Journeys


Rarely do I get to see where my donated quilts end up.

And now this quilt is in Uganda and belongs to a handsome little boy.

And now it belongs to a beautiful little girl in Ethiopia.

A member of the Sunshine Online Quilt Guild recently distributed quilts at an orphanage in Ethiopia. 





And then saw it on this soldier in Alycia's July 30, 2014 Quilts of Valor Quilt Show.  What a thrill to see the new owner! 




And finally, I participated in a  crazy quilt pansy themed round robin in 2010. 
There were 6 members in the group, each member sent around 6 crazy-pieced foundations and each member chose one to embellish. When all the blocks returned home the original block owner had five embellished blocks and was left with one of their own to embellish. 

I see on her blog post she has turned all her blocks into a bell pull all these years later.

Oh how thrilling that you got to see where all three quilts went! Looks like the recipients are very pleased. You should give yourself a big pat on the back! Job well done!
