Today, I want to share about a huge effort that Carole from My Carolina Home has been organizing: the Carolina Hurricane Quilt Project. In Carole’s own words:
The Carolina Hurricane Quilt Project is well underway, collecting new and nearly new bed size quilts for the victims of Hurricane Florence and Michael on the North Carolina coast. Just to define the scope of our efforts, the latest reports are that over 4500 homes have been totally destroyed and more than 700,000 homes have sustained damage mainly by flooding. So, as you might guess, we need a lot of quilts.
If you have a quilt that you would like to donate or would consider creating one to donate, here are some key facts:
Personally, I will be mailing off my Precession Quilt for the project. It is only 54 x 72, which is not quite bed sized, but I hope it will still be meaningful for someone.
