To Boston with Love....


We are joining the Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild to honor the people of Boston with a tribute to peace and love.  When tragedies occur, quilters and crafters rally together and use creativity to comfort and heal those in need. There have been Quilts for Japan, Pillowcases for Newtown, and many other examples of the love and generosity of our community. Now as we watch the events in Boston unfold, again we are putting our hands together to do something for those affected. “To Boston With Love” is a collaborative effort of makers to bring peace and love from far and wide. What we’re planning is a public exhibition of flags strung into banners that will be displayed in Boston – hopefully by early June 2013. Details are still being ironed out, and given the mayhem it may be a couple of weeks before we finalize the exact location and date. In the meantime we need to get going on flag making!

Here is the link for the To Boston With Love collaboration with the Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild:

The link has all the instructions and even a tutorial!  If you have any questions please email Shannon Page.
All flags are due at the May 2013 meeting!
