Two Quilts for a Children's Home in Johannesburg

I made two QAYG quilts for Little Island Quilting. She donated over 100 quilts to an orphanage in Mexico City and is now collecting quilted blocks and finished quilts for a children's home in Johannesburg. She has passed 100 quilts for this good cause but is still accepting contributions. Even if her efforts take a new direction, I am sure she will find a good use for these child size blankets.

They measure 50" x 62". A lot of the quilting was done by hand using perle cotton and large utility stitches. I am using fabric that I purchased when I lived in Zambia. Originally, my intent was to make whole cloth bedspreads but 20+ years have elapsed and it is time to get some use out of the box of fabric.
