the front of Rochester Cathedral


Before the ink dried on the idea called The 70273 Project, Lucy Horner (a friend on Instagram at that time) offered to collect blocks for The 70273 Project at her shop. Little did she know that 2 years later, she would have the proverbial tiger by the tail. Lucy’s infectious enthusiasm coupled with the good hearts and hands of countless people in the Rochester area made for an explosion of interest in commemorating those we honor. And now, at last, these are the quilts created and exhibited in Rochester Cathedral:
