A Free quilt block pattern from us to you!
UPDATE JUNE 2020 –
What started as a creative way to connect while social distancing, this quilt block is now an avenue to raise funds for BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) families in need in our local neighborhood. This fund, organized by SEI, prioritizes households in our neighborhood in NE Portland who have been impacted negatively by COVID-19 and not receiving adequate government aid.
As a team, we’ve been encouraged by this project and the positive response we saw immediately! The warmth of home we’ve created at MD looks a bit different these days, but we’re thrilled to see it is still very much alive and well through projects like this.
We hope this free Take Heart quilt block pattern helps you know we are thinking about you and sends you a bit of warmth we all need. Both the process of quilting and knowing it will ultimately help the community certainly brings a comfort. We hope you feel it too!
Feel free to share the block with your friends and family. Together we can take heart knowing we will see each other on the other side of this.
Take heart. Take Action.
We’d love to receive a quilt block you make with this pattern! Your block will be put into a quilt to be raffled off to raise funds for Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Elementary School’s Family Stabilization Fund.
