To Boston with Love

I got my banners for Boston done!

Here's a little about the project from the VMQG site:
When tragedies occur, quilters and crafters rally together and use creativity to comfort and heal those in need. There have been Quilts for Japan, Pillowcases for Newtown, and many other examples of the love and generosity of our community. Now as we watch the events in Boston unfold, again we are putting our hands together to do something for those affected. “To Boston With Love” is a collaborative effort of makers to bring peace and love from far and wide. What we’re planning is a public exhibition of flags strung into banners that will be displayed in Boston in early June 2013
Quilt guilds and individuals around the world are participating and the deadline for submitting your banner is May 21.  There is a Flickr group and tutorials with patterns if you want to participate.  Check out the VMQG site for links and instructions.  http://vancouvermodernquiltguild.ca/blog/

I made two more to send off.
I'm not sure if I want to write something on the back or not.  What can you say to a city and nation that has this happen to them?
