A few days ago, Ms. Lilly Doggendorf (www.lillypad.tk) from the US and originally from Romania wrote me and sent in my email box many pictures of lovely quilts. I found out that she has established a non-profit organization to help needy children in Romania (Ortisoara, Timis). She wanted to share pictures of the quilts made by a few quilters in the USA especially for the kids who attend a free after-school program.
Then I found out more about the quilts. Nina Godfrey, one of the quilters, wrote me a short message:
“I felt that I could do something to help out with the skills that I have, so I decided to make quilts for the after-school kiddos in Ortisoara. Two of my friends agreed to help me and we managed to make enough for every child in the program. I think it is probably the best project I have ever taken on. It has been very satisfying, and also fun, to work on quilts that young children might like.”
Thank you all for your hard work and for bringing joy to those in need! I am sure the kids appreciate your effort and feel your love stitched in every quilt!
