Oso Heirloom Quilt Project

After the massive mudslide in Oso, Washington occurred on March 22, 2014, The Quiltmaker's Shoppe, a local quilt shop in Arlington, wanted to do something to give back to the community so  the Oso Heirloom Quilt Project was launched. I used to live not far from Oso and worked in Arlington for many years. I am friends with a family that was affected by the upstream flooding as a result of the slide. I decided to sew up blocks to donate. This is my way of giving back to those who lost everything and to thank those who responded to help in the aftermath.
