More Beautiful Quilts from Jeannie, Audrey, Sally, Barbara and the GC Quilters

As you may know, we’re currently pulling together some quilts to send with a group from Orphan Outreach (OO) which is going to Russia in July and will be working with orphanages that have between 150-200 children living in them. We’ve made great strides toward our goal, but we still need at least 57 quilts.

We also recently pulled together 25 quilts for OO to take to an orphanage in India next week.  Some of the quilts that will be headed to India came to us from longarm quilters Jeannie Rasmussen of Nebraska and Barbara Nilles of Washington.

The first six pictures below show quilts that were pieced by the GC Quilters of Gold Canyon, AZ, and quilted by Barbara.   Please click on the thumbnails to see them close-up.

The four quilts below were quilted by Jeannie.  The yellow, blue and green one was pieced by Sally Flatebo, and the pink, cranberry and beige one was pieced by Audrey Murphy, who has made dozens and dozens of tops for QBB over the years. The two quilts in the bottom row were pieced by a person or persons who did not provide their names.  If you recognize them, please let us know so we can give credit where credit is due.

Ladies, these quilts are all just beautiful!  Thank you so much for giving us the benefit of your talent and generosity! I know the children who receive them will cherish them!

Regards,

Carla

      Carol, I’m inspired too! There are such wonderful quilts coming in every day! it will take a while to get them all on the blog, but I’m going to do my best! Thank you and the Sunshine Online Quilt Guild for all you are doing for us!

    When do you need the quilts sent for the July trip?

    • quiltsbeyondborders Says:

      There are two trips planned for July, one to Romania and one to Russia. The deadline we have to receive the quilts in July 5th for both of them. That gives us a week to take care of any issues and get the quilts packed up and to the people who are traveling. Thanks for asking!
