Quilts for Quebec City

Our sister guild in Montreal, the Montreal Modern Quilt Guild, has put a call out for blocks to make quilts for the victims of the mosque shootings in Quebec City on January 29. In solidarity, we will be collecting House quilt blocks for the Montreal MQG. The hope is that the quilts are a reminder to the recipients that Canada is their home, that they are an important part of this community and that as neighbours, we’re here to support and protect them. Read more about this great initiative here and an update here.

Blocks are 12 1/2″ square. You may make an apartment building block instead of a house as some of the victims’ families live in rental housing. Remember, multiples of 12″ plus 1/2″ seam allowance. Please tag your blocks with the #QuiltsForQC hashtag.

Berene will be collecting blocks from members of our guild at the February 26 meeting. Please note the new location and time (2:45pm) for this meeting. If you’re going to QuitCon and unable to attend the February meeting, drop off points are being organized. Please DM Berene on Facebook or on Instagram for more info. Deadline is February 26.
