The Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild is organizing a public display of flags in the city of Boston to bring some comfort, support, joy and most of all Love to the city of Boston following the recent race day tragedy. You can click the link above, or the button on the right to get involved. They have clear instructions and tutorials.
Since it's all about love, I decided to make one for me and Rich, and one for each of our wonderful children. I've included their girlfriend/boyfriend too who were there to comfort and support them when I couldn't be.
Here are the flags that I made this afternoon (front and back views). I decided to design them big, bold and graphic and simple.
Me and Rich's:
Andrew and Sigourney's:
Hanna and Daniel's:
Here is my little contribution tied together. I hope they keep them together as a family holding hands. We are all runners and have been to many running events as spectators and athletes.
I hung it in my dwarf maple tree to see how it looked from a distance.
This was an easy, fun afternoon project. Sometimes its nice to be a little part in a big project. Hat's off to the Vancouver Guild for organizing this gift for Boston.
See you again soon! Happy Weekend!
