First Quilts Bound for Guatemala!

Great news!  Four friends who are going to Guatemala various dates in January and February have volunteered to take the first batch of quilts to the orphanage!  Two quilts arrived in Guatemala last Saturday.  There will be 11 quilts in the first group to be delivered. It's becoming a reality!

In the meantime, two of my book group buddies have been binding quilts like crazy.  Here are those quilts that have been finished recently.  The first two are from Pat in Massachusetts.  They are such a cute eclectic mix of fabrics!

Pat's Quetzals

This Japanese Blocks top was made by Marta in Palm Desert.

My friend Pat from Alaska and I sewed these Chinese Coins strips together when she was visiting last year.  They didn't work in with the project we were working on.  But during Pat's last visit we used them for this quilt, Mosaic.

And, here are quite a few more block and lattice quilts.  This is a great way to use fat quarters or smaller pieces of yardage!
