Quilts for Pulse

The Board has decided to support the Orlando Quilts for Pulse project. 

Regardless of your political or personal views, we hope that everyone will join in and make at least one block (but hopefully more!) to support this effort to send a quilt to each victim or their family.

The Guild has been signed up to make at least one quilt, but we are hoping that the outpouring is so great we will be able to send even more.  If you are not able to make a block, hopefully you will be willing to piece blocks together, do the quilting or the binding.

Basically it can be any block but the simple one the MQG shared goes together very quickly. Looking for 10-1/2" blocks in rainbow colors with low volume background.  Size of finished quilt in case you are very ambitious would be around 5x6 blocks to make a 50"x60" quilt.

Please bring at least one block to the June 29th meeting where we will coordinate the piecing effort.

The quilt(s) are due to Orlando September 15th so we have a bit of time but the sooner we get these completed, the better.
