Envelopes 2, 4, and 6, Please

Block24DeborahMacKinnon copy

Envelope #2
is from Deborah L. J. Mackinnon
who hails from Washington.
Deborah writes:

I began my journey as an artist after retiring from a career in education.
My love of learning combined with a life long love of fabric.
Self-taught, I’m a member of Contemporary Quilt Arts.
My current project is a series of quilted artist’s books.
Additionally, I’m an active Rotarian and a joyful grandmother.
“Making visible the invisible” is what motivated me to create my block.
The red x’s are shadowed with black fabric pen
to symbolize the prejudice
that physically and mentally disabled individuals
still endure.

Thank you for initating this project.

Sincerely,
Deborah L. J. Mackinnon

Thank you for participating in this project, Deborah.

Envelope #3 from Georgia contains
a block from Anonymous Maker 2
created in honor of Nancy Chambers

Block32Anonymous3

and a block from Anonymous Maker 3
writes “A very worthy project!”
and created this block
in honor of Nancy Chambers

Thank y’all for making these beautiful blocks
in honor of Nancy. They do her justice
in their vulnerability,
in what must surely look to some
like imperfections.
These blocks, like Nancy,
are beautiful
in their own unique way.

    This is wonderful Jeanne! I love that you are including some words from the makers – great to have the added richness of context with each block. I am sharing these posts on Pinterest, FB & Twitter xo …I am quite envious of your mail: it must be with joyful steps that you make your trips to the PO!

      It is fun going to the mailbox, and I love when folks include a story or a tidbit or something. Thanks for ALL you to for The 70273 Project. I don’t know when you sleep. Oh wait. You don’t;)

        Yup – sleeping is so last decade…. So…. would you prefer waiting for me to finish up my squares completely so you have one fat parcel, or lots of little (cheaper for me, more complicated for you to keep track of) packets as I do them? Your call! x

        • whollyjeanne

          Though I long to see and hold your beautiful, evocative blocks, just wait and send them together so it’s cheaper for you. xo

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