It doesn't matter how good you are or what materials you use, but please help---beddding is needed desperately--some left with nothing but the clothing on their backs. I have posted on my journal all the info you need; this is info from the director of the International Quilt Festival. The only requirement is a desire to help!


Please note too--NO BABY QUILTS, as there are too many being sent--adult and child size is needed, as often they are being used as sleeping pads too.

Lalange- Thanks for posting this.  I made a quick quilt to send in.  I only had 2 nights to work on something b/c I am going out of town this weekend, but it is soft.  Here's a picture of what I did.  It was really easy and only took a few hours.  It is 10X10 squares (60X80 total) with flannel backing.
