Adorable Quilts from Pals at the Pelican Piecemakers Quilt Guild

I’m lucky to be a member of the Pelican Piecemakers Quilt Guild, a group of very talented quilters in New Smyrna Bearch, FL. They do a lot of great work for various charities that can use quilts. This winter several of the guild members made some adorable quilts for Quilts Beyond Borders to give to needy children and orphans in countries around the world. Here are some of those quilts from Jean Raulerson, Jeanne Ayers, Jeanne’ Cockrell, Fran Posick, Jan Schmidt and Beth Freese.

For a closer look, click on any of the photos.  To see who made which quilt, hover your cursor over the image.

Ladies, thank you all for these beautiful quilts!   I know the children who receive them will appreciate them for their warmth and because they are just so darned cute!  Some of them have already headed toward their final destinations, including a couple that have gone to children affected by HIV/AIDS at Camp Heartland and several that went to Salaam Cultural Museum for transport to Syrian refugee children in Jordan and Greece.  Others will be going with me to orphanages in Ethiopia in September.   Some other quilts by  Bettijean Meyer, Eleanor MacMillan, and Jeanne Ayers, (also members of the Pelican Piecemakers) were included in our June 4th blog and have been transported for inclusion in Baby Boxes for Syrian refugees.  And there will be a couple more from Carol Paxton coming up soon!

Great thanks, Pelican Piecemakers!  I look forward to seeing you all later in the year!

Regards,

Carla
