Tag: 70273 Utah Quilting and Sewing Marketplace

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.

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.

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.
