Comfort Quilts Needed

My friend Chela let me know that the quilt group in Uvalde, Texas, called Quilts of Grace is looking for “comfort quilts“.

Here is the scrappy “postage stamp quilt” (but with 3.5 inch scrap squares used instead of the traditional 1.5 to 2 inch squares) that I packaged up this morning to send to the group:

I was ambitious on trying to save money to postage and tried to fit it into a smaller flat rate padded envelope…

Many different quilting folder strategies did not work, alas, and I had to put it in the larger flat rate envelope (which I should have done from the start):

I hope this quilt will comfort someone impacted by the devastating school shooting massacre.

Besides donating money to the victims fund and trying to make wise choices of who I vote for in elections, I’ve felt helpless in the face of so much devastation. This feels like something I can do to perhaps ease a tiny bit of suffering for those impacted. Hey even if someone give this quilt to their dog as a dog bed quilt, it will be something useful!

If you are a quilter interested in participating, here is the information that Chela sent me:

  1. a number of quilting guilds here have what they call a group of members who make “community quilts” for people who need them for all kinds of reasons … donated fabric, batting, volunteers and so forth. Plus there is another organisation “give a kid a blanket” which over the years has been extended to PJs, winter clothing and so on.
