Quilting for Boston

I wanted to share two projects for quilters who would like to do something for Boston. Click on the links of these projects for more details and information.

To Boston with Love
The Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild is hosting a bunting project with the theme of 'love, hearts and peace.' There is a full tutorial on their blog for how to make the flags. The deadline to have these in Boston is May 31st.

Send bunting for To Boston with Love to:
Amy Friend
PO Box 774
West Newbury, MA 01985

Quilts for Boston
The Boston Modern Quilt Guild is asking for quilters to send quilt blocks that they will turn into quilts. They are also accepting donations for quilt backs and binding. They would like the blocks to measure 12 1/2" tall by the width of your choice and made in the colors Blue, Yellow, Grey and White. Deadline is May 24th.

Send blocks for Quilts for Boston to:
Quilts for Boston
P. O. Box 79225
Belmont, MA 02479

You can also make donations to The One Fund Boston, an organization that is accepting monetary donations for the victims.

If you are in the Portland, Oregon area you can bring flags and quilt squares to the next Portland Modern Quilt Guild meeting on May 16th.

Peace be with you,
