Every year Europeans mark Holocaust Remembrance Day at the end of January. The Engineer, Tari Vickery, and I are honored to be in attendance and participate in January 2018. Quilts of The 70273 Project were on display in Durham Cathedral, Rochester Cathedral, and the Jersey Heritage Center and Museum in the Channel Islands. It’s been two years, and I still can’t adequately express my feelings or tell you about the people, the quilts, the stories, the connections, the tears of laughter, sorrow, and of Knowing, the immense hospitality and warm welcome. I’m still processing . . . And smiling . . . And chortling . . . And whispering gratitude. What an honor it was to meet people I knew only in social media, to bear witness to their stories, to feel the power of the quilts they made.

A big, huge, ginormous bouquet of gratitude to The 70273 Project Ambassadors – Margaret Jackson, Mary Turner, and Christine FitzGerald in Durham; Lucy Horner in Rochester; and Kim Monins and Gisele Therezien in the Channel Islands – who spent countless hours scheduling, coordinating, and staging Block Drives and these massive exhibits. And more bouquets of gratitude to the patient, supportive spouses, siblings, children, pets, grandchildren, and friends like Sharon Howell, Bev Bunn, Wendy Dawes, Edina Geering, Beryl Connelly, Annie Labruyere, Sue Harris, and countless – and I do mean countless – others in the U.K. who went above and beyond to commemorate tens of thousands of those we memorialize and create exhibits and events that will not soon be forgotten by those of us in attendance.

In case you’re wondering, The Engineer, Tari, and I paid our own way to these exhibits – as we always do – and we’re very grateful to those who gave us a bed to sleep on, fed  us, and ferried us hither and yon while we were there. Whenever we travel to an exhibit, each of us pays to take an extra large suitcase so we can bring home as many quilts as possible. We still have a few quilts in need of a ride home from Durham, however, so if you’d like to give them wings, please donate what you can and help us get them home to 70273 Project Heartquarters. When you donate through the Pay Pal Giving Fund, it only takes a few minutes to register and designate The 70273 Project – a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation – as the charity to receive your donation. There are no fees deducted when donating through The Pay Pal Giving Fund, which means The 70273 Project keeps your entire donation. Thank you in advance.

Meet Quilt 423

Allow me to introduce Quilt 423 of The 70273 Project.

As one who once taught book and box making workshops, I chortled gleefully when Miss 423 arrived in her own handmade chariot, complete with a (still-uncompleted) subtraction worksheet turned protection flap! The box is made by the same creative hands that picked up the quilt top last year at the Minnesota Quilt Show and finished it into this quilt: Rhende Hagemeister, a woman who’s as much fun as she is talented.

 

“The tears flowed most of the time. I thought about each pair of red XX’s and vowed to honor each one – their names, their families, their lives – blowing in the wind for us to remember and honor. They spoke to me.” ~ Rhende Hagemeister

The knowledgeable and talented one named Teddy Pruett pieced #423 who measures 38.75” wide by 60” high and commemorates 47 souls. Data Angels from around the world are busy entering information on each block and quilt, and as soon as they’re done (and there are several backups of the . . . landscape-oriented table cause the word “spreadsheet” sends me into a fetal position in a dark room!), I’ll be back to tell you who all has a block in this beauty. For now, enjoy the photos  (especially the one of the front that’s being held up by The Engineer in what I’ve come to call The Steve Maneuver, named after Kim Monins’ husband who held up many, many quilts throughout Jersey, Channel Islands (U.K.) and help me thank Teddy, Rhende, and all the as yet unidentified Makers for their contribution to The 70273 Project. And hey, if you’re willing to become a Data Angel, let me know. It’s something you can do from the comfort of your own computer anywhere in the world.

If you live in the Minnesota vicinity, mark your calendars ’cause The 70273 Project, The Engineer, and I will be back at the Minnesota Quilt Show in Rochester this year. See the calendar for details. There will be many quilts that were touched by hands from Minnesota on display for the first time this year, so be sure to stop by and see them and let me call you “Sugar” to your face.

The 70273 Project on Exhibit at the University of Central Missouri till August 2019

University of Central Missouri President Roger Best, Ph.D. and Provost, Mike Godard, Ph.D. welcome Jeanne to campus

4/25/2019 GOOD NEWS UPDATE: The response to the exhibit in the McClure Archives and University Library on the Campus of the University of Central Missouri has been so successful, the exhibit has been extended through December 31, 2019! If you’d like to take your group (think class, guild, organization, family), let me know or contact Dr. Clifford-Napoleone at the museum directly. And now we return to our blog post, currently in progress . . .

