Quilts for Pulse Charity Update

WOW! Thank you to everyone who was able to sign up to make blocks! There was such an overwhelming response, we will have enough blocks to send TWO completed quilts to the Orlando Modern Quilt Guild!!!

HEART BLOCK:

blocks by Tracy B. (@traylas) using the Cluck Cluck Sew tutorial

The block: Please use this tutorial from Cluck Cluck Sew for the 10-inch finished block or this 10-inch finished block that is paper pieced by Elizabeth Dackson (Update: the link to the paper pieced pattern has been updated).

The heart: Please use a solid, a modern tone-on-tone or a modern print fabric for the heart area in the color(s) you signed up for. The modern print fabric should read as the color you picked.

The white areas of the block: In the white areas, please use low volume fabric. As shown in the examples above, please keep the low volume fabric consistent in each block.

Low volume fabric examples:low volume

Some blocks we receive will be used on the back of each quilt. This is a good thing! We would like the quilt back to be as pretty as the front.

You can read more about the charity drive here on the MQG site and check out the Instagram hashtag: #quiltsforpulse.

The blocks will be due at the July meeting. If you will not be at the July meeting (Thursday, July 21, 2016), please drop your block(s) off at Rock Paper Scissors. If that does not work for you, you may also email njmqginfo at gmail dot com and we will coordinate.

  1. Hi,

    I was unable to bring my quilt block on Thursday. Mine is purple. Do you still need it?

    Can I mail or drop it off? Or do you need a different color?

    Thanks, Jeanine
