Let the rainbow hearts flow from our hearts to the families!
We will be making a whole quilt (or more) depending on how many blocks we get.
Bring your finished blocks to the July meeting. The work day to assemble the quilt(s) may be Sunday July 17 in the Mayer room at the Howe library. That may change, stay tuned.
The block sizes are
3.5″, 6.5″, 9.5″, 12.5″ edge to edge unfinished
Please make sure your blocks are this size!!!
If you want detailed instructions for heart blocks:
Use assorted fabrics in rainbow colors. We want bright & happy, no red hearts, no white
Rainbow stripe blocks are good as well as heart blocks
If you want to do a different block just be sure the size is the same, so we end up with 3×3, 6×6, 9×9 and 12×12 after the quilt is sewn together
The Orlando MQG is asking for quilts larger than 48 x 60 but no larger than twin — one for each survivor, and one for the families of each victim who perished. Any quilts that surpass that number will be given to first responders, and then distributed to the LGBT community in Orlando via organizations like The Center and Zebra Coalition.
