Phoenix Quilts

** If you are looking for the Indie Fat Quarter Giveaway you will find it here :)

Earlier this summer I posted about donating some quilts to Operation Wood Hollow.  Operation Wood Hollow was set up to provide a quilt for those families who lost their homes in the Wood Hollow fire.  Well, it was a tremendous success.  So much so, that Julie, the project's creator, expanded the project!!  It is now called Phoenix Quilts, Rising from the Ashes, and it's goal is to provide quilts to all families in the Western United States who have lost their homes in wildfires.

Today my donation is being featured on their blog.  Please, take a second and pop on over to Phoenix Quilts and see if you can help with this tremendous project.  So far they have had 300 quilts donated and while that does put a dent in the amount of families who have lost their homes this year to fires, there is still a ways to go.  I love to think of a sweet little boy having something new to snuggle with when he has lost most of everything else.

  3. Melissa - Thanks, again, for your donation to Phoenix Quilts! We actually have over 300 quilts now because I just got back 60 completed quilts from a longarm quilt guild in the Salt Lake/Ogden area that quilted and bound all these quilt tops for me that had been donated to Phoenix Quilts! So many generous people out there! Thank you for being one of them! Hugs! :)
