As you may recall, in December Carole – From My Carolina Home put out a call for help asking for blocks for Victims of the Thomas Fire. I shared her post and worked up 16 blocks and sent them to her last week.
Carole received my blocks and 16 other envelopes !! It is exciting to know that quilters DO love to help when there is a big need.
I was reading through my email today and saw that AQS (American Quilting Society) is also trying to get the word out for assistance for the Ventura Modern Quilt Guild. There are lots of ways that you might be able to help too. Perhaps making blocks and sending them to Carole wasn’t something you were able to do, but you have a finished top of another pattern on a hanger, or have an excess of blocks from a different style? Without repeating the entire list, I will “redirect” you to the AQS post –http://www.aqsblog.com/help-the-thomas-fire-victims
Perhaps something on the AQS post will be just the right fit for you!
Today is a “scrap attack” day for me! I want to dig through 1 container of greens and get them “ready” for the next scrappy project that Carole has planned on her blog!
Stay warm and happy sewing. I am thankful every day for the sunshine, the warmth of my heaters and my ability to create! I think quilts are really a blessing in my life! What about in yours?
