I should also say that I have never been political before. I am neither Democrat nor Republican, but this last election pushed me over the edge.
I did make one political protest quilt, Presidential Fabrications. I felt so good making it and it went to a good home. I had no intention of selling it, but someone fell in love with it and it is now proudly hanging in her home.
Sooooo, when I heard about this project started by artist, Diana Weymar, I knew I wanted to participate. She started embroidering Donald Trump's most outrageous quotes onto vintage fabric. Now it is a constantly growing textile protest immortalizing the president's words in stitching. It is called "Tiny Pricks Project" (a wonderful double entendre) and you can read all about it here, and at the Tiny Pricks Project website , and in this article in the New Yorker.
I didn't think that I had any vintage fabric and then I remembered a stash of old handkerchiefs tucked away in the back of a drawer. I had several to choose from and picked this one with crocheted lace. I had many false starts with the embroidering before I settled on using one strand of #5 perle cotton. I am not happy about the way you can see my thread carry-overs on the front and I think I will use a different thread on the next one. Yes, there will be another, a quote directly from his Twitter a couple of days ago. Stay tuned. I hope to have it done by next week.
If you share my political views, please participate. She hopes to have 2,020 by 2020.
I will be linking up with Off the Wall Friday.
