12/12/12: Lisa Quintana and Pillowcases for Sandy Hook

Here is another wonderful quilt made for the 12/12/12 Project. This one was done by Lisa Quintana. I love how she used "twelve" in different languages. Please visit her blog to learn more about how she came up with her design. It's also not too late to join in the fun. This is a busy time of year so I know people need time to finish their quilts. Just send me images of your quilt when you are done. I don't plan to write the article until after the first of the year.

On a more serious note, as we try to come to terms with the tragedy of deaths in Sandy Hook, Becky at Quilter's Corner in New Milford, Connecticut,  is collecting pillowcases for the children at Sandy Hook School. She would like to have around 600. All People Quilt has some great free downloadable patterns. Please pass this message to any sewing friends. Pillowcases can be mailed to her at Quilters Corner, 312 Danbury Rd, New Milford, CT 06776.

On Saturday while at my local Dominick's, the discussion at the checkout was all about Sandy Hook. We decided (cashier, bagger and me) that we couldn't change what happened, but we could be kind to everyone we meet. Be kind today. Who knows it may just change someone's day.
