Inside Envelope 37: Alida Palmisano



Blocks 481 and 482 were created by Alida Palmisano. Aren’t they stunning? Alida writes . . .

I am very new to quilting (I started early 2013) and I immediately fell in love with both the creative aspect of this art, and with the community efforts of projects to help others. I have been involved in making donation quilts since the beginning, and I think that projects like The 70273 Project are extremely important to raise awareness of present and past struggles that we, as society, have to deal with. I am blessed with a wonderful life that I appreciate a lot, and I try not to take anything for granted.

I am a researcher in the biomedical field, and when I am not in front of a computer I love to design my own paper piecing patterns, make scrappy and colorful quilts, and spend time with my significant other and with my kitten sewing helper.


Thank you for being a part of The 70273 Project, Alida. Your spirit is as beautiful as your blocks, and I’m delighted and grateful to have you be a part of The 70273 Project.

P.S. I spent tonight doing a little work under the hood, trying to grow the font size to a decent, readable scale and cleaning up a few other things that have consistently gone awry between my blog and the mail carrier. I know what I’ve done, and I know it looks good in the previews, but the real test will be when it lands on your digital doorstep tomorrow morning. Of course you know this means no more kickbacks from optometrists. But you’re worth it.

Thank you for your patience as I give our eyes a much-needed vacation!
