Quilt Blocks for Sandy Victims

Calling all quilters to help make quilt blocks for the victims of Sandy!

So heart wrenching to see all the loss as a result of Sandy's wrath.  I have been feeling totally helpless and wanting to find someone that was coordinating making quilts for the victims.   Hurray!   I have found just that person!  Erin at Vesuvius Mama Blog. 

Go visit her blog here 

Tell her SewFunQuilts sent you.  Then get out your fabrics and make some Disappearing Four Patch blocks to send to her.   Even though she's not asking for money for the backing fabrics, batting or might want to send her $5, $10 or whatever you want to send to help with the cost for those supplies.  Or maybe you've got some yardage you no longer want that could be used for backings. spread the word about this group effort.......and GO make some blocks.

Thanks for visiting.


  1. Thank you so much! I'm sure Erin will be grateful for the help.

  2. Thanks! I've already gotten some traffic from your post. :)

  3. Binky Patrol is also collecting quilts for the kids affected. There is an address on my blog

    with information and the address to send to. They will deliver them to New Jersey.

    You can find out about Binky Patrol here


  4. Thank you, Judy and Marilyn. You have given me two outlets! I feel so fortunate that we only lost power for 25 hours, with no other damage from the storm, I wanted to find a way to help others. Making disappearing 4-patches as we speak to send to Erin, and will check out Binky Patrol for the children's quilts.

    1. Thanks, Becki and others.

      Please keep sharing this blog post information to others.....everyday! We need lots of blocks for lots of quilts. There were over 1400 quilts sent to Japan for the Tsunami victims, so am sure we can do better for our own here in USA.

  5. I am working on some blocks. I plan to send her some thread and some fabric for backing. I just wish I lived close enough to help her put them together.
    great project'

    I live just below New Orleans, right in the middle of hurricane alley so I understand what they are going through.
