#quiltsforpeace Update

This is from Lee, the President of Dallas Modern Quilt Guild: “When the Pulse nightclub shootings happened, the Orlando MQG helped our hearts to heal by asking us to make hearts in rainbow colors for them, DMQG answered that call by committing to 5 complete quilts, and I am proud to say we are looking at a minimum of 9 completed by our guild (we have an amazing group).

We had a celebration tonight before the meeting. We celebrated reaching our pillowcase donations goal of 150. Pat yourself on the back for a job well done.
