Pictures from Africa



I think I posted the picture of the quilt I made for Piecing Hope. This was a project organized by a church in New Hampshire for an orphanage in Africa.

These children have been orphaned due to the Aids epidemic. There were pictures and stories of the children. I chose the one I wanted and made her a quilt. Here are the pictures of her after she received it. We make many charity quilts and seldom hear anything about where they end up. But it sure is nice when we do.
