Each year, I look forward to participating in the Earth Science Women’s Network (ESWN) Science-a-Thon, a social media effort during Earth Science Week to help others see the life of a scientist beyond the laboratory and fieldwork. I created a blog post about my Science-a-Thon adventures in Maine back in 2017, and I was looking forward to participating this year while at sea on the JOIDES Resolution. Unfortunately, my research cruise has been postponed to a future date – but that didn’t stop me from sharing my updated challenge for the week – to create my next science quilt to support my Stitching Hope for the Louisiana Coast collection. Check out my series of tweets below to see the process I use for creating a quilt (at least this quilt!).
