We are thrilled to announce that the hundreds of beautiful flags you have been making for the To Boston With Love project will be exhibited by The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston from May 23-June 16, 2013.

MFA is Boston Strong, Huntington Avenue Entrance

 

The Museum of Fine Arts will be holding a free Memorial Day Community Weekend from May 25-27. The “To Boston With Love” installation will be one of the featured exhibitions and our flags will be hanging in the light-filled Shapiro Family Courtyard. Read their full press release here.

The Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild would like to thank VMQG member Berene Campbell and Boston-area coordinator Amy Friend for their work in making this event come together. Our heartfelt thanks go out to everyone who has contributed to this project and sent in flags from near and far. It’s going to be an amazing display of love!

There’s still time to participate! See our original tutorial post for flag making information and our shipping info post so you can get your flags to Boston by the May 21st deadline.

VMQG members: Please bring your completed flags to our guild meeting on Monday, May 20th. Berene will be flying to Boston to deliver our flags in person!

    I’m from PMQG in Portland. This is such a wonderful project and the little banners were super fun to make. As it happens, I will be in Boston during the exhibition at the Museum of Fine Arts. I can hardly wait to see the display! Thanks for letting our guild participate.