One month and 27 days after being sworn in as the 16th  President of University of Central Missouri, Roger Best, Ph.D. appeared before me during mic check, introduced himself, and when I thanked him for stopping by to introduce himself, assured me he was staying for my presentation. And he did. The theme of Best’s inaugural address was “milestones” (something the University of Central Missouri enjoys a lot of). Important note and hint: His wife is a quilter. I look forward to meeting her when I’m back on campus in August.

Thanks to the efforts of Amber R. Clifford-Napoleone, Ph.D., the Mules (I LOVE their mascot)  of Central Missouri have yet another milestone for their history book. More than a year ago, Dr. Clifford-Napoleone, Quilter and Director of The McClure Archives and University Museum, asked to host an exhibit of The 70273 Project quilts, and so, as of March 29, 2019, The McClure Archives and University Museum is home to the first exhibit of The 70273 Project on a college campus as well as the largest (more than 100 quilts on display) and longest-running (March to August 2019) exhibit of The 70273 Project to date.

Jeanne and Becky Collis with her granddaughters, Averi and Cassia. The girls are ticklish. Ask me how I know.

Besides President Best, Godard, and Clifford-Napoleone, the Dean, various organizational chairs, students, professors, citizens who work with Veterans, local quilters, and community leaders filled the room.  Aaaannnnddd, some 70273 Projecteteers came and sat on the front row! It was great  fun to call these Tribe members “Sugar” to their face.

My presentation kicked off Politics and Social Justice Week and the opening of The 70273 Project Exhibit. Due to my eye problems (that have since been diagnosed), my daughter Alison went with me to be my eyes. She recorded this video of my presentation with no tripod! It’s been almost a month, and her arms are still shaking, so yes, I’m getting a tripod before my  next presentation.

Alison won bonus points with the rest of the family for catching me in this visual short joke.

Fantastic questions followed my presentation, and after 25 minutes, the Q and A session had to be cut off because (a) I’d assigned homework to a lot of people that was due immediately following the presentation and (b) there were refreshments waiting down the hall.

6 when line the stairs. Painted on the riser to each step is the word "welcome" in different languages.

Y’all know I couldn’t pass up an opportunity to capture a photo with my new friends on the stairs bidding visitors welcome in a variety of different languages.

After enjoying refreshments and good conversations, we walked back to The McClure for what we all came to see: the quilts on exhibit. Dr. Clifford-Napolone’s students did an outstanding job of hanging the exhibit.

Minis of The 70273 Project were displayed in glass cases. Mirrors were used so that both sides of the Minis could be seen by visitors.

The exhibit is open Monday to Thursday, 9 am to 5 pm, and it’s up through the end of August, so be sure to get by there and prepare to be mesmerized.

It was an honor and a thrill to be on this beautiful campus, and I look forward to being back there in August of this year for block drives, chats, and story swapping with students, classes, and community organizations. Amber and I are doing some calendar coordinating now, so check the calendar or subscribe to the newsletterand/or the blog for details.

Thank you for having me in Missouri, y’all. It was SO much fun.

If your campus or class or organization would like to have me visit to hold a block drive, speak to classes, do a presentation,  just holler.

University of Central Missouri, Here I (Um . . . We) Come

The largest exhibit to date of The 70273 Project quilts will be on display at The McClure Archives and University Museum on the campus of University of Central Missouri from March 28 to August 24, 2019. More than 100 quilts of all sizes will be on exhibit at The McClure – including lots and lots of blocks and quilts made by residents of Missouri – making this  the largest exhibit since the International Quilt Festival in November 2017. Thank you, Amber Clifford-Napoleone, Ph.D., Director of The McClure and Associate Professor of Anthropology (and she’s a quilter, too, me thinks) for making this happen.

Jeanne to Deliver Opening Lecture

On March 28 2019, I’ll deliver the opening lecture at 11 a.m. in Elliott Union 240 with a reception following at The McClure. Both are free and open to the public. If you can be there on 3/28, promise you’ll come be in the audience for the lecture and stay for the reception so I can call you “Sugar” and thank you to your face.

Hours, Directions, and Parking

The McClure is open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.  Monday to Thursday. You can find more info on the calendar.

