Anna Maria Horner has set up Rainbow Around the Block to provide quilts to those who lost their homes in the floods last month in Tennessee. As she explains so well in her blog post, “Money can only replace money. But giving of our time and talents will replace much!” Visit the link for details and to see how you can participate.
If you have large graphic prints in your stash, you will be able to whip up some beautiful blocks very quickly. Simple is beautiful when you let the fabric do a lot of the work. Medallion squares, pinwheels, nine patch, whatever you contribute will be used. You have all summer to stitch up some love. But don’t wait too long to begin. If you need some more inspiration, visit the Flickr pool.
