Quilts for Québec

house blockCalling ALL quilters!

The Montreal + Vermont Modern Quilt Guilds are collecting house blocks to create quilts for those affected by this week’s tragic events in Québec City.

We hope these quilts will send comfort to recipients + support in their time of need.

nido will be a drop-off location for these blocks through February 11th when they will be sent up to Montreal to be made into quilts. Project information + patterns can be found here.

Let’s pull together to show love + support for our neighbors to the north.
