Quilts for Boston

The Boston Modern Quilt Guild is asking all modern quilters to come together and donate quilt blocks to help those affected by the recent bombings at the Boston marathon. This is a great opportunity to actually do something to help those hurt by this tragedy.  The members of the BMQG will make the blocks into quilts and distribute them.

Here's my completed block.  Now I just need to get it in the mail to Boston!

It's a fun block, that goes together quickly.  Except that I made a little mistake in trimming the excess fabric.  On one star  point I accidentally cut through the fabric on the front.  See that gray star point in the picture?  Oops!

So, fellow quilters, join me in doing a little something to provide some comfort to those who need it. And check out lots of beautiful blocks in the Flickr group.

  1. What a great thing to do. I am going to get busy this weekend and make one. I see you used one of my favorite patterns. Hurray for stars!
