ROANOKE, Va. (AP) - Erin Hutchinson watched in horror from Virginia when Hurricane Sandy battered New Jersey and New York. Then the quilter sprang into action.
Hutchinson appealed to fellow quilters worldwide and colorful squares of cloth started to arrive at her home in Vesuvius, a Rockbridge County community north of Lexington.
By Christmas, Hutchinson had received more than 1,400 quilt squares sent from across the U.S., but also from as far away as Australia, Canada, New Zealand, South Africa and the United Kingdom.
The Rockbridge Pieceworkers Quilt Guild helped stitch the squares together in quilts that are about 72 by 84 inches, large enough to cover a double bed.
To date, The Roanoke Times says (http://bit.ly/YKOncF) Hutchinson has sent about 20 quilts to families affected by Sandy.
