More Quilts from St. James the Less

Over the years the quilting group of St. James the Less in Northfield, IL has made more than 120 quilts for Quilts Beyond Borders, and Sue Babbs who organizes the group, met me last month with 3 large bags and several boxes which had more than 40 quilts and 10 quilt tops that were all kitted up with backing, binding and labels so that I could send them immediately to longarmers!

I always love to receive the quilts from this group, as they’re made of brightly colored children’s fabrics with lots of fun patterns. These quilts are made by Sue, Anita, Meredith, Donna, Michelle, Mary, Jill, Susan, Angel, Nancy, Betsy, Sarah, and even one by the children who attend the church’s Summer Program! Hover your cursor over the thumbnails to see the names of the quilters.

Some of these lovely quilts have already been packed up to go to needy children in Uganda.  Others will be headed to an orphanage for disabled boys in Ukraine.  Still others will be headed to initiatives for Iraq, Syria, and Jordan which will take place later this year.

Great thanks to the wonderful quilters of St. James the Less, and the children of the Summer Program for these beautiful quilts!  I know the children who receive them will cherish these quilts, and greatly appreciate their warmth and cheerful fabrics!

Regards,

Carla
