Love is the Baltimore Modern Quilt Guild

I'm not going to talk about the tragedy that struck Orlando over the last week. It is all just too painful. What I am going to talk about are the amazing members of the Baltimore Modern Quilt Guild.

When the Orlando Modern Quilt Guild put out a call for heart blocks in a rainbow of colors I couldn't resist. I started to coordinate as many quilters as I could to get stitching. I sent a message to the Baltimore Modern Quilt Guild asking them to join me in making blocks for a quilt to send to Orlando. And wow, did they respond!
I sent the request on June 14th. By the evening of June 15th I had enough promised blocks to make an entire quilt. By the evening of June 16th I had enough promised blocks to make a second quilt. I've left the spreadsheet open for those so inspired and there is plenty of time to make a third, or fourth, before the deadline. I can't wait to see all blocks!

What block am I asking them to make? The 10" heart block by Cluck Cluck Sew. You can find a free tutorial for the block in a multitude of sizes at Cluck Cluck Sew.

Don't Call Me Betsy also has offered up a foundation in three sizes if paper piecing is more your speed.

Want to read more about the project? Check out the Orlando MQG's blog post.
