The Quarantine Quilt in Houston

600+ Quilters quilting together to keep it together @ceciliakoppmann

At the beginning of the quarantine in Argentina, Cecilia Koppmann was inspired to begin creating a quilt made of blocks that would accompany her during isolation and keep at bay the feelings of uncertainty and fear. For 60 days in a row, she shared her project through social media, teaching how to make the blocks, how to join them and finish the quilt. Over 600 people from 26 countries joined her and made their own quilts. What’s more, everyone mailed her a little block house to make a Collective Quarantine Quilt.

From December 3 to 5, the quarantine quilt was virtually displayed at the Houston International Quilt Festival, the biggest one in the world.
