Progress on Guatemala Bound

I know it's been a while since I posted anything about quilts for Guatemala.  But folks have been steadily working away.  Here are some of the recently completed quilts.  The Amish-style quilt above was contributed by Mary Arnold.  She and some folks from the Loose Threads Vancouver group pieced the quilt. I did the freehand quilting design using three different sizes of leaves.  This will make a child happy!

Chris R. of Vancouver donated some log cabin quilt blocks for the quilt below. I made additional blocks to make the top sufficient size.

The log cabin quilt above, Italian Courtyard, was pieced by Pat of Anchorage.  I made some of the blocks in the quilt below many years ago.  Pat put them together to make a cute crib quilt, Sundial.

I was inspired by friend Sally Seller's Pi Project, and became obsessed with applique letters and numbers.  I first made a quilt for my new granddaughter, Zara.

But then I couldn't stop.  I've become obsessed with all the possibilities when combining letters and numbers.  So here are some of the quilts I've made for Mayan Families.  Below are Addition, Pi No. 2, Small Letters, Multiplication, and Alphabet Mixer.

And finally, here's a quilt that Pat S. and I put together for Zara.
