I saw this on some blogs and wanted to be a part of it.
To Boston with Love is a collaborative effort of makers to bring peace and love from far and wide. What they're planning is a public exhibition of flags strung into banners that will be displayed at a prestigious Boston institution on the Memorial Day weekend.
This effort is sponsored by the Vancouver Modern Arts Quilt Guild.
I have a board on Pinterest that gives you all the information regarding dimensions of the flags, patterns, the address to mail the flags, etc. The flags must be received by May 21.
I made some "kisses and hugs" flags.
I can just imagine these little "x's and o's" flags flying in the wind with their colorful backs, and bringing joy to those who see them.
This is my little contribution to all those who were affected by the tragedy in the beautiful city of Boston.
