#QuiltsforQC - update

What we thought would just be a small local project seems to be gaining strength quickly... it is fantastic to see so many people who want to help! Our goal is to make a quilt to be given to each of the 6 families who lost a loved one, and to each of the people injured in the attack. For full details on the project and what we need to accomplish that, please see the original post.

I have had a few people ask if they could include notes of support with their blocks... absolutely! If you wish to include a card or note of support for the recipients, we will pass along any we receive with the finished quilts. If you would like to reach out to the mosque to offer support directly, you can do so through their website, Centre Culturel Islamique de Quebec

For those of you who are local, you are welcome to drop completed blocks off in person at Atelier Fiber Arts during their business hours. We may also be planning a block-making session in the coming weeks; we will post details on that once we know. 

For those further afield who would like to contribute blocks, you can mail them to us at:

Montreal Modern Quilt Guild
c/o Atelier Fiber Arts
3993 rue Wellington
Verdun, Quebec, H4G 1V6

We will post updates here as things progress. If you have any questions, or would like to help out in some other way, please feel free to send us an email at: mtlmqg@gmail.com 

Whether you contribute a pile of blocks, a single block, or just help spread the word by sharing our post with your friends, we are very grateful for all of your help!
