Quilting Together for Orlando
The Orlando Modern Quilt Guild is collecting quilts and blocks for the victims of the shooting at Pulse Nightclub in Orlando this past Sunday morning on June 12. All Modern Quilt Guilds around the world are invited to participate. The goal is to gather a minimum of 102 quilts - one for each survivor and one for the families of each victim who perished along with first responders, nurses, police officers, etc.
Rainbow hearts are the design theme and memebrs are asked to submit either finished quilts, which are strongly encouraged, or 10" blocks with at least one heart. Any quilts that surpass the 102 number will be given to first responders and then distributed to the LGBT community in Orlando.
The MQG is asking for quilts larger than 48" x 60", but no larger than a twin. Blocks are due on Monday, August 15 and quilts are due on Thursday, September 15.