Elliott Union is located on the northeast corner of Holden and Clark streets, on the campus of the University of Central Missouri, approximately 50 miles east of Kansas City.

Free visitor parking is available in visitor parking lots. HERE is the link to the campus map.

St. John’s Notting Hill Exhibit

a reverend stands before white quilts adorned with pairs of red X's

If you’re in the vicinity of London and would like to see some of The 70273 Project quilts, you must find your way to St. John’s Notting Hill before 10 May 2018. When I first heard from The Rev’d Canon William Taylor, he wrote: “I have been very moved by the exhibition and am working with the Serbian Orthodox Church on the genocide of the Second World War. I would like to offer to hose the exhibition in London after it comes down at Rochester. Would that be possible?”Thanks to the efforts and assistance of Lucy Horner, it was not only possible, this exhibit happened.

3 empty walls waiting for quilts to be hung

The quilts come down on 10 May 2018, so go on now, scoot. Thank you, William, for displaying the quilts and giving others an opportunity to experience them, and thank you, Lucy Horner, for all the time and energy you continue to devote to The 70273 Project.

Would you like to host an exhibit? Let me know.

Let’s Welcome The Netherlands

04May18

After agonizing over it a while, The Engineer and I opt to go to lunch together, and sure enough what we feared would happen, did. We get back to the exhibit to find a note in our journal from a woman that I would love to have met. Fortunately (1) we eat fast and (2) she comes back, and now you get to meet her, too. Yvonne promises to galvanize the Netherlands and get them into The 70273 Project in a big way. And one detail I’m not sure she mentions in the video: though they’re not Jewish, she and her husband live in a Jewish cemetery. Every year on Memorial Day, school children come in to help clean the graves, put out flowers, and hear stories from Holocaust survivors.

two women stand beside a multi-colored quilt

At the end of the day as we are leaving, we take the circuitous route (we do every day when entering and leaving) so we can view more of the amazing quilts on display, I hear my name and look around to see Yvonne beckoning me over. She’s won a Teacher’s Award ribbon, and oh my goodness is it an award ever well-earned.

a closeup of the border of a quilt

I couldn’t get a photo of the entire quilt because there were so many people standing around admiring it, but I’ll get one today before the crowds arrive and add it here. It is 225 mini quilts stitched together and surrounded by a spectacular border . . . and it’s all hand pieced and quilted. Yes, really.

You know how you meet someone and feel an instant connection and desire to spend more time with them? Well, Yvonne is on that list with so many other people we’ve met along the way. I sense (well, hope) a visit to the Netherlands in my future, and maybe Yvonne and her husband would like to come spend some time atop a mountain beside a waterfall.

I have so many more stories and photos to tell y’all, but when I sit down at the computer at night, I go to sleep! They’ll come. I promise.

I am, however, able to upload a few short videos if you’re interested.

Utah Quilting and Sewing Marketplace Exhibit

logo green base with blue and green quilt pattern and words Utah Quilting & Sewing Marketplace

When Jina and Moana stopped by The 70273 Project Special Exhibit at the International Quilt Festival in Houston, TX last November and invited us to be a Special Exhibit at the Utah Quilting & Sewing Marketplace, it seemed like a l-o-n-g time away. But here we are, and it seems like it was just yesterday we stood talking with Jina and Moana in Houston. Funny, that.

The Engineer and I spent today flying across country to be here, and I thought maybe you’d like to know which quilts will be exhibited and maybe even find some of your own work on display. Feel free to read all the way through this post or enter your name in the search box in the right sidebar and find it that way. And hey, if you’re in the neighborhood or can get here, come on over and be sure to stop by The 70273 Project Special Exhibit and say Hey.

Note: Each quilt will be profiled individually in its own blog post as we go along, and there you’ll find complete info like countries of residence and all dedications along with stories. Oh my goodness, y’all know how I adore and cherish the stories! I need help entering information into a spreadsheet, so if any of you are willing to do that or have a responsible, attention-oriented teenager who would be, let me know. Having that Central Headquarters Spreadsheet will be a tremendous help. (And for the record, it took me forever to type the word “spreadsheet” because just the thought of the word stomps down my creative spirit! I call them Landscape Oriented Tables.)

And now without further ado, if you can’t be in Utah, enjoy the exhibit here. And hey, thank y’all so much for all you do to commemorate these 70,273 souls.
