Just One Slab: Quilters Supporting Alberta

As we play lawn games and BBQ, celebrating all that is Canada this weekend, there are thousands of people in Southern Alberta who are still recovering from the devastating floods. This is a quick shout out to all of the quilters, whether you are Canadian, American, Alien - would you like to help?

Cheryl from Dining Room Empire, who lives in Calgary,  is organizing Just One Slab to help the victims of this terrible natural disaster

Maybe you can't spare the fabric or time or postage to send a whole quilt but maybe you can make just one block. And the more of you that can make and send just one block, the more quilts they'll be able to donate. Cheryl will put all the blocks together into quilts. With an army of local long armers lined up to donate their time they will get some beds and hearts covered in no time.

Please head over to Cheryl's Blog for more details and share this post too! The more that know, the more we can do.


  1. Thank you for publicizing the one-slab effort. It's on my to-do list (I see the blocks are due with Cheryl by 7/30)!

  2. I was at Traditional Pasttimes today and saw all of these blocks piling up! So incredible to see where all the stamps are from :) Cheryl is a smart lady and I'm very proud to help out.
