{ Modern } Relief – Japan

Like so many others, I have been stunned by the devastation in Japan.  My older daughter was part of a ten-day exchange student program with Hikone, Japan when she was 14.  She has long loved all things Japanese and returned from the trip wanting to go back.  That hasn’t happened yet, but I know it will one day.

As a quilter, my first response to need in others is to make them a quilt.  With that in mind, I have joined the group at { Modern } Relief – Japan.  There are about 90 (!) quilters who will be making quilts and raffling off chances to win them.  For every $10 you donate to MercyCorps, you’ll get one ticket for the quilt raffle.  The official kick-off is April 4.  More details on this later.

I haven’t decided if I’ll make a new quilt or use one I have.  What do you think?  Have you seen a quilt here that would be good for the raffle?  Should I make one from one of my patterns?  Share your opinion and I’ll take it all into account as I work out which way to go.
