This past January Quiltsy Team learned of a request for donations for the fire and mudslide victims in California. They were looking for people to make quilt blocks, quilt tops, pillowcases, or to send backing fabric, charm squares (5"squares of fabric from on fabric line collection), batting, etc. Well once we learned of this request, in typical Quiltsy fashion, we stepped up to the challenge. Team members signed up to make blocks and pillowcases, or to send backing fabric and charm squares to help with this relief effort. In the middle of February, our team sent a total of 60 Perkimon Valley blocks in blue and green colorways to go to the Ventura Modern Quilt Guild (that they will sew into quilts),along with 30 pillow cases, 4 charm packs and 5 quilt backings to help with this cause.
March 1st kicks off our annual March Quiltsy Cares where you will learn not only about the individuals who participated in the relief efforts, but you will also learn of other amazing team members who made and donated quilts to causes that were important to them. This year we have the entire month of March filled with donations by our team members, which is so heart warming So be sure to come back each day to read about another gift from the heart.
