    We live close, very close, to the tornado damage and I can assure you that quilts will be very appreciated. The only thing left to most homes is their slab foundation. These people have lost everything!! A warm quilt crafted in love with be a constant reminder that America cares besides bringing needed warmth. Quilt on!

    There was a post a few days ago about a large effort to make quilts. The request was for any size (I believe) folks are lined up down there to make tops and a group to do the quilting. I want to keep the subject current on the board so all will remember and the subject will appear if we post to it regularily

    I've been looking all over the place for the location of the original post and then there was another one that listed info from her guild in that area.
    I sure wished I had bookmarked it. Any help in finding it would send us all in the right direction.

    I could be a contact if you need someone to collect them. We live about 3 or 4 miles from the damaged area in Elmore County, 90 miles from the Tuscaloosa-Birmingham area. We have a great response from the people in the local area to meet the immediate needs but I haven't heard about many people sending blankets or quilts. Our church sewing ministry had five baby quilts finished so we took them up to the Disaster Relief Collection Center in Eclectic, Al. My grandson's bus driver was killed in the tornado so this is very personal to us. Thanks for thinking of the tornado victims.

    I am sending four that did not make it into the Military Barracks Quilt Project simply because we ran over/had more than enough. Can not remember who the quilts were from and pray that those board members who sent them to me will be just as blessed by the quilts going on to our tornado victims.

    Well, then, Jan, I'm going to send the two I made for YOUR effort to this one. I'm so embarassed..I just found them still in the pile of "to quilt" instead of the pile of "quilted" It's horrible losing things in my little sewing room. I'm so sorry but I will Label them with something to say they were intended for Afghanistan Military.

    :oops:

    Aw, you're sweet! Not to worry; I was delighted to have a few more than the count we needed, debated sending a last "light" box of quilts anyway, but rejected the idea when I kept realizing how hot it gets there so early in the year. Also Bert had been transferred into another Forward Operating Base and a new Capt. installed over the men who received the quilts. HE never responded to letters I sent, so I had no direction about how/if/whether to go on.

    I'm glad you are sending these to stateside crisis victims and know they will still serve the same "hug" promise that the Barracks Quilts were intended for.
