Hi everyone! Welcome to Louisiana, as we say “Laissez les bons temp rouler”, (let the good times roll) I am Mary P., the new Gulf South Coordinator for QBB, serving Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama along with much help from my great friend and quilter, Linda L. We both live in the suburbs of Baton Rouge and not far from each other. Linda has been a long time quilter for QBB and introduced me a few years ago. We are both long arm quilters and devote much of our time to charity quilting. We are very excited for this opportunity to help QBB!
We were able to identify and partner with a a new local initiative in Louisiana – Brave Heart Children in Need. Brave Heart is a charity organization serving foster children throughout the State of Louisiana. Each year they help 1,000+ foster children who enter the system. Each child receives a backpack with incidental supplies along with a quilt. We were more than happy to help this giving organization. Our first 50 quilts have already been delivered. We hope to fulfill our goal of 500 quilts this year. Thank you to all who are helping to make this possible! As always, you can click on each image below to see it larger and to see the maker’s names.

Hi, I’m Dianne in Indiana, a quilter for QBB. I love all the variations… it’s like a challenge… 42 x 60…. and GO! Everyone has their favorite style, pattern, color, or just go nuts with scraps! And the best part, kids are NOT quilt police!
