quilts for boston

A block for Quilts for Boston using @nataliesabik HST - LC tutorial.

The Boston Modern Quilt Guild is organizing a project called Quilts for Boston. They are asking other MQGs and anyone else interested to make quilt blocks and send them to the guild so that they can make quilts for those affected by the recent bombings in Boston.

When I feel like there’s nothing I can do about a situation, I’m grateful to be able to put some creative efforts into a form of support.

I decided to try Natalie’s HST/LC blocks. It seemed fitting since Natalie is the incredibly warm person and friend who is organizing the whole project! They were fun blocks. I think I should have made my log cabin strips a little smaller (oops), but still cute!

I’m so sad that all of my sewing stuff is packed away while this is going on! Your block looks great and agree that there’s something about putting creative effort towards support efforts is healing for the soul.

I love the way you have yours arranged…looks like the LC is peeking out of an envelope. Can’t wait to try it out!
