Quilts needed for Japan

Please, friends: if you haven't already, visit Janet. She has information on how we as quilters can help the relief effort in Japan.
I will be putting my Klosjes aside for a little bit and start making one. They need our quilts; new or used.
while searching for fabrics I came across this lonely top
and just knew her time had come to shine and bring comfort.
Now it is basted and I will start machine quilting it this afternoon.


  1. Thanks for directing me to Janet's blog, Valentina! I've been wanting to do something more than just donating to the Red Cross. Ok, I'm off to piece a quilt! All the best!

  2. Thank you Valentina, if we spread the word we can surely make a difference and bring a little warmth to those who need it.

  3. Thanks so much for pointing this out! I have been lookign out for somebody organising something for Japan. I will get something started and spread the word...

  4. Thanks Valentina for the information, I will get busy ... it is at least something we can do to give a little human comfort at such a time as this.
    best wishes to you my friend,
    Val xx Oxfordshire UK

My Patchwork Family Through Adoption

A Bit of Africa and China
Came knocking on our door
And in a home where there was longing
Now empty rooms no more

Like a Quilt of Many Colours
Our Family stitched together into One
God's Love and Grace for us Abundant
In the Miracle of our Sons
