Operation Wood Hollow

I was visiting Myra's blog She Taught Me to Love It and she was talking about Operation Wood Hollow.  So then I jumped over to Having Fun Quilting and Julie was/is calling for quilters to help her.    Julie lives in Utah and devastation from the wildfires are all around her.  What's a quilter to do when we see someone in need?!  We make quilts!  She is calling for 29 quilts for 29 homes that she knows have been destroyed from the fires.  Go on over to Julie's website for more information on how you can help.  If you leave her a comment, she will send you the address to send your quilts/supplies.

I cannot even imagine the feeling of loss, but I hope this little pink quilt will help a little girl feel safe and have hope that "there is nothing that is lost, that cannot be found, if sought." (words from one of Jane Austen's books).

Also, a quick peek at another celtic block (more about celtic block here)!  Ohhhh I'm gonna love it!  You know it would make a beautiful nautical theme with red, white, and blue...hmmmmm Oh the possibilities!  Have a super fun weekend.  Little Mama Hen

  2. I love that Celtic Block--and thanks so much for the link. I've been wanting to do one of those and that link makes it more doable than the book I have! Thanks again!

  5. Beautiful quilt, April! I'm so glad you've hopped on the Operation Wood Hollow bandwagon - did you see that Julie is now hoping to send quilts to all the fire-devastated areas? Her little vision is taking off! Whoop whoop!!

  7. My Mom and Dads house burnt down 13 years ago and it was horrible! I'm going over to her site. Just wanted to tell you that I love the colors in your quilt as pink is one of my favorites!
