6 Quilts for Boston.


Since I'm in Boston this week, I thought it was a good time to share some information about the Quilts for Boston relief effort being put on by Boston Modern Quilt Guild.  The goal is to make at least 50 quilts for those directly affected by the Boston Marathon bombings.  To do so, the BMQG is asking for help making quilt blocks in the color scheme of gray, white, blue, and yellow.

I pulled some fabrics from my stash and scrap bins to make my blocks.
I finished up two blocks this weekend, just in time to hand deliver them to Natalie this week!
This one has a little improv heart applique.
And this one is just random improv, although I do see a heart shape in it that was totally unplanned.

If you're interested in making blocks to help out, please check out the details here.  Blocks need to be shipped by May 24th.

There's also an effort being put on by the Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild called To Boston With Love, in which they are asking for flag buntings to be flown somewhere in Boston this summer.  I haven't made my flags just yet but I definitely plan to!  Details of that effort can be found here.  Flags need to be shipped by May 21st, and you can find the shipping information here.
I hope some of you can find the time to help out with these efforts!
