Hurricane Sandy Quilt Relief Drive

eQuilter is coordinating a quilt relief effort for the victims of Hurricane Sandy.  I would like to send some twin size quilts to them from Quilts from the Bluffs.  If anyone would like to help with this or has ideas on how we can get some quilts together for them, please comment or contact me at qftbluffs@gmail.com.





A blurb from the eQuilter Quilt Relief site:

It has been my experience with this type of disaster, that bed-sized quilts are what is most needed.

We will accept lap-sized quilts and crib quilts, but we really encourage you to send at least twin or full sized quilts for those who have lost everything. We want to keep these people WARM for the winter, so if you can send it soon that is best, but we will continue this project for many months.

We will not be accepting afghans, pillowcases, or other non-quilt items. We want to stay focused on our goal of collecting and distributing 5000 quilts.




Let's get to quilting!!
