Can you help?

Sandy Quilt Block Drive
Click HERE.
Quilters making blocks are being assigned to quilters willing to turn those blocks into quilts to create a bunch of quilts for the New Yorkers affected by Superstorm Sandy. 
 I love that saying "Many hands make light work".
These are my blocks that I sent out yesterday.
 They were really fun to make. You can find directions for the wonky log cabins
 if you click on this link.
Make some.  Feel good. Help others.  It doesn't take long.
And remember the postcards that I made for
The Quilt Festival Pet Project Fundraiser for Friends For Life and their no kill animal shelter?
(I loved making these postcards, which made it so hard to give them away.)
 They were hoping to receive 500 postcards to raise $10,000.  They received around 900.  They were constantly busy at the International Quilt Festival in Houston and with some monetary donations
they raised over $20,000.  Woo Hoo!
You can read all about it at Pokey's Ponderings.
Go Quilters!


  1. That sounds like a great way to help and easy to make, will take a look at the requirements, think I even have some logs that someone sent me from their stash, but they are prim, so need to see if that matters. Love your postcards and it is wonderful that they did so well.


  2. Cheryl,
    It is amazing how mini efforts mount up to big things. Sandy victims can use every bit of help from anyone who can help. Yay for $20,000 raised!
    By the way, the quilt in the magazine (previous post) looks even more smashing in person. You are so talented.


Thanks for stopping by. I'd love to hear from you.
