Anne Sullivan Promotes Inclusion in “Games are for Everyone”

Games are for Everyone Quilt Blocks

Our own Anne Sullivan is passionate about everything she does, and that includes quilting and gaming. Next week, when thousands of game developers and game industry professionals descend on San Francisco for the Game Developer’s Conference (GDC), Anne will combine these passions by providing a stack of heart blocks for people to sign to show their support for the Games are for Everyone movement. Anne will collect the blocks after the show and turn them into a quilt (or quilts if there are enough blocks). They’ll be available for display as a show of group support and welcome to all gamers. You can read more about the Games are for Everyone movement on Anne’s Play-crafts post.

If you are interested in making hearts for an upcoming event, please let Anne know!

Laura Ryle, SBAMQG member, won the Judges’ Choice Award for her quilt “Improv in Orange,” which began its life in a Jacquie Gering workshop. Laura says that she likes the back as much as the front (we do, too).

Laura also displayed her Redwoods quilt. Can you see the sunlight shining down through the branches?
