The number of homes that have been literally blown to smithereens breaks my heart and makes me cry still. Not to mention the hundreds of lives that were lost.
Families are in desperate need of comfort, and this is something quilters can help with. A Tuscaloosa-area quilter is coordinating a drive for children's and baby quilts.
Here is her plea and a link to the emerging blog. I'll be watching for delivery specifics, but in the meantime I've got some really fun Puss in Boots fabrics from who-knows-how-long-ago that needs to become a quilt or two! (p.s. - if you're a U.S. quilter, can you pass the world along on your own blog? Thanks, friends!)
I am setting up a quilt charity for Tuscaloosa and Jefferson County. In particular need are children's and baby quilts. Please pack in a child/medium size tote. Please include a small stuffed animal. Entire neighborhoods were wiped off the map. Hundreds of families and children are displaced. They have NOTHING. Thanks.
