The Sew a Little Love project is a nationwide project consisting of quilt blocks with fabric replicas of hands. Participants will trace their hand out of fabric and will sew the hand traced fabric on to another piece of fabric. When participants register to participate in the project, they will also be given the opportunity to leave a comment on their registration page which will then be transferred to a special QR code to be read once quilts are completed. At the end of this project, the Creativity Shell plans to have 100 quilts and 4800 participants. Each quilt is unique and will represent a certain topic, theme and/or group.
Compassion Quilt:The compassion quilt is used in times of hardships and endearments. This quilt will be hung in public places such as hospitals, hospice’s, churches, libraries or anywhere that needs compassion. By being a part of the Compassion Quilt, your hands will be used to show compassion to those in need. In total, there will be 10 Compassion Quilts and each quilt will have 48 hands.
This Compassion Quilt is Open to anyone in the community that wants to be a part of this project. Instructions on how to complete the quilt block will be included with the quilt block kit.
