Quilts, quilts, quilts…

Today I have two quilters to feature:

Quilter, Elizabeth Raach, from Austin, TX sends Quilts Beyond Borders a quilt every September. This is the fourth year to donate a quilt to the organization. She told me she has visited Uganda twice; therefore, she understands the need we as a volunteer organization are trying to fill. Elizabeth’s quilt is the lovely multi-colored hexes mixed with beautiful African-inspired prints. We are thankful for her dedication to QBB and look forward to receiving another quilt in the future.

Prolific longarmer Patti Obyc from Powell, OH has also sent us another beautiful round of quilts. Today we are featuring her lovely longarm work on tops made by Marsha A. Cribbs (patchwork with pink binding), DeDe Crawford (blue and cream), Sue Torre of the Willoughby Wallace Library Quilters, CT (pink and green floral large squares), Martha Miller (frogs), and Ginny Hurt (patchwork with blue trim).

We are thankful to both Elizabeth and Patti for their time and dedication to Quilts Beyond Borders. Have a lovely Thursday evening! – Jodi

    Just want to make sure that you really do welcome tops that have not yet been sandwiched or quilted. That would be great for me as I can do more tops than I can quilt. And your cause seems a good one so it would be an excellent match. If you confirm this, I’ll read all your info on sizes and other requirements, recipients, etc and get to work! Thanks. Are there any deadlines coming up?

      Hi, Linda. Thank you for your interest. We love it when people send us completed quilts, but we also welcome tops and are really happy to have longarmers who have volunteered to quilt them for us. We’ve given out more than 1000 quilt this year to Ethiopia, Cameroon, Burundi, Uganda, Haiti, Thailand, Costa Rica, Honduras, Guatemala and Russia. We’re currently trying to rebuild our inventory, and holding off on making any very near-in commitments until we’re comfortable that we can meet those commitments. We do have a trip planned to Ethiopia in 2013, and expect that we will work with other groups to deliver quilts to needy children in other countries. Therefore, we’d love to have people send us quilts and tops! Thank you!

      Regards, Carla
