Young and old we invite you to contribute to this:
The OVADA Covid Quilt Project
Embroider, Stitch, Applique, Weave, Sew, Knit or Print!
The squares you create will eventually be sewn together to make a giant quilt as a memorial to the shared experience of the pandemic.
There are two options for your design:
- An abstract response using only Orange and Red and black
- Respond to the broad theme of family togetherness and interior life
The template is a 15cm square but please add on 1cm all round to allow for the seams! So the ‘cut’ size is a 17 cm square
When you have completed your square please send an image to OVADA and we will add it to the growing digital quilt here on our website.
We will ask you to send your contributions to OVADA by post as soon as is appropriate, and they will be combined into a physical quilt.
Make as many as you can!
Submissions will close when lock-down ends.
We hope to exhibit the work and then donate it to a good cause like a Hospital, the City Council or a Care Home.
