In 2013, our Guild contributed in the "To Boston With Love" exhibit at the Museum of Fine Arts Boston. This was a collaborative effort of makers to bring peace and love from far and wide to the city of Boston after the tragic bombing that occurred during the Boston Marathon in April 2013. The project was conceived by Berene Campbell of the Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild and Amy Friend of "During Quiet Time". The installation will be re-exhibited this year to honour the one year anniversary of the Boston Marathon tragedy. To read more about this exhibit, please click HERE.
