Today is the day of the Eugene marathon. Following so closely after the Boston marathon, all those hit by that tragedy are in my thoughts. It is so senseless that events like this even occur. I think when bad things happen, many of us are left wondering what we can do to help. I was very pleased when I saw the Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild organizing To Boston with Love ~ a call for flag bunting that will fly in Boston this summer to bring support to their city.
Making these three little flags was very therapeutic and fun. I hope their bright colors and loving message help to heal a city so violently shaken.
There is still time to make your own flag. The instructions are here. If you don't want to ship to Canada, I believe Amy from During Quilt Time is also working on flag collecting.
