NHK Partnership Quilt Project for 2017

This year's theme has been announced and QueeniePatch has all the details on her blog, plus she has already finished her block! You really need to check out her blog, but here are some basics, including a few changes from the past (size and date mainly) --- 

For anyone who wants to send in and donate a block to this charity quilt project, here are the rules:

  • one block per person
  • 15 cm x 15 cm for the motif, add a seam allowance of 1-2 cm on all sides
  • flimsy block, i.e. no wadding, no quilting
  • your name should be written with pen in the seam allowance of the lower right hand corner
  • your block should have reached NHK by 31st July, 2016
  • enclose a note with your name, address, tel no, email address
  • send to:
Partnership Quilt
NHK Sutekini Handmade
2-2-1 Jinnan
Shibuya-ku
Tokyo 150-8001
Japan

You can get information on this project and see all of the lovely blocks she has made over the years on her NHK page. Yes, I plan to make a block this year.  How about you?  Let's make this festival more international with all of our blocks!
