Good morning, everyone!
I am thrilled to announce that the Georgia E Pluribus Unum Quilthas been selected to be part of the East Cobb Quilter's Guild's Georgia Celebrates Quilts show in June!!
I am in the process of quilting the top, and I need your help! I want the back of this quilt to be FILLED with the names of young Georgia cancer fighters before it hangs in the show. Here's how we're going to do it:
1) If you are the parent or guardian of a child in Georgia who is fighting or who fought against childhood cancer, please email me your child's first and last name/last initial to hollyanne (at) quiltsforcure.org
2) If you are reading this, SHARE this post on your Facebook page, via email, or on other social media platforms.
Here's how the quilting is coming along so far:
I'm very excited for an E Pluribus Unum quilt to hang publicly for the very first time. At this show, the back will only be visible by request, but my artist statement explains the significance of the quilt as a way to honor Georgia's childhood cancer fighters.
For those of you who want to mark your calendars, the Georgia Celebrates Quilts Show will display several hundred quilts of various styles. It will be June 8-10, 2017 at the Cobb County Civic Center, and I believe tickets are $10 at the door.
So let's review...
1) SHARE SHARE SHARE this post so that as many people as possible can learn about this quilt and this project. In addition to this Georgia quilt, there is also the Atlanta quilt. Let's FILL THEM UP and honor as many of Georgia's brave fighters as we can
2) How to Submit a Name: Email me at hollyanne (at) quiltsforcure.org with your child's first and last name/last initial. There are many more quilts in theE Pluribus Unum Project to come, so if you are outside of Georgia, include your child's home state as well.
Thanks everyone! Spread the word!
