Donation Quilt for Afgan Refugee

Welcomeblanket.org is a movement to provide immigrants with a welcoming blanket from artisans and textile craftsmen/women from across the US.  They sponsored a drive to provide welcome blankets for Afgan refugees and here is the one I made just before Christmas:

It’s a very simple quilt design and I think the quilting adds a nice texture:

I’m not sure why, but they want these quilts to only be 40 inches x 40 inches.  Seems more like a wall hanging size than a usable quilt, but I hope the Afgan refugee who moves here enjoys it and feels like he/she is welcome in the US!

    Lovely cause and lovely quilt! It’s so nice that some folks welcome refugees instead of demonizing them. It’s also nice to see you blogging again.

    We in the quilting community miss your posts! Beautiful as always. The requirement of 40 x 40 probably has something to do with storage/transport issues. Keep posting!

    Welcome back! I’ve missed your posts. You have such great ideas. My bucket list would include 3 days of instruction with you.
