The Lynch Quilts Project


August 2014

Greetings All!

We are moving fast and furious with several exhibitions up at once. See below for additional information. Thanks to Rosemary Turretine, Julia Muney Moore and Lyndsey Lord for assisting with the installation of Quilt II, RedRum Summer 1919 at the Indianapolis Airport. We were there until 2 am Monday morning! These aren't the best photos, but I wanted to give you a preliminary look at things. Again, thanks to Trish Williams. She rocks as she hunkered down and worked on Quilt II to get the quilting completed. We'll hopefully hear her inspiring story as she continues to process the experience in the coming months.






Quilt IV, Theoretical Paradox (formerly called Rules, Declarations and Rights) is well on its way with the 433 blocks being pieced on a daily basis. Thanks to Denise Smith for the modifications. Here are preliminary photos of the strips in the making. Given the complexity of tracking the numbering this will be a solo act for a bit. But things are moving fast and a new high powered sewing machine is ripping through these pieces like there is no tomorrow. Took a bit to learn to control it, but now we are in the swing of things.




As we continue this journey, we must remember that we are often the light in the world. Given the grave horrors of war, disaster and basic violence in our own streets, each of us needs to reach within andfind a way to shine our light each and every day. Whether big or small, the world needs light shined on it many ways.

Again, thank you so much for your continued support as we move the process and effort forward. This work could not be done without you all.

With the utmost gratitude!
