Blocks for mudslide victims















I saw a post yesterday about a shop in Washington state, The Quiltmaker's Shoppe, was asking for blocks to be made into quilts for those involved in the mudslide..victims, rescue workers, etc.  I know quilters are sending quilts but this is a much easier way for those of us not sending completed quilts to participate.  The shop owner is even limiting the number of blocks sent by each individual to 3!!  That's probably a good thing given the number of blocks sent in response to Kevin the Quilter's request.  So I got busy and made two..these are super easy to make just a tad larger and then trim to the perfect 9 1/2" block requested.  If you're interested, you can find all the info here.  Just need to get these in an envelope and get em mailed!

I really like the pops of color on the dark background, too. It's like light in the darkness. Thank you for the link to donate blocks.

Love the star blocks. We accept blocks for HeartStrings for that same reason. Not everyone who wants to participate can complete an entire quilt.
