square for japan

this is a project I am participating at to help one of our friends in Japan

one of her friends lives in Ishinomaki, her greatest wish was to open a patchwork shop, during 3 years she travelled once a month to Tokyo to take classes at my friends place

she finally opened her shop last december and now everything is completly destroyed, isn't that dramatic

we promised Masako to send her a lttle bit of comfort by creating a quilt with all signed squares so I beg you to give 5 minutes of your time and greate a square

you can also share this info with all your sewing friends/guild/ ..... and send all these squares to my place

In june we will assembly the quilt (s) depending the number of blocks we get


you can find more information here

the site is in french, so if you're speaking english use a translator


just in case you work with inches, the square is 4" finished

center square in white or beige, the triangles in one color (but you can use different fabrics), the writing (first name , family name, city, date and your message) should be done using a pigma pen

in the next pic you can see the 2 blocks Masako created


you can contact me just in case and I can give you my mail address to send the squares

thanks altready so much for you help
