First Quilts Delivered in Guatemala!

Log Cabin Stars by the Loose Threads group in Vancouver WA

Good news!  The first 13 quilts were delivered to the orphanage last Saturday, February 12.  The 4 quilts shown here were part of the first delivery.  Thanks to Vivian, Sondra, Nancy and Luci for carrying the quilts down and making the extra effort to get to the orphanage.  It sounds like the actual delivery was a bit anticlimactic.  It was a festival day in the village and all but one or two folks were attending the festivities.  But, it's progress!  Thanks so much to everyone who has contributed their time and talent.

Vivian found this great article that gives a good history of the orphanage and the programs there.  Please take a minute to look at it.
