Bushfire Quilt Project

I'm so very happy to discover that a Group has been established on Flickr to organize the making of Comfort Quilts for the victims of Australia's terrible fires.

If you would like to help with this wonderful project, click on the photo or check out the Flickr site and see how you can contribute a block or two (or more!) to this meaningful cause. You can also add this Button to your blog to help bring awareness to the project throughout the world.

As I correspond with so many dear quilters from Australia, the past few days have left me feeling so helpless and saddened by the news of this terrible disaster. Besides having donated to the Australian Red Cross, I can now send some blocks that will be included in quilts to warm and comfort those who have lost so much.

Take care, dear friends, and know that you're in my thoughts.

It has been a terrible time here in Australia but it is heart warming to see how kind and thoughtful people are from all across the globe.
