We are so excited to have provided the 402 quilts pictured to the Afghan and Syrian Refugees that have settled in the Seattle area. We have continued to work with the Salaam Cultural Museum in Seattle who are providing housing, education, and household goods to the Refugees. They have put together a free store for families to come and pick up necessary items and our quilts. I had the opportunity to visit the store and the mothers were so grateful to get quilts for their children! At the end of their visit each child gets to pick out their own quilt.
I appreciate all the help and support from our quilters who share their time and talents in the making of these beautiful quilts. I know they are loved and appreciated by the children who receive them! If you would like to see who pieced or quilted them click on the picture. This is the second of two blogs to share these photos because we have so many beautiful photos!
