    The Perfect Top for the Summer

    Click here for Merrick's blog post.

    "A few weeks ago, I spotted this top at Nordstrom. You probably know by now that I am completely and hopelessly obsessed with eyelet, so of course I loved it. I also realized it would be a pretty simple sewing project - and even easier, a quick refashion.

    With a simple Target tee and some eyelet fabric, I whipped this up the other day and I am in love with it. I originally planned to just do the peplum, but since the top needs to be a little boxier to make the peplum hang correctly, I ended up adding the eyelet panels on the side to add width and I am so glad I did because I think it makes the entire shirt. I also chose a V-neck tee because I like them best." - Merrick White of Merrick's Art

    Quilting Together for Orlando

    The Orlando Modern Quilt Guild is collecting quilts and blocks for the victims of the shooting at Pulse Nightclub in Orlando this past Sunday morning on June 12. All Modern Quilt Guilds around the world are invited to participate. The goal is to gather a minimum of 102 quilts - one for each survivor and one for the families of each victim who perished along with first responders, nurses, police officers, etc. 

    Rainbow hearts are the design theme and memebrs are asked to submit either finished quilts, which are strongly encouraged, or 10" blocks with at least one heart. Any quilts that surpass the 102 number will be given to first responders and then distributed to the LGBT community in Orlando.

    The MQG is asking for quilts larger than 48" x 60", but no larger than a twin. Blocks are due on Monday, August 15 and quilts are due on Thursday, September 15.
