Tattoo Quilt

This is an ongoing project, started in January 2017, in reaction to the political situation in the world at the moment. The hate and prejudice that is being promoted and enabled is both heart breaking, shocking and infuriating. Have we learned nothing from our history as human beings on this Earth?! If we are honest, we are all guilty of prejudice to some degree when in certain situations. Or we inadvertently support or enable it by not standing up to it. I’d like to work on that. My frustration watching the news has stoked a fire in my belly that I’m trying to process with creativity. Working with relevant words / “intentions” makes me more conscious of my actions, and hopefully sends some positivity out into the world, as well as a degree of support to those that are marginalized, displaced and in danger. It’s a minuscule thing, I know, however if we all do even some small positive things my hope is that it will accumulate into a greater good energy. This project is one of my positive things.

I have made the patterns available for sale so that others who feel the same way can use the fire in their bellies to work on their intentions too. They are mammoth patterns to design and write, a lot of time and energy goes into each one. For this reason the patterns aren’t free, however I have tried to keep the pricing reasonable given their size and complexity compared with others out there. In addition to my effort, I have been incredibly fortunate to have the support of a phenomenal group of pattern testers, to whom I am most grateful. If you are one of my testers reading this …thank you!

The patterns are available in both my Etsy and Craftsy shops. You can also see the most recent patterns in the line in my @happysewlucky Instagram feed or everyone’s versions here at #tattooquilt
