Speaking of quilt square making, I noticed some concerns about sewing ability. I realize that not everyone knows how to sew and that is certainly not a requirement of this project. You can paint, fuse, felt, glue, melt...use what ever mediums you want to use with your 12"x12" fabric square. I'll be using a variety of techniques to make mine...for which I will give you all a sneak peek of soon. Take this opportunity to experiment with different things to see what works best for your block and to your liking. This project is also about you all having fun with it.
Also, if you are a teacher, scout leader or parent, this is a project you can get your students, scouts or children involved in too. I'd love to see a variety of blocks from all different skill levels and places. It's a fun project with a deeper meaning and for a great cause. You, like Brenda, don't need to make a human skull, it can be any type of skull. I'll be looking forward to seeing your works.
Send your finished skull quilt squares to:
PO Box 73236
Richmond, VA 23235
If you have any questions about the project, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
The deadline for the skull blocks is Saturday, May 28, 2011, Skull Appreciation Day. We are currently working on a Richmond, VA event for this, which should have the quilts displayed. Afterwards, the quilts will be auctioned off and the proceeds will go to Becky's Fund, which is an organization that helps victims of domestic violence.
