Quilts for China

A plea for charity quilts has been issued by a guild in St. George, who are collecting quilts for an orphanage for disabled girls in China. Girls in this orphanage sleep on a 2-foot wide board, and a St. George company is busy making foam mattresses for them. 400 quilts are needed to send with the gentleman when he goes to China at the end of July. My girls and I have pieced and tied five of these quilts in the past week. Actually, Chelsea has tied most of the quilts herself. Fabrics are from my stash and from a collection of Michael Miller samples - bright batik flannels and soft corduroys. These were fabrics sent from the manufacturer last year specifically to be used for charity quilts. Perfect!  We have several more quilt tops ready to go. Anyone who would like to come help tie quilts, feel free to drop in any time!
