I'm really good at starting projects....not so good at finishing. Or, so it seems, from the looks of my UFO list. The blocks in this quilt have been lurking around in a drawer of my sewing closet for oh, around ten years, I would guess. They are sampler blocks, as you can see, made by me and several quilting friends from The Starlight Quilt Guild. I didn't know what I was saving them for till recently. You see, I am on a mission, along with several other gals from my church, to make 30 quilts to send to an orphanage in Rowanda called New Hope Homes. The dated six inch blocks made up a sweet quilt for a young child in Africa who has little to call his own. The sashing, borders and backing all came from my *stash* which is one of my goals with this project....to use what I have, when possible. This is the third quilt that is completely finished for the orphanage. I have at least six more in various stages. Stay tuned for more Quilts4Hope.
