How to show Orlando some quilty love

by Nicole

My stitching time has been in short supply these days, but I did manage to carve out a little time to make a few blocks for the #QuiltsforPulse charity quilt drive organized by the Orlando Modern Quilt Guild. You can find out more information on the OMQG website, but in brief, the OMQG is seeking quilt blocks and/or finished quilts to benefit the survivors of the Pulse tragedy and the families of the victims. You can also find out more information from the Modern Quilt Guild.


My guild, the Triangle Modern Quilt Guild, is chipping in and helping to make quilts to send to Orlando.

I made a few blocks using the heart block tutorial by Cluck Cluck Sew.


The tutorial is quick and easy.


I definitely see myself sewing a lot more of these blocks in the near future.


If you’re interested in helping out, there’s a Pinterest board for inspiration.


Let’s show Orlando some quilty love!

Margaret, it is amazing to see the quilting community pull together in times like these, isn’t it?

I am making a quilt for Orlando! The blocks are easy, quick and fun. I love your rainbow striped fabric; it is perfect for this quilt!

Your blocks look great. I plan to use the Cluck Cluck Sew pattern to make a quilt this weekend. Thanks for sharing!
