Phoenix Quilts

When I was a little girl I lived in a very small community.  My family had lived there for years.  Everyone knew everyone...for good or ill...and we cared about each other.

One summer evening I noticed smoke on the horizon....a lot of smoke....and some licks of orange flame.  There was a large fire somewhere...some one's home was burning.

As a little girl this wrenched my heart.  The thought of someone loosing everything was devastating. 

That was a long time ago....but there are still people loosing everything to the ravage of fire.  To combat the horror of it Julie of Have Fun Quilting and her dear husband have started a not for profit organization to provide quilts to the victims. 

They are collecting quilts and other goods for the victims of the fires that ravage the southwestern United States every summer.  Their desire is to provide a quilt for each person effected. 

Won't you help?

I belong to a quilt group that does things like that. I wish Julie and her husband all the best. God bless them and everyone involved.
