This is an interesting project that is being coordinated by the American Folk Art Museum in NY – click on the link below in Ms. Allen’s letter:

Dear Colleague,
I hope this finds you well and in good health. I am writing on behalf of the American Folk Art Museum in New York to share information about the museum’s Community Quilt Project.

In the spirit of creating together while we are apart, we invite you and your creative community to participate in this collaborative endeavor by sharing a sketch or collage and contributing a square to an American Folk Art Museum Community Quilt.

Read more about the project and find prompts online here.

We would be grateful if you would share this project with any members of your community who might be interested!

Many thanks and all my best,
