So one of my local quilt guilds started this amazing effort to make bunting flags to send to Boston. You can read about it here. I do not meet with this guild but have felt their support via Instagram on my journey of learning how to quilt. I quickly whipped one up and luckily mailed it locally so it can make it to the VMQG meet on the 20th. I hope that one day in the future I can go to the guild meets but at the moment in life it is just too crazy with kids, building a house, etc. etc.
If you live in the states I am sure that you have enough time to make one and send it off. You can mail it to Amy details are here.
Anyways here is my bunting flag:
I paper pieced the heart. I used this pattern but enlarged it a bit. I outlined the heart in a 12w variegated pink Aurifil thread. I hadn’t used it in my machine before. I had to play with the tension a bit but all in all it worked well.
