My quilt is started but not finished.. It has applique elephants and butterflies. I appliqued the map of uganda in the middle of the quilt. I am done with the applique now I just need to put it together. I hope to have it done in 2 weeks.
Thanks for the update - and it sounds Wonderful! These kids do see Elephants and I'm sure they see butterflies too. That is just awesome!! Thank you so much. It is going to be amazing for these children! I do have you on the list!
Could we do this in Aus and send the quilts diectly to Uganda? Via a collection point here?
Well lets try the pictures again
Hi Jan I have 2 quilts done for the Uganda orphans project. How many have you gotten so far toward what you need? If needed I can make a couple more before May. I did not get any promises out of my quilt club this month but hope someone will offer to make one or may have made one to give me at the next meeting in March. I won't send these until I know. I used the elephant label that Meganne made in the middle block on both sides of the quilts. I cut 9 x 9 blocks & by time the quilts were washed they ended up 39 x 39. That size would be great for the smaller kids but thought maybe if I make a couple more I would make them 6 blocks wide & 8
long. Here are the pictures of both.
Wonderful- I missed them before
Hi Jan, This is such a wonderful endeavor! It shows how much love there is in the world!! GOD BLESS you and all who are participating!!
I now have a stack of 11 quilts ready to go! More on the way!
This little girl on the bed was found when she was removed from a burning hut. She had malaria also, but is now getting better. Won't it be nice when she has a special quilt. Love and hugs, Jan
Its so nice to see pics. Thanks. I'm hoping to get mine out to post office next week along with another project.
We still need about 18 more quilts.. anyone else willing to give it a try?
I am working on one, but it will be for a girl as it is purple and flowers.
Jan, I have material to make two quilts as soon as I am able to bend over the table to cut the squares.
I can't sit, stand or bend for any length of time but this is something I REALLY want to be part of, so I will aim to have them finished and posted by March 15 or before, if humanly possible.
Will contact you for address details, later some time, rest time now.
Hugs n roses, Meganne
Meganne, that is sooo sweet of you, but the postage is way too high from Australia to Colorado. I do have some funding to help some with it, though. You get well first, then we can talk about it. Are you anywhere near well enough to digitize the words "Jesus Loves Me" in their language? Andrea is going to send me the translation soon, and I'd love to have it done in the same font you used on the Made with Love patch. I should have it in a few days. I don't want to pull you out of bed, or off the couch, or up out of the recliner too soon. But, I do know you won't be away from digitizing very much longer! Big, but gentle, hugs to you, Meg, Jan
Jesus Loves Me in their language in the same font as you did the Made with Love patches? I won't have it for a few days, and I just thought I'd ask, as I know you won't be able to stay away from digitizing forever! You probably have ideas blooming in your head already! Hugs, gentle hugs, Jan and a huge thank you!
your head already! Hugs, gentle hugs, Jan
and a huge thank you!
Oops! I forgot to say pretty please?
Absolutely! My concentration isn't so good for designs, but text is quick and easy, just let me know when you have it.
As for blankets these should come in under one pound and I have Ray's support to do this. I showed him Andrea's photo's and read Patrick's thanks, out loud, choking through my emotions and saw my man wipe the tears from his eyes. We both love children.
Hugs n blessings, Meganne

This will be a life changing experience for the children
and it certainly has been an awesome experience for me.
Mine should be in the post next week Jan,
Thank You, Michelle!
