Blocks for healing

The Montreal Modern Quilt Guild is asking people to send house blocks to make quilts for those affected by the recent tragedy at a Quebec City mosque. You can find out more about what they're looking for on the guild's blog.

The sentiment behind picking the house block is lovely:

We will be collecting house quilt blocks to make quilts that remind the recipients that this is their home, that they are an important part of this community and that we, their neighbours, are here to support and protect them.

I whipped up this block last night after quickly drafting a pattern. It's simple, but I think still cute and it conveys the idea of home.

Here are the cutting directions if you want to make your own block(s) to send.

And here's a second one in purple, almost all Tula except the Lizzy House for the warm glow coming out the window:
