I have just been stunned at the destruction and suffering in Japan. There are many wonderful Japanese quilters and I see many of them each year in Paducah proudly displaying their quilts in that amazing quilt show. There is so little we can do, but we can can send money. It doesn't have to be much. We Americans can make such an impact in their lives if we each give what we can afford to give, whether it be a few dollars or thousands of dollars. I just wanted to show you some of the beautiful quilts made by Japanese quilters. These photos were taken at the 2010 AQS Show, Paducah.
