Ready to Help
Quilters are the most sharing people I know. They are always ready to help, whether the sharing is a simple technique that is baffling us or an emergency situation that overwhelms us.
This past week, a tornado touched down and destroyed the homes of many in a community close by. The next day, the word went out that a local quilt shop was collecting quilts for the families. I know the response was immediate. Quilters care and are there, ready to help.
A small group of my quilting friends got together and quickly tied these quilts to add to those being collected and distributed. With them, we send our prayers and love, to comfort those whose lives were instantly changed in those few seconds.
Whether you are sending quilts to Japan or passing them out in your community, be proud that you are a caring and sharing quilter. I know that I am.
