Boston Modern Quilt Guild is asking quilters around the globe to send
quilt blocks using the colors of the marathon - blue, yellow, gray and
white - which will be turned into quilts. With more than 170 injured in
the bombings, many face a long journey of rehabilitation ahead while
struggling with the emotional element of this tragedy. The Boston MQG's hope is to provide comfort through quilts, and we are all familiar with the power of a quilt, right?
& Fabric has generously offered to cover the shipping costs to Boston. Please click here read the post on the Boston Modern Quilt Guild to learn about the requirements for each block.
The Boston Guild would like to receive everything by May 24th. This means our we need to ship the week of May 17th. Please contact Margaret Udell or Jessica Pierre'auguste to require about where to mail the blocks, they need to be in the mail to one of these ladies by May 14. Or bring them to the May monthly meeting.
Please comment here if you plan to make blocks so that we have an idea
of how many we are expecting.
Also, please consider adding photos to the flickr group created by the Boston MQG.
