This is the idea.
We all make squares measuring 9x9in (22,9cm x 22,9cm) for the quilt.
The only rules are:
- the size: 9x9in (22,9cm x 22,9cm)
- leave about 0.4in(1cm) seam allowance (room to sow the pieces together).
- It should be able to be washed it in the washing machine.
- tiny stories written/stitched etc. on fabric
- tiny story illustrations
- hitrecord images
- recording devices
- draw with markers that are permanent on fabric
- Make a stencil to use in some way or another
- Do something with textile paint
- Knit/crochet/cross stitch a square (make sure it’s the right size after being washed too)
- Make a square using a mix of the above materials
- Sow on fabric, buttons, beads, yarn…
- Collaborate on a square at a show (librarygirl6 will try to bring fabric when she goes)
Then once you have made the square(s) you take a picture and post it here.
Remember to contribute it to this collaboration.
Depending on how many squares you make we’ll make 1 or more quilts!
Now we need to decide on what to do with the quilt once it’s/there’re done!
These are some of the ideas so far:
- We keep it ;o)
- We get it to Joe somehow…
- We choose someone who gets to keep it
- We make a list and send the quilt to each other (we get to keep it for a month).
How this idea came about:
My initial idea: “Someone” should make a tiny stories quilt…
I then tweeted with Ryan Patrick and librarygirl6 about it.
Then we talked about it on tinychat one evening/morning.
And then librarygirl6 jumped on board to help out with putting it all together.
