Michelle at the Quilting Gallery is hosting a block and/or quilt drive for people affected by Hurricane Sandy.
Although there's not much I can do to help from Australia, I can contribute a quilt block or two. The blocks will be wonky log cabin and posting them to the US won't break the budget.
Here is a sample of the requested block.
A tutorial is supplied.
Here is how the blocks will be made up.
It's such a modest contribution - but combined with others it can become like a river of love to people who need it right now. It's more than a blanket for warmth - it lets them know the world out there really cares about them and what happens to them.
