An Adventure for September 2016: Let’s Collaborate

made by Nancy Chambers and Jeanne Hewell-Chambers

Beginning September 2016, I’ll be releasing themes (most will be revealed 10-14 days prior to the starting line) for The 70273 Project – challenges,  as quilters call them (at least here in the States) – Adventures, we’re gonna’ call them. Because we’re spread all over the world, most adventures will spread out over 2 months. Some will be 3. Some might run the course of a single month. You just never know.

To kick things off, I thought we’d do some collaborating.

WHO
You – anybody who wants to participate (and you need never have made a block for The 70273 Project before now. This can be how you become part of The 70273 Project.) – and me.

WHAT
We’ll create a block together. The quilt label will reflect both names, and these blocks will go into their own quilt(s).

WHEN
September 1 – September 30, 2016. As in you can start making the starter blocks on 9/1/2016, and all blocks being sent to me must be postmarked by 9/30/2016 10/31/2016.

Me, I have until the first anniversary (2/14/2017) to finish the collaborations because I’m optimistic and  hoping for an enthusiastically overwhelming response from y’all.

HOW
You are the Originator.
I am the Collaborator.
As the Originator, you cut out a base in the size of your choice, lay down one red X in the technique of your choice, complete and sign a Provenance Form, then mail the form and the block base(s) to me. I lay down the second red X in the technique of my choice, and we have ourselves a block for The 70273 Project and a collaboration. A partnership. A duet. And most importantly: another person commemorated.

HOW MANY
Each Originator can send me up to 50 blocks.
For those of you who commit to make a certain number of blocks by our next incremental milestone of 12/31/2016 set by Kitty Sorgen, you get 1/2 credit for each block you send as an Originator. Soon enough I’ll be calling for commitments in the Facebook group.

And there you have it – our first Adventure in The 70273 Project. Questions? Ask me here in the comments, send me an email (see envelope icon in upper right-hand sidebar), send me a message on Facebook, post in the Facebook group, post on the Facebook page.

Keep me busy, y’all.

Please.

        LOL
        On the bright side, if my blocks take too long in the mail you’ll have already finished sewing everyone else’s!

Pull up a chair why don't you, and let's talk . . .
