Newest Completions for Guatemala Bound

Here are the latest quilts completed for the Guatemala Bound project.  One hundred quilts have been finished for the kids at the Santa Apolonia orphanage.  Now we're moving on to make 40 quilts for the orphans sponsored by the Mayan Families group.  Mayan Families sponsors families in need in the Lake Atitlan area.  They provide sponsors for education, help in obtaining medical care and housing, installation of economical stoves, and  specialized services on a case-by-case basis.  Take a look at their website.

These next two quilts were made by Pat and her friends in Anchorage.

 I put this one together with center blocks that Pat sent to me.

My sister Linda in Palm Desert made this flower basket quilt.

Vancouver Work Day

The Vancouver group got together last Saturday for a workday. We completed one top for the Guatemala Bound project and had a great day visiting and eating good treats. After cleanup around 4pm, we ventured over to Portland to see the vendor mall at the Art and Soul symposium. There was a wonderful mix of supplies and finished items from the mixed media crowd. It was a great ending to a fun day! Thanks to all who contributed!
