I finally made it to the Pilgrim Roy Quilt Exhibit at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. It was quite exciting to see the quilts exhibited in the Museum. There are an amazing number of quilts on display and they are all amazing to see. I took quite a few photos and am sharing some of them here. But, you must try to go and see these quilts, and quickly because the exhibit is closing on July 27.
After soaking in all of the quilts I also took the time to wander over to see some of the Art of America, Contemporary Art and European Art.
I was finally able to make it to a Boston Modern Quilt Guild meeting and was pleased to discover that they were still looking for help with the Quilts for Boston project. Alice gave me a bag which I thought was a top to quilt, but I discovered a collection of blocks that needed to be pieced. I had great fun arranging all of the blocks, including a strip of tumbler blocks, some very modern blocks and also traditional star blocks. I really enjoyed having the opportunity to put this quilt together which will go to someone who was directly affected by the Boston Marathon Bombing or I think it may also go to someone who has helped in the healing process. I could really feel all of the love that went into making all of the blocks in this quilt.
Here are some of the blocks that I made for Boston Modern Quilt Guild’s effort to make quilts for people who’s lives have been disrupted by the Boston Marathon bombings. If you would like to help please send your blocks to the guild by May 24.
It really is therapeutic to spend time making these blocks.
