A Cornucopia of Quilts & A Shout out to Fairfield

Before I share the beautiful quilts in this post, QBB would like to thank Fairfield World (http://www.fairfieldworld.com) for the gift of batting that will be used to make quilts for the children.  Here is a picture of Noreen Fling, QBB Regional Coordinator, and Mario from Fairfield.

Without further ado, here are quilts that our Regional Coordinator, Karen Matheson has sent for distribution to Ethiopia and Syria.  The first picture has quilts made by Karen; Donna Sciandra, quilted by Sandy Darlington; Sandy Morawski and Mary Gibbons.

Quilts to Ethiopia

The next 2 pictures are quilts going to Syrian refugee children that have been sent to the Salaam Cultural Museum for distribution.  The quilts are as follows:  two made by Marsha Johnson, and quilted by Fran Fink and Terri Desmond, and two by Susan Elliott.  The other picture are quilts made by Elaine Longley, Barbra Buckley, Sandy Morawski, and two by Prayers and Squares, Simsbury United Methodist Church, CT.

And finally, the following are pictures of quilts that were brought to us at the 2015 IQF, either as completed quilts or as tops that have been finished in the last few months.  Lisa Glenn, one of our Regional Coordinators, sent the quilts to the Salaam Cultural Museum to be given to babies and children in the Syrian Refugee camps in Lebanon, Jordan, Greece and Macedonia.

Thanks to all of our piecers and quilters.  These quilts are sure to bring joy and comfort to many children.
