A collaboration block
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.
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.
We’ll create a block together. The quilt label will reflect both names, and these blocks will go into their own quilt(s).
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
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.
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.
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.
I told you about the Facebook group and page, here are other places of interest for happenings in The 70273 Project:
Subscribe to the blog so you don’t miss anything. (There’s a lot going on and a lot coming up, let me tell you.)
Follow the Pinterest board.
I’m game! Let’s keep her busy, Team!
Do it, Sugar! (The Engineer is gonna’ flip out when he reads this post! I told him the idea, but not the particulars.)
Call me a dreamer, but I am pretty sure it won’t be the first time you’ve surprised him.
Count me in!!
It’ll be a good way of cheking how long it takes to get there!
Oh yay! I get to collaborate with Maria!

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