QuiltCon 2015: Pieced with Love

I love that the “modern quilting” movement is rich in the traditions of charity. Not only did QuiltCon 2015 prominently feature all the quilts from their charity quilt challenge, but they also choose to highlight an online charity bee with the exhibition Pieced with Love: The Quilts of do. Good Stitches.

From the Modern Quilt Guild: ” Fueled by social media and emerging technology, the legacy of compassion, generosity and good will lives through the time-honored tradition of making quilts for those in need. Rachel Hauser, of Stitched in Color is the founding force behind do. Good Stitches {a Charity Bee}. She and hundreds of generous souls participating in this online community give back by doing something they love: modern quilting. This exhibit showcases a small selection of the nearly 200 quilts do. Good Stitches donates annually to organizations both near and far.”
