The Orlando Modern Quilt Guild put out a call for local guilds to make blocks and quilts for the survivors and families of the horrible Pulse Nightclub shooting earlier this year. The response has been astounding – over 1,000 quilts! Here is one more to add to the mix.
The Group #OHCraft is a crafting community that includes people from Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana. Volunteers from the group made the blocks, Lorna put them together, and I quilted the finished project.
I used rainbow thread to do some straight line quilting, but that was looking too severe so I mixed it up with some flowers that have hearts in the middle. The flowers are all different colors, though in retrospect I wish I had used the rainbow thread.
The border is a Kaffe Fasset Shot Cotton in Moor which is teal and red woven together. It looks kind of purple one way, red another, teal the other.
Design choices aside, I put a lot of prayers into this quilt. It is a dark world, but I hope the community impacted can feel some love and caring from Ohio and it will help with their healing in some way.
