Just one slab... Happy Canada Day!
Just one slab is the brainchild of Cheryl Arkison, co-author of Sunday Morning Quilts. Cheryl lives in Calgary and had the idea that all of us quilty people could sew some slab blocks. The blocks could then be made into quilts for those impacted by the TERRIBLE flooding that Albertans have experienced in the last few weeks. It is pretty bad. Cheryl has some pictures of the aftermath on her blog Dining Room Empire. Many people will be out of the homes for months and many homes have been completely destroyed. A quilt can give comfort to those displaced. A quilt will let them know that we are thinking about them. I cannot imagine. I know that stuff is just stuff but your home is your sanctuary. Sigh. So on this July 1, 2013, on Canada Day, I made slab blocks.
MMM. That was fun. The pink one was my first one. Then I got the hang of it. Made the yellow one and decided that two was not enough. I made a green and a blue one too.
Just one slab became four. It felt good. Maybe you can make some too?
