Brushfires in Australia

Our thoughts and prayers go out to our fellow Aussie bloggers and their family and friends at this horrible time! It's hard to even imagine the devastation in Victoria! Thank goodness I was reading Rachel's blog and she has posted about Tia who is accepting blocks to put together quilts for those who have lost everything. What you do is create a 12.5" block (stars preferred) and send it to Tia. She will assemble the quilt tops, do the quilting and send them to families in need. This seems like the prefect project to lend a hand to those so far away! Here is a link to view some of the blocks: http://www.flickr.com/groups/bushfirequiltproject/

I agree a lot of worry for those of us who follow Aussie quilters.
