A Virtual Patchwork Comfort Blanket

6 Conversations

The March 2020 Create Challenge asks, 'What does the world need?'

Our answer: A Virtual Patchwork Comfort Blanket.

In honour of h2g2.com's 42/2 = 21st birthday let's make the blanket together. Each segment can contain anything that is comforting:

  • A photograph or drawing
  • A video
  • A poem
  • A story
  • An anecdote
  • A recipe
  • A factual Entry
  • Etc, etc...

Here is the Virtual Patchwork Comfort Blanket so far:
