From Our Heart to Yours

We were so sad when we learned of the murders of 49 people at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida, on June 12, 2016.

The president of the Orlando Modern Quilt Guild asked for “heart” blocks so  that they could make quilts for the victims, their families, and the local emergency services personnel and police.

Our member, Ana, asked members through our Community page of the MQG website if members wanted to make a quilt we could send.

We were happy to turn our sadness into a quilt for the people of Orlando directly affected by this terrible tragedy. We made blocks and Ana assembled them.

Jennie, a member and longarm specialist at Virginia Longarm, quilted it with more hearts.

We recently sent it to the Orlando Modern Quilt Guild.

From our heart to yours,
