MAKE A COMMUNITY QUILT SQUARE!
we've decided to use our custom fabric scraps to create a jumbo quilt that highlights our amazing ace&jig community! anyone can make a quilt square - so let your kids, partner, and grandparents know. if you'd like to make one of our community quilt squares, read through these instructions and sign up below.
1. SIGN UP - read through all instructions and then sign up at the bottom of this page to create a community quilt square. sign up closes april 30th.
*note: due to the logistics involved with return shipping, we are only able to open this sign up to domestic (usa) participants.
2. get your scrap bundle - we will ship you a bundle of our scraps to use to create your quilt square. each square should be 16'' by 16'' - keep in mind your finished square will be a 14''x14'' square, with 1'' along all sides for seam allowance. need a guide? print our quilt square template here.
*note: our hope is to highlight our custom fabric scraps, so we ask that you stick to just using ace&jig fabrics on your quilt square.
3. get quilting! - you will have one month to create your quilt square. use the scraps in your bundle to piece your quilt square, then feel free to embellish, appliquè, embroider, felt, hand sew onto, etc. get creative, and go for it! we will be assembling each of your squares into a finished community quilt!
4. SHIP BACK - once you've finished your quilt square, use the prepaid return label included in your scrap bundle shipment to send back your square and any excess fabric (to be repurposed into other squares!) please ship back by june 15th.
for each three quilt squares that are completed, we will donate one project night night bag! project night night is a non-profit organization that gives out comforting night bags to children experiencing homelessness, which include a tote bag, a blanket, age-appropriate book, and stuffed animal.
please help us reach our goal of donating 100 night night bags!
*note: since our scraps are limited and this project is for charity, we ask that you only sign up for the number of quilt square bundles you believe you will be able to make.
here are a few examples of quilt squares made by friends of ace&jig.
follow @aceandjigcommunityquilt where we will be posting all of your amazing creations!
thanks for your tremendous outpouring of support for this project! we have exceeded our capacity and have closed our online sign-up. you can still sign up in-person at our two upcoming events: our community day in nyc and our sale with friends in portland, oregon!
