Gathering to Make Quilts for Boston

We all know quilters are amazing but I don't think any of us anticipated the incredible response we received to our call for blocks to make quilts for Boston.  Thank you to everyone who has contributed!!!  Our mailbox is literally overflowing with blocks from around the world.  Over 200 blocks have already arrived so it is definitely time to start turning them in to quilts!

A huge thank you to the fabulously awesome folks at gather here who invited us to a sew-in at their annex this weekend.  They hosted us in style and even pitched in to help with the sewing.  We love you guys!!!

In just a few hours we were able to assemble 4 quilt tops with several more close to completion.  It's so wonderful to see different blocks come together to make these stunning quilts.  Check out more gorgeous  blocks in our flickr group.

There's still time to participate.  You can send us your blocks until May 24th, details available on our quilts for Boston page.  If you're local, watch the upcoming events tab for many more opportunities to help with turning all these beautiful blocks in to quilts.
