Blocks made by Barbara Atwell
Week 4. Can you believe it?
We’re still at 41 countries, and we’ve had many more people from those countries become a part of The 70273 Project.
I have 76 blocks in my hand, and I don’t know how many people are in the 31 Blocks in 31 Days Event, so at the beginning of next month when the mail starts coming in, we should see a significant climb on our goal graph.
The 70273 Project Facebook page is currently at 339 likes, so if everybody would invite 1-3 friends every day (or just go through your Facebook friends list and invite everybody at once), that number will climb at a nice clip.
Four women have raised their hand to quilt, when we get to that point.
Three women have raised their hands to piece tops together.
We continue to grow in participants, in blocks, in worldwide enthusiasm.
I reworked the “elevator speech” for The 70273 Project last week: The 70273 Project commemorates the 70273 physically and mentally disabled people murdered by the German Nazis and celebrates the physically and mentally challenge people who live among us today.
Oh, and I had another idea: I think that when the quilts are all finished, we need to hold The 70273 Project Bon Voyage Gathering. We’ll huddle up at the same time in the same place to have the first look at the quilts, meet each other, take a lot of photos, and spend some quiet time to remember the souls we commemorate and celebrate the souls we know and love today.
Thank y’all for being a part of The 70273 Project.
And on we grow . . .
