When tragedy occurs……..

Quilters respond! Last weekend, in the small rural Wisconsin town of Lake Hallie, a group of Girl Scouts and moms were picking litter as a community service project when a pick-up truck left the road striking 5 in the group….3 girls were killed, the mom of one of the fatalities and 1 gal is hospitalized. The young man is in custody. In nearby Altoona, WI, the Stitch Supply Co. has organized to create quilts of love for the 4 families (although, I suspect, the response will enable them to create more than they anticipated!). You can read the details of this “call to help” here…… So, this morning, among other small tasks, I had the pleasure to create these sweet (unfinished) 5.5” blocks……IMG_1137 The pattern is an easy one and may be made in many sizes. Allison, the gal behind “Cluck Cluck Sew”, provides clearly written patterns/tutorials on her blog and this pattern is so perfect for this need.

    Such an awful tragedy–it must feel good to be able to help in some small way.
