Tsunami Quilts

My guild, Hawaii Quilt Guild, is doing a collection for Tsunami victims from the March Earthquake in Japan.  It is called “Operation Friendship”.

“Project Friendship is a plan to aid the people displaced by the March 11, 2011 earthquake and tsunami in Tōhoku, Japan. The project is aimed at providing a small token of emotional support in the form of quilted wall hangings. Several thousand people are living in evacuation centers near their communities or in temporary housing across Japan. They’ve lost family members, personal possessions and homes. The tangible evidence of good will, in the form of quilted wall hangings, will help brighten the daily lives of these people”

These small quilts are 12” square. I have gotten one quilt done so far and 2 more tops.  Here is the completed one:

I hope it will brighten someone’s day!
