Our Regional Coordinator in Austin, Texas, Nancy Alderman, recently sent me pictures of some of the quilts that Charity Johnson will be taking with her to the Romaniv Orphanage in Ukraine.
These are just a few of the 86 quilts for the Romaniv Orphanage that have been put together by many different talented quilters from across the US, including Lisa Glenn, Tammy Simpson, Anya Baker, Margie Jones, Linda Fentriss, Kim Bell, Susan Bradley, James Hall, Eileen Thompson, and Margo Perkins, and members of the Sunshine Online Quilt Guild, the Blanco Quilters on the Square, and the Quilters of Saint James the Less. More quilts from these quilters have been featured on earlier posts over the last couple of months. To see them, enter the word “Ukraine” in the search field on this page.
The pictures below were taken at the Blanco Textile Studio, where the Blanco Quilters on the Square have been hard at work on many of the quilts that will be taken to Ukraine. The young woman pulling the quilt from the box in the first picture is Charity who is coordinating the trip to Ukraine. The second picture shows some of the Blanco Quilters. In the third picture is Nancy Alderman and Charity’s mother Ruth.
Ladies, great thanks to all of you for your beautiful work! I know the children who receive these quilts will love them, and will be warmed and comforted by them.
