Inspired by the Women’s March on January 21, 2017 and the Pussy Hat Project, this block lotto (designed by Berene) is composed of pink triangles marching in the name of women’s rights and in support of peace and love. As women (and men) marched together (millions worldwide and over 60,000 in Toronto alone!), this block lotto project and subsequent quilt will represent the many hands coming together to symbolize our unity.
Not to be mistaken for an alien invasion, the quilty version of a UFO is any unfinished object, be it a partially sewn quilt or a collection of blocks we all seem to accumulate but never put together.
The TMQG will be making kits for Days for Girls (DfG) as our Annual Charity Project. DfG provides sustainable feminine hygiene kits to girls in developing countries, allowing the girls to attend school, which provides greater opportunities for the girls and helps them break out of the cycle of poverty.
