The project grew and flags from all over the world were sent to encourage the people of Boston. Yesterday and today, the flags were installed to become a special event at Boston's Museum of Fine Arts, simply called, "To Boston With Love." You can keep an eye on Amy/During Quiet Time's blog posts and facebook to see photos.
Meanwhile, another effort has started - a tangible expression that victims of the recent Oklahoma tornadoes are being remembered: OKC Modern Quilters: Oklahoma Tornado Relief - Moore Love. The guild is accepting completed quilts of any size or style through June 30 and will see that they are delivered directly to those affected.
It's good to join in these efforts to encourage others when we can. The quilting community is a caring and generous group, and it's amazing what we can accomplish together. Faith of Fresh Lemons has obviously been thinking the same thing. As I was beginning this post, I happened upon hers on The Power of Community. She has taken the lovely step to start a page on her blog to keep a list of needs that could be met by people like us. Take a look, and consider sending some encouragement today.
