Hi Everyone, Amy here.
As I’m sure many of you have seen, there has been a wonderful movement in the quilting community to blanket Orlando in love, and we would love to have our guild participate and send at least two completed quilts that are made as a group effort. Anything you want to make on your own is icing on the cake!
We are highly encouraged by the MQG and the Orlando MQG to send completed quilts, or at the least completed tops. I’ll be coordinating the contribution from our guild and I would prefer not to send lone blocks but to send either completed quilts or completed tops to limit the amount of work the Orlando guild has to do. If you will not be making a whole quilt top or completed quilt yourself we would love to have you contribute heart blocks to put together into the two tops. We have several sew days planned where we can work on these blocks together and get the tops pieced. If you cannot make it to sew days please send your completed blocks to the Intrepid Thread or give them to us at the July meeting. You can also arrange to drop them off at The Intrepid Thread but please arrange it with Julie first. In order to expedite getting these things pieced together please use the Cluck Cluck Sew 10″ heart block tutorial that the Orlando guild shared. If you are contributing single blocks please have them to us by the sew days noted below so that they may be incorporated into tops.
I would like to send a minimum of two completed group quilts that are a minimum of 60”x60” (which allows for the rainbow of R, O, Y, G, B, P to go in either direction) which means that we need a total of 72 heart blocks.
