OK, I know it's been awhile now since I went to India.  But I never finished posting my photos.  I have a few more to show, so I'll try to post those in the next week or so.
Khajuraho, to the south of Delhi, has a beautiful complex of 25 temples, including the Kandariya Mahadev Temple.  The towers are covered with elaborate carvings.  This complex was built about 900 - 1100 AD, before the similar-looking Ankor Wat in Cambodia.  The complex was abandoned by its Chandela rulers and was hidden by the jungles until it was "rediscovered" in 1838.

We were lucky to have a personalized tour of the older section of town.

Quilts for Mayan Families

Here are a few more quilts made for Mayan Families' orphan program.  The baby quilt below was pieced by Chris R. of Vancouver.

And Cherries Jubilee below was made by Pat S. of Anchorage.

Here's another by the Vancouver group.

Work on Guatemala Bound Quilts Continues

It's been awhile since I posted photos of finished quilts for Guatemala Bound.  That's not because folks haven't been working.  The wall where I take photos was being used for another purpose, and it took me awhile to clean it up enough to take photos again.  Also, I had to transfer all my organized photos to a different computer, and lost much of my organization in the process.  I still haven't recovered from that. 

Anyway, here are four of the quilts finished recently.  The top two are from the Vancouver group.

This quilt, Fire Bolt, was made by Uta Lenk, who is from Germany.

And this quilt was donated by Joan B. of Anchorage.  She bought it at a garage sale, and sent it on to be finished.

Thanks again to all for being generous with their time.
