It’s a beautiful article – the layout is award-winning calibre – and I am ever so grateful to Joyce Beverly, publisher of Fayette Woman magazine, for giving me the opportunity to let others in my hometown know about The 70273 Project.
Many of you have asked for a copy, so I’ve included several ways to find the article . . .
For a limited time, you can find us on the home page of the Fayette Woman website. Or you can read about us on the blog.
Maybe you want to read the entire December 2016 issue. (We’re on pages 20-25, and you simply tap the lower righthand corner to turn the pages.)
And if you want just the article, you can download the .pdf version.
Feel free to share it on your Facebook timeline, post it on your biog, or print as many copies as you need to give to friends and family and people who might want to make blocks or piece or quilt of The 70273 Project. Oh, and remember to print a copy for your scrapbook because Joyce has given us permission to use it as we will to benefit The 70273 Project. A request from me . . . please be sure to give Joyce Beverly and Fayette Woman magazine credit and include a link to the web site (www.FayetteWoman.com). And while you’re at it, maybe you want to give Fayette Woman a little love on Facebook.
This is lovely. I hope it spreads in the media.
I am still working on mine. My dear 96y.o. mother-in-law passed away in early December. When I get to 96, I will send them. I am in the 70’s at the moment. Then I will start on another set for another family member.

Such a lovely way to commemorate some of the 70273 and pay a lovely tribute to your mother-in-law and other family members. I am deeply touched and look forward to seeing and touching your blocks. We have quilts being made at various places in the UK. If you’d like, I can put you in touch with some of the people there to save your postage costs. Or maybe you’d like to stand seam-to-seam with people from around the world? Think about it and let me know. Thank you for being part of The 70273 Project Tribe. sososo
I would be interested to know who in the UK is collecting blocks. and…I am a bit confused by what you mean by stand seam-to-seam with people.
I am going to try to find your email and tell you what I am hoping to do with my Textile Art group next Saturday the 21st. We were having for demonstrators and rotating groups, but one lady who was to do a demo is not coming. So, this is the opportunity I was looking for to introduce the group to the idea. Perhaps if they all do one block, then have the info, they might take up the idea to make more on their own.
There are a few things I am not sure about, though I read the bit about speaking to groups.
