We've Been Busy Around Here

We've accomplished quite alot around here lately.  Six tops have been completed in the past few days.  There are just two more to finish before I leave for Guatemala in January.  The quilt above was done by the Vancouver group.  Those below are mine, with hand binding completed by several friends. I will have 8 quilts to deliver to the Santa Apolonia orphanage, bringing that total to 100.  Then, I'll be taking 6 quilts for the family of the student that I sponsor through Mayan Families.  I'm looking forward to seeing all the quilts on the beds at Santa Apolonia!  And I'm looking forward to seeing the beautiful Guatemalan people and their wonderful textiles!

Quilts Have Arrived at Santa Apolonia!

I just received word that the quilts arrived at the orphanage yesterday!  Whew!  I'm hoping that they are able to take some photos as the quilts are handed out to the kids.  I'll post as soon as I receive anything.  What a milestone!

Good News! Quilts have arrived in Guatemala City

I just received confirmation that the 78 quilts have been delivered to the warehouse in Guatemala City.  Yippeee!  I was beginning to think that the boxes weren't going to make it, but they are all accounted for.  With luck they will make it to the orphanage in Santa Apolonia in a few days.

I have 7 more quilts to take with me when I go to Guatemala in January.  That will make 100 to the orphanage!  Thanks again to all who contributed.
