Awesome, awesome, awesome.

The rebuilding process can be looooong. Your quilt will serve as a wonderful mood booster in the months (years) to come.

I love the story behind this. It brought tears to my eyes. You are a true hero, in that, in the midst of all that devastation, you were still thinking of others. You were creating beauty, when all around you, you saw destruction. That quilt is gorgeous, and bright, and will forever be a treasure.

I got a book a book by Tonya Ricucci called Word Play Quilts.  It's based on that Liberated Quilting Technique that a woman called Gwen Marston pioneered (maybe?).  Tonya is on pinterest and has tons of pins for great ideas.  Her blog doesn't seem to be working anymore.  But once I learned the technique, it's easy!  And quite fun Smiley

What a wonderful thread full of threads: the threads that connect loved ones and strangers and of course the literal threads in those joyous quilts.

What cute quilts.  I especially love the pieced together houses.  Where did you find that great fabric with the awesome girlie skulls?
I'm glad to hear people are alright even if their homes were underwater, I was really lucky that my neighborhood didn't flood while the others all around us did.

Surprise Surprise on the girlie skulls.  W@lm@rt.  Fabric is so expenseive these days (along with everything else) that I've actually gone to the dark side  Embarrassed
I'm glad to hear that you didn't flood as well.  It's hard to see, isn't it?  Both hubby & I are feeling survivor guilt and just can't do enough to help the others who lost so much.  I no longer judge my feelings.  It is what it is  Roll Eyes
