Despite the horrific destruction, no lives have been lost. And people are rallying around the residents of Fort McMurray to support them. Part of this is a movement among quilters (mostly Canadian, but many international) to send quilt blocks to make quilts for the residents upon their return (Though some may never return. The devastation has been that complete).
If you would like to make some blocks, this is the information and this is the tutorial. I will be sending five blocks and quilty friends A and C have each made 6 blocks (we will send ours in one big package). Otherwise if you would consider donating to the Red Cross, please do. These people will need a lot of support. (Two babies were born at the evacuation centers- can you imagine??)
