“The Channel Islands,UK were occupied by the Nazis for 5 years during WWII, so we have many historical and emotional links to those dark times,” Kim tells me in her first email after hearing about The 70273 Project. Kim Monins and Gisele Therezien – both talented, creative, accomplished quilters – immediately begin stitching blocks with dedicated […]

Happy Fourth Birthday to Us!

Four years ago today, I gave myself the best birthday present ever when I mashed the “publish” button and launched The 70273 Project. What an incredible, amazing, astonishing four years it has been.

All Good Things Must Come to an End

The 70273 Project quilts that have been on display in Rochester Cathedral since 23 Jan 18 came down today, and how very appropriate that as they made their exit they were serenaded by the King’s School Choir rehearsing for their spring concert. Thank you, Rochester Cathedral for hosting the exhibit. Thank you, Wendy Daws, Edina, […]
