Let There be Peace on Earth Project

28 Mar

So while reading the Ravelry forums I came across a project being put together by SophiaRowen. She is making a quilt comprised of a flag from every nation in the world. This is going to be her senior project thesis and displayed at the art show. If someone decides to buy it she will be donating the funds to Doctors without Boarders. Awesome! In her words:

Let There be Peace on Earth (and Let it Begin with Me)

“A few weeks ago, I was on Ravelry in the Knitting our Way to Peace group. In this thread, I brought up a project I would like to do for my senior thesis show this fall. The other Ravelrers were enthusiastic, and now that things have temporarily settled down a little, I’d like to get started with it.

The idea is this: a flag for every nation of the world, sewn together to make a large quilt. At the center would be the words “Let there be Peace on Earth.” I think it would be much more meaningful if it was a group project, rather than an individual one.”

Click the link above for full details. I have signed up for the flag of North Korea. I think this is an amazing idea and I really commend her for taking the initiative to put this together. The amount of work that is going to be involved to coordinate and sew this together boggles my mind. The great part about the project is that anyone can participate. She is taking any kind of fiberart related craft. So knitting, crocheting, quilting, embroidery.. just as long as it’s hand made and she can sew it together. You have until August 1st to claim a flag, but you’d better hurry if there is a specific one that you have in mind. So far as of today 157 out of 198 are spoken for! (psst Gina…. Guam is still avail~ ^_~ )
