Community Quilts from the Quilters for Tanzania

I have quilts for the ladies in Ohio that are making baby quilts for Tanzania.  They are such a fun group and all of you have been fantastic with your support for them.  Thank you so much!!

Here you go Jo. We have been slowed down by making face masks, which is also important, and then I was also dealing with the inconvenience of a minor surgery. The first set of photos are donations from MaryAnne in Perkasee, Pa. She is a prolific quilter and has sent several donations.


We so appreciate her beautiful work and her generosity. The quilts included are from two separate donations. I had held off on including her first batch earlier, because some of our quilters still had her quilts they had been working on, and hadn’t brought them in when Covid 19 hit, and Ohio was in lock down. The first two are from her first gift.

She also included some beautiful panels which any child will love. We all fell in love with her fish panel, which made a delightful baby quilt.

 

The next two pictures…
were baby quilts made by tops also sent by MaryAnne. Her quilts are so creative and colorful, plus her
workmanship is awesome.

She also included backings for most of her quilt tops. Thank you so much MaryAnne for your beautiful work, we all appreciate your talent and generosity.

Thanks so much to Chelesta and the Tanzanian quilting ladies.  I’m so impressed with all you do.  I know it’s been hard been a change for everyone with covid.  I’m thrilled you’re still able to get quilts done!!

As always, if you want to support the Tanzania quilt project you can by sending baby sized tops to:

    They aim for 40″ x 40″ or so. Feel free to contact Celesta with any questions.

    Linda, we are primarily working on baby quilts to give to new mothers when they leave the hospital with their little one, after giving birth. According to Paula, our contact person in Zinga, Tanzania, she says she can use whatever we make and send. And yes, Jo is correct, we aim for 40 X 40 to 40 X 45. Thank you.
