More Quilts Sent to India

January 16, 2017

Finding an hour to sit at the sewing machine last summer was a challenge amid the house guests, gardens, grandchildren  and massive amounts of groceries. I hear our quilters say “I try to sew at least a little bit every day.” It’s not always easy. These pictures are a testimonial to  the dedication of the QBB quilters who work all year to “keep us in quilts.” The need is great, and ongoing. As the old saying goes, “Give a busy person the job.”

These quilts were also sent to Orphan Outreach in India, and were made by some of our more prolific volunteers; ladies who always seem to be able to find that extra hour, no matter what else is going on in their lives.  The quilters and piecers are as follows going from left to right:
