to boston with love

I have never even been to Boston, but the events surrounding the bombing were upsetting to all of us.  When I saw flags of support popping up online, I wanted to make a contribution, especially after reading my friend Morgan's post yesterday.

The Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild is collecting flags that will hang in Boston.  I spent last night making a couple of flags to contribute.

I can't wait to see this project when it is all finished, just the thought of seeing support being sent from all over the world makes me emotional.  

If you would like to find out more information you can find it on the Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild's blog and you can see more flags in the To Boston with Love flickr group
