Quilts from the Northeast Region

It’s a collaborative effort of love and talent. The creation of these 20 quilts, which have become soft, cheerful ambassadors for orphans and refugees around the world takes many hands.  From as far away as Australia and Florida and as close as CT, New Jersey, Maine and Massachusetts piecers, quilters, binders, fabric cutters and fabric donors have worked together to make these particular quilts, now destined for the Syrian refugees being assisted by The Saalam Cultural Museum. The Northeast QBB Region is a prolific and talented bunch! It is with great joy that I continue as Northeast Regional Coordinator from my home in Rhode Island.

Since many of the quilts are a collaborative effort, you can identify the makers by the picture # associated with the photo.
