Let's Pile Them High!

In response to eQuilter Luana Rubin's plea to donate 5000 quilts in the next three months to the victims of Hurricane Sandy, our group has been moved to action.  We are making...and looking through our stashes of already made (or partially made) bed quilts.  We are also offering to ship other area quilt donations along with our own.

Not long ago, Sister in Cloth member Vivika DeNegre (AKA Quilting Arts editor) donated several collections of manufacturer samples to our group.  My The Day the Circus Came to Town is one of those (with light blue and yellow added from my stash).  I made it before Sandy was even a tropical storm...but I think it has found a home in our collection bound for NYC.

The plea from eQuilter...and the for bed sized quilts.  But I can't resist sending this crib sized one.  Somewhere there is a child who will be cheered and warmed by the Circus coming to town (instead of that darn storm).

If you live in our area and want to join us in sending your quilt (s) to Timeless Treasures, who has volunteered to warehouse the donations for eQuilter, contact one of the Sisters before Dec. 8, or comment on this blog.  We will coordinate packing and shipping.  And, don't forget to label your contribution!

Consider donating quilts or money to the effort:  details are on eQuilter's website at the bottom of the website, titled Hurricane Sandy.
