Quilts For Boston

The Boston Modern Quilt Guild is organizing a Quilts For Boston Relief Effort in the aftermath of the Boston Marathon Bombings and has asked for volunteers to send modern quilt blocks to be used in the making of at least 50 quilts to be distributed to those who could benefit from a showing of love and support.  I am grateful for this opportunity to show my support and completed two quilt blocks to send on to Boston.

The quilt blocks should be made from any combination of blue, yellow, white and grey solids and prints to be cohesive with the signature colors of the Boston Marathon itself.

I picked out the prints I wanted to use and then ended up making two different blocks when I couldn't manage to fit all of my choices into one block.


I'm grateful for the opportunity to show some support to those affected by this tragedy and urge you to participate as well.  Finished quilt blocks should be sent to the BMQG by May 24th.  Please read more about it and find all pertinent instructions here.
