To Boston with Love

We are making flags for Boston!

The Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild is collecting flags from guilds around the world.  It's a fun and easy project to do.  Make as many as you'd like and bring them to the meeting on May 11th or to the retreat on May 19th.  UPDATE: The deadline has been moved up.  We will need all flags at the meeting, May 11th.  Thank you.  : )

"The overall idea is to provide Boston with an uplifting experience from quilters and sewists around the globe." - Vancouver MQG

For complete instructions, inspiration and two patterns, go to the Vancouver MQG blog.

  • Size: 6"x8" with a 16" binding strip for ties
  • Colors: Uplifting bright colors (see recommended palette below)
  • Style: Modern
  • Theme: Love, Hearts, Peace

After you make your flag, please add it to the To Boston with Love flickr group or if you're on Instagram tag it #tobostonwithlove.

Nice idea Adrianne. Are you collecting these at the meeting?

If Adrianne or someone can collect and box them, I think we can get the bd to approve $ for the postage.

Yes, we're collecting them at the meeting and at the retreat.

That would be great if the guild will cover postage!

Berene from Vancouver MQG here. Thanks for participating in this project. We're so glad to have your guild join in. It's going to be really awesome when all the flags are hung together in Boston. We look forward to seeing your flags on Flickr & Instagram.
