Boston Blocks: Assuaging Tragedy with Fabric

Leave a comment

Have you heard about the Modern Quilt Guild’s request for quilt blocks in response to the Boston Marathon bombing ? I thought they did a great job of requesting manageable quilt blocks, and some fabrics I’m using for a current project match their color preference.

Blocks should be 12½” on one side by the size of your choice on the other. The preferred colors are those of the Boston Marathon: blue, yellow, gray, and white. Click here for more info.

I made a few myself, later than most bloggers I think, hoping that even a small submission will be useful. Here are the blocks I am submitting:

I’m planning to mail my blocks this week to

Quilts for Boston
P. O. Box 79225
Belmont, MA 02479

You can also contact bostonmqg@gmail.com with questions. Submissions should be mailed by May 24, 2013.

UPDATE: Check out the completed quilt where one of my blocks ended up here.
