Quilts for Ukraine. The news there is heartbreaking and I found this on Kiwiquilters facebook page and decided it was something I could do to make a tiny bit of difference in the world. Maybe you know someone who wants to join in? (sorry, I don't know how to make the black disappear).
Calling my friends worldwide: I will start a project, collecting blocks in 8 1/2"( seam allowance included), colors: blue/yellow ( Ukrainian flag), techniques: everything is allowed... I will sew and quilt one or more quilts ( depending on how many blocks I will receive), donate them to refugees ( children?) from Ukraine coming to Europe or whatever the future will lead me to. I am soooo absolutely devastated about the news that I want, no... I need to do something and the only thing I can do is quilt and ask for peace!

Thank you, let´s go Blue/Yellow!
Someone has said the postage is horrendous, but I made three blocks which fitted into a business style envelope and only cost NZ $3.70 to post.
The sunflower is the national flower and sunflower oil one of the main exports of Ukraine. I thought it may help someone smile. I hope to make more blocks too.
