front of the quilt
~ 2-3 high resolution closeup photos of the quilt
~ photos of the quilt in progress
When you email me this info, I’ll assign you a quilt number and information for the Quilt Label, and when the quilt is completely finished, send me photos of the finished quilt along with stories about the cloth and stitches used, what made you want to create a long skinny, why you chose to become involved with The 70273 Project and anything else you want to share.
Long Skinnies can be hung vertically (perfect for high ceilings or narrow walls) and horizontally (perfect for a display in an information booth or stall).
Whether you choose to make blocks, Block Quilts, Middlings, Long Skinnies, or make financial donations (use PayPal button in sidebar), thank you for helping commemorate the 70273 people who died so needlessly.
