Here are more photos from my area, though we were so lucky not to take a direct hit from the tornadoes.
Above is damage done to the chapel of our church.
Make quilts! The death toll in Alabama alone is up to 248 this morning, but I also heard there are more than 400 missing in Tuscaloosa still. Hundreds, maybe thousands, are homeless now. I so want to do something to help. But I can't drive a bulldozer to remove debris. And I can't build a house. So I will make quilts. Because that's what I CAN do!
I will somehow get these quilts to those who have lost their homes. And loved ones. And all their worldly belongings. One quilt at a time.
Want to help? If you have orphan blocks, ufo's, or (even better!) finished quilts you'd like to donate, leave a comment and I'll send you my mailing address. Maybe you have batting or backing fabric. Together we can make a difference and provide some comfort to those who have lost so much.
If you have a blog, please spread the word about the Tornado Quilts. Quilters always come through when needed, and I know they will now!
