I'm so glad Beth has started this wonderful platform for charity quilters to get together - and I'd like to use it tonight to showcase an immediate need for quilts that has come up in the last few days...
Operation Wood Hollow
I'd like to let you know about a call for help I received this week. You may have heard about the wildfires in Colorado, but less well publicized have been the wildfires in Utah.
Julie of Having Fun Quilting lives in the area very near the wildfires and wants to give quilts to the families that have lost their homes as a result of the fire. You can read more about this ongoing situation here - she actually was evacuated yesterday because the fires were threatening her town, but today they got to return to their homes. The fire is only 15% contained, so it's still a continuing danger to the people that live there. Anyway, Julie's requesting help from the blogging community, in the form of finished quilts, quilt tops, blocks, fabric or cash - anything you can send to help out. If you leave a comment on her blog, she'll send you her address. I hope you'll be able to help her!
