Janet the Rogue Quilter is making a "Love Thy Neighbour" quilt, and it reminded me of the "Building Loving Neighbourhoods" block that I made last year. Back in March I donated this wonky house block to a collection organized by the Montreal Quilt Guild. They were making quilts to donate to the victims of the Quebec City shooting.
They recently posted on their blog that they received contributions from 3 continents, 5 different countries, all 10 Canadian provinces and 25 states! That's an amazing response!
From those donations they were able to make 50 quilts to donate to the mosque!!
You can read more about the quilts here and see the photos of the finished quilts here.
This is the quilt that my block ended up being a part of.... see it there near the centre of the quilt?
It's amazing how many different blocks they received from around the world. I am so inspired by their efforts and hope the symbolism is not lost on the recipients of these wonderful gifts of quilted love.
