Quilts for Pulse - Boston Effort

Hi BMQG'ers! At our last guild meeting we talked about how we could help the Orlando MQG and their Quilts for Pulse effort. As I announced at the meeting, we're going to team up with the Cambridge MQG for a sew-in during our regularly scheduled July meeting (July 16th) where we will sew together heart blocks into quilt tops at the Lexington Community Center (39 Marrett Rd, Lexington, MA). We'll be there all day, from 9am to 5pm, so come for the whole day or just for a few hours and help us out. Depending on how ambitious we are, we might even be able to get a few quilts quilted.

What to bring:

  • Heart blocks (some tutorials below) in a rainbow of colors
  • Sewing machine
  • Basic sewing supplies (rotary cutters, mats, irons, pins, thread, etc.)
We are also looking for donations of batting and fabric to help complete the quilts. Fabric Place Basement generously donated fabric for the backing of several quilts. Our biggest need at the moment is likely going to be batting, so if you have any lying around, we'd welcome the donation. 

Heart Blocks
The main block we're seeing folks make is the following 10" block (pictured above): http://cluckclucksew.com/2015/01/making-heart-blocks-in-multiple-sizes.html 

There's also a paper pieced version of that pattern on Craftsy by Elizabeth Dackson if you're a paper piecer. 

I (it's me, Jen here) designed this paper pieced block for folks to use for this effort. You can download it for free on Craftsy




If you do a search on Craftsy or online, you'll find a few additional heart tutorials out there. When making your blocks, please try to make them 10" finished or 10.5" unfinished so that we can easily assemble them.

The background should be a low-volume print or a solid white or cream/light gray with the hearts being a bright color that fits in the rainbow.

If you have any questions, please reach out to us. If you are unable to attend the July meeting but would like to provide blocks that you've sewn, please let us know and we can coordinate a hand off.
