Group Description

Our Mission:
Not everyone can be on the front lines of an effort like flood cleanup and rebuilding, but we believe that there is always a way to help. So many families lost their homes, cars, and all their belongings during the floods of May 2010 in Middle Tennessee. As they begin their rebuilding process, we hope to combine the efforts of generous quilters nationwide in order to make as many quilts as possible to distribute to families who are in need of new items for their homes. It is a simple mission, but its one that we hope will be far reaching and one that will give homemade comfort to as many people as possible.

How You Can Help:
Just like any good charitable effort it all starts with your very own block! In this case it starts with your quilt block! We are accepting unfinished 12.5” x 12.5” quilts blocks (12”x12” finished) preferably in a monochromatic color scheme (or two main harmonious colors, like red/orange, or blue/green etc.) in any patchwork style that you'd like. Please also keep in mind that just because we are asking for blocks that are relatively singular in color, that we still encourage all shades, including neutrals and murkier tones, i.e. it doesn't have to be just rainbow brights. There is no limit to how many blocks you can to send. With the help of some local Nashville volunteers, we will assemble your blocks to make as many quilts as possible. We will also accept donations of completed quilts in any size or style.

Details & Deadlines:
Since not too many people need the warmth of a quilt during the hot Tennessee summer, we have time on our side. But with that in mind we've set three submission deadlines for your blocks, so that we can begin the assembling process early and have it all wrapped up by the fall. You can submit to one or all block deadlines which are as follows:

July 1, 2010 - first block deadline
August 1, 2010 – second block deadline
September 1, 2010 – last block deadline
