Some of the first people I heard from when I launched The 70273 Project were Kim Monins and Gisele Therezein, two creative, talented, dynamo women who immediately stepped up and put Jersey, Channel Islands U.K. on The 70273 Project map. Here we see Quilt #335 made of blocks made by these residents of Parish St. Helier:
Vic Tanner Davy
Susan De La Haye
Annie Le Brun
Pauline Le Bailly
Quilt #335 measures 46.5″ x 79″ (118cm x 200cm) and commemorates 100 lives. Kim Monins is the Piecer, Quilter, and Finisher, and she’s also the woman who took these gorgeous photos. Doesn’t #335 look right at home in nature? From January 7 to 28, 2018, the Jersey Heritage Center is hosting an exhibit of The 70273 Project Quilts made in Jersey, Channel Islands U.K., and I’ll be profiling more Channel Island quilts in the coming days and telling you more about Kim and Gisele. They’re awesome.
Remember to sign up for The 70273 Project XXtra newsletter. First edition coming out soon. And thank you for continuing to commemorate the 70273.
