Tattoo Quilt is no ordinary quilt! It is an epic voyage into your heart, via your sewing space, that will take you to places of excitement, frustration, delight, self-reflection …and eventually awesome empowerment!
The quilt was designed by Berene Campbell of Happy Sew Lucky. Beginning in January 2017, Berene designed one block per month, each with one word that was relevant to current affairs that month. The quilt captures a personal journey of searching for positivity during a challenging time of political turmoil worldwide. Berene designed the blocks in the style of vintage tattoos because, like tattoos, the events that were occurring in the world were indelible and cannot be erased from our history. Tattoos are also used historically as a means of documenting events in people’s lives. Her goal for this quilt was to process our feelings, and to provoke dialogue and empathy across borders, whether those borders be geographical, political, religious or even within your friends and family.
You now have the exciting opportunity to make one of these quilts, and participate in Berene’s Sew Along! Finished quilt size is: 63” x 72”.
Pattern is only available through the designer Happy Sew Lucky on Etsy. The Sew Along has now finished but there are a couple of Kona kits still available.
