Après le Déluge

The next couple weeks will be very busy for those of us involved with Quilts Beyond Borders as we prepare to get 500 quilts into the air and headed toward Romania and Russia. We’ve been very blessed with contributions from many women (and some men and children!) across the United States, and some from other countries as well. Many of these generous people are participants in various quilting groups and challenges, especially the UU Quilters of Tarpon Springs, Sunshine Online Quilting Guild, Hands 2 Help Charity Challenge, Gold Canyon Quilters, and Northern Illinois Longarm Guild (NILAG). We’ve even received a large box of adorable quilts created by the children of the Glade Church in Glade Tennessee!

Since requesting quilts for upcoming trips to Russia, Romania, India and Ethiopia we’ve received such a wonderful flood of quilts that we will be able to send some quilts with a mission group that works with an orphanage in the mountains of Haiti, where it gets very cold at night! In fact, when we’d received a request for quilts for Russia, we thought we’d only be able to provide 25, but it turns out that we’ll be able to provide quilts for all 200 of the children in the orphanages that the Orphan Outreach group will be seeing!

We are so grateful to all the talented quilters who have helped us to accommodate the requests we received for quilts! I know the children who receive these beautiful quilts will cherish each and every one as they snuggle in their warmth!

Over the next several weeks I’ll be featuring pictures of many of the quilts that we have received from all of these generous quilters. In many cases they arrived to us without addresses, sometimes without last names or even first names! Some folks preferred to be anonymous donors. Many of the quilts didn’t arrive with any group designation, and some did, but as some days we received many quilts in many packages (my record was receiving 46 quilts in 2 days!) we may not always attribute the right quilt to the right person. So if we get anything incorrect, please feel free to send us a note or leave a comment, and we’ll be happy to post a correction.

These quilts come from the following talented ladies:

  • Mary Allenspach (NILAG)
  • Barbara Carlson (NILAG)
  • Becky Fox and Andrea Fox (Mother and Daugter)
  • Rebecca Goldner
  • Delleen Kompkoff
  • Susy McCall
  • Bev Parker
  • Linda Powell
  • Donna Sciandra
  • Nancy Spurgeon (NILAG)
  • Gold Canyon Quilters

As always, hover your cursor over the thumbnail to see the name of the file, which will tell you who the quiltmakers are.  If you click on the thumbnail, you will be able to see a larger view.

Thank you to all the ladies who made these lovely quilts!  These quilts will be going to Ethiopia, Russia, Romania, and Haiti.  The children will love them!  And thanks to all the other quilters who have send us quilts over the last two months!  Stay tuned!  You’ll be seeing more soon!
