MQX needs YOU, and you, and you to make two blocks....
..... yes, just TWO blocks!
Want to make more than two? Please do...... they will be used to make quilts for our soldiers.
Last year in 2014 we collected over 4500 blocks for QOV and we ended up with very close to that same number in 2015. The end of 2015 will conclude our 2.5 year block drive. We will continue to collect blocks until the end of the year.
So what are the blocks for the rest of the year? You get to choose your favorite block from the entire past block drives! Seven different block patterns; choose your favorite and make them up in any shade or hue of America’s favorite colors of Red, White and Blue. All of the block patterns will be posted on the MQX website and in the Files section of the MQX Quilt Festivals Facebook page.
As in the past, please send your completed blocks to:
MQX Quilt Festivals, P.O. Box 490, Hampton Falls, NH 03844.
Looking forward to closing the 2015 MQX QOV Block Drive with a bang!
So what can YOU do to help? Make blocks!! Share information and patterns from the drive with your friends, family, sewing groups and guilds. The more people we can inform about this great effort equals more blocks for QOV quilts.
