Quilts for Pulse Charity Drive
My name is Diana Mattoni and I am the hive mama for hive 3. I'm also an Orlando resident and part of the Orlando Modern Quilt Guild. As you know, on June 12th we experienced a horrible tragedy at the downtown nightclub Pulse and lost the lives of 49 people. In an effort to comfort the victims' families, the injured, the survivors, and anyone else directly affected by this atrocious hate crime, we are going to do what we do best -- make quilts.
If you would like to help, we are asking for heart quilt blocks so that we can make more than 100 quilts over the next 4 months. More information and a sign up form can be found on the national Modern Quilt Guild website. We will also be posting updates on the local Orlando MQG website. Feel free to contact me directly if you have any questions. We've already had such an outpouring of love and support within the quilting community and we can't thank you enough.
