Andrea reminded me this week of a project I did 4 years ago for a campaign to highlight FGM - Female Genital Mutilation. Something slightly different from what I work on now, but still loved the project and supporting the campaign.
The project was simply make a quilted patch for a vagina quilt - also known as Vulva Quilt - in order to help raise awareness of FGM, all started by Shoreditch Sisters - a young WI group based in London.
Below are a few pictures of my patch, which I think was about a 6inch square in size, and included a button for extra detail!
I have participated in many similar small projects, and admit I haven't done anything recently. I loved the short brief, which allows freedom of creativity to contribute towards a greater piece of work and share your skills and creativity with others and see how others have responded to the same task.
I have never seen the quilt fully finished or on display, but there is the picture below on the Shoreditch Sisters Facebook page from 2012?
