Christine Piepmeier of Georgia had so much fin making her first quilt for Russia that she signed up to make this wonderful quilt for one of the Russian babies. A brief recap: Quilts Beyond Borders recently requested volunteers to help make quilts for Russian girls aging out of an orphanage. A few of these girls also have or are expecting a baby; therefore we needed quilts made for both the mother and child. Several of you quickly volunteered and we have been proudly parading your quilts as they arrive. I took a couple of additional photos for all of you to see the details of the top and the back. It’s a beautiful quilt with soft floral prints.
Margaret Pargin of Texas also sent in her completed top from the kit she received at last year’s International Quilt Festival. It’s a great, colorful top with large pink squares and several small ones to make up the sashing. Margaret also including backing fabric, which was a print of very cute jungle animals. Once it is completed this quilt will be sure to make any child happy.
Many thanks goes out to these wonderful ladies dedicated to the mission of QBB. Have a great weekend. – Jodi
