Calling all quilters and crafters! Show your support for the Ukraine with quilting.
Call out for the #sunflowerquiltforukraine Project
Janno McLaughlin @jannoart is a regional artist based in Scone who has set herself the task of creating a quilt as big as a house to deliver to the Ukrainian embassy in London then on to Ukraine to be wrapped Christo-like around a significant landmark.
With hand-stitched squares rolling in from Australia, Africa, New York, NZ and the UK, Janno is aiming for over 9,000 pieces of 30x30 sunflower inspired fabric that she, alongside an army of local CWA women will sew together.
👉CALL TO ACTION
For people all over Australia (and the world) to get crafting and send in a 30 x 30 cm block, based on the themes of sunflowers, hope, optimism, and peace.
PLEASE SEND FINISHED BLOCKS TO JANNO BY JUNE 30, TO PO BOX 746, SCONE, NSW, 2337, UPDATES ON @jannoart
👉 Janno will also be at the Sydney Craft & Quilt Fair with the quilt in progress. June 29 to July 3 at The Dome, Sydney Showground, Homebush.
👉 WHAT: An enormous art project to show the people of Ukraine that people from all walks of life stand with them, from all over the world.
🥰 Janno declares, “My sunflower quilt is intended as a metaphoric hug for Ukraine and its children. A symbol of love and support that can wrap them or be touched and held, hung over a chosen building, bombsite, or train station. ...”
