Call for Charity Blocks: Quilts for CO & NM

From one of our members, Amanda:

With the recent flooding and destruction in Colorado and New Mexico, my goal is to bring warmth, love and kindness to those who may be feeling homeless, depressed, and worried about what their future brings. I’m looking for sewers to create quilt blocks to be put together into quilts for the people affected by the flooding. I’d also appreciate donations of supplies, such as fabric, batting, etc.

Block guidelines:
1. Quilt colors will be red, yellow, blue and white. These are the colors of the CO and NM state flags. Fabrics may be solid or print, as long as they are these colors.
2. I'd appreciate help from all skill levels. I'm a beginner sewer, so I encourage even the least experienced to give it a try! I found the Scrappy Trip Along to be a very simple, yet fun, block to do.
3. Blocks should be 12½" tall by whatever length you'd like. This means they may be 12½" by 6" or 12½" by 16" (Scrappy Trip Along becomes 12½" by 12½")
4. Please use quality quilting fabric and thread.

Please mail blocks by November 1st to:
Amanda McCormick
182 Camp Westwood Road
Greene, RI 02827
