"It takes ages to finish a quilt you're not working on!"

Check this site: a quilt for Katrina's survivors.

I don't 'do' patchwork and quilting, but I certainly appreciate the work that goes into creating these works of art, and I have two small ones myself, done by dear friends just for me. An Australian quilter had the wonderful idea of creating a quilt to sell to raise funds for the American Red Cross, to help survivors of the Katrina hurricane. She invited well known patchwork artists to contribute a block each, which will be made up into one quilt and auctioned on eBay in the USA. If you click on this link, you will be able to see the blocks that have so far been submitted for this worthy project, as well as some extra ones that people can vote for as their favourite in that selection.
