Pretty Quilts from the Pelican Piecemakers

I belong to a quilt guild in New Smyrna Beach, FL, called the Pelican Piecemakers. Over the last year they’ve made some beautiful quilts for QBB to give to needy children.  Many of these quilts were made from tops pieced by the quilters.  Other tops were sent to us by a guild named No Strings Attached Guild, the 1st Methodist Church, or Saint James the Less Episcopal Church, and quilted by longarmers belonging to the Pelican Piecemakers Quilt guild.

Some of these quilts were provided to the Volusia County Homeless Students Program, others to needy Navajo children in Arizona.  Others were sent to children in Syrian Refugee Camps, and some to needy children in Israel. With the permission of the quilters, some were sold for fundraising at the International Quilt Festival in Houston.  Some of these quilts may be going with me to Ethiopia this fall.

Here they are:
