I see RED, I see RED, I see RED

I have been having a blogtoberfest-free time for a few days. There were a few matters that needed tending to with no distractions.
But now I am back and look what I have found! THE QUILT PROJECT is a community friendship project based on redwork with everyone being asked to "work a square in red". There were 66 squares in total. At the Quilt Project site you can read about each of the creators and the story behind their "square". 

After everyone had sent in their squares, the quilt was constructed, displayed for one day only, then dismantled with each square being returned to each of the creators. This is an amazing project and was initiated in Melbourne by Kirsty from kootoyoo. Well Done Kirsty and to all the red square creators. It has inspired me to start needlework again!

  1. It was a great project to be involved with and definately made you feel like you were part of something special. Kirsty is a clever one for coming up with and sharing the idea. I'm sure she'll do something equally as cool again one day... and now that you're inspired to start your needlework again, you'll be ready to be involved!
