This was a week marked by planning for the future of The 70273 Project. I think you’re going to like some of the ideas, so be sure you keep tuning in to the blog so you don’t miss anything.

The Collaborate with Jeanne Adventure ends soon – there are still 5 days to get your one-red-X blocks in the mail – so stitch those single X’s and send them on over.

Kim Monins and Gisele Therezien emailed me this week, offering to rally quilters of The Channel Islands to make blocks and quilts and mount exhibits, so we’ve been in touch laying down the systems that will get both required and helpful information back and forth. The enthusiasm I’m hearing from The Channel Islands is phenomenal. I’ll be blogging more about this soon, so stay tuned. And hey, The Channel Islands are a mere 14 miles off the coast of France, so I’m planning to visit when I go over for Le Projet 70273 en Occitanie exhibit in Lacaze, France June 24 and 25, 2017. Join me?

MJ Kinman Pieced and Quilted Quilt #5 of The 70273 Project, and she delivered it in person when she came to visit for a few days.. It is so beautiful, y’all. (Shells  brought along one of her dazzling diamond quilts, so I got to see it in person and even touch it.)

Quilt 1, Pieced by Kitty Sorgen and Quilted by MJ Kinman, was on  display as part of the Smoky Mountain Splendor Show at Western Carolina University on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.

To date, I’ve been contacted by people in 89 countries.
