~ there’s a lovely, lovely lady called Deb floating about the internet, and in real life, she makes the most beautiful quilts, mainly to give away.

If you’d like to read more, and donate, check out this post by Juliet, Treena-Marie, Cat and Laura, and Deb herself. Then get donating and spreading the word, okay? Okay.
