The quilt tops from today, and from the last sew-in (an on-going project) will be quilted and donated to our community quilts mission of providing quilts to local pediatric wards in two hospitals, plus our annual quilt Bingo, and now our guild is going international, with 30 quilts traveling to the Black Lion's Children's Hospital in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia! I will be traveling to Ethiopia soon with my son Ryan's Pediatric Oncologist, Dr. Aziza Shad, and her Aslan Project Team. It's a dream to be able to make this happen, and I am so thankful to every guild member who worked on, quilted, or made the colorful quilts to brighten up the children's area of their dire hospital there.
PS Stay tuned for more details on the upcoming trip!
Photos from today's sew-in, and one suitcase (so far) filled with 21 quilts!
