We are making a Quilt for Pulse

WE ARE making and collecting heart blocks to create a quilt to send to the Orlando MQG. They plan to give the quilts to the family and friends of the victims of the shooting at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando and to the survivors. They have a goal of 102 quilts.

Ana will assemble the quilt top, and Jennie will quilt it.

What you need to know:

–Any size heart is fine. We prefer a 10.5″ unfinished block to make it easier to assemble.

–Any number of blocks is fine. Make as many as you can or want.

–We prefer a light background — low volume, light gray, or white on white.

–The hearts should be in rainbow colors — prints or solids.

–Ana will make it work.Quilt for Pulse

Here is a heart block pattern you might want to use:

The Modern Quilt Guild also has a post with links to other heart blocks.
