It's been an eventful couple of weeks. In an effort to make sure that this recap didn't end up as long as a George R R Martin novel, a few things were given their own posts.
The guild is participating in #quiltsforpulse. The Orlando Modern Quilt Guild put out a call for blocks or finished quilts. You can find that post and all of the information needed here. Bring blocks to the July meeting or send them to us by mid-July at the latest.
QuiltConEast registration is right around the corner. If you are thinking of going, don't hesitate. It sounds like there will be several members going this year and we even have a member who will be volunteering behind-the-scenes. Get the 411 on that right here. Member pre-registration starts June 25th.

A huge outpouring of support and love is flowing towards Orlando right now. After the horrific events of this past weekend, the Orlando Modern Quilt Guild put out a call for blocks and quilts celebrating love and hope. They are aiming for enough quilts for the survivors, the families of those lost and the first responders. If they surpass their goal, the remaining quilts will be shared within the community.

Quilters make out of love. It might be love of the recipient, the love of creating or the love of continuing a tradition. Pittsburgh has a huge heart, so we are asking the quilters of the 'Burgh to join us in contributing blocks to the guild's quilt for Orlando. Help us show them that they are loved.
- Make a heart. Three options are featured below.
- Use rainbow, bright happy colors
- Make a 12.5" block (12" finished) with a white (Kona) or low volume white background. The Cluck Cluck Sew block below is 10" and would just need additional sashing.
- If you are mailing them to us, please do so by mid-July.
