I will be making a quick trip to Ethiopia to visit an orphanage and sponsored community members for a Canadian charity called Vulnerable Children. While there, I am visiting a young boy and his grandmother whom I sponsor. I want to take them a quilt as a gift but am uncertain about: colour (should it be bright or scrappy); pattern (smaller pieces in a scrappy quilt, larger pieces, a landscape quilt of our region); and batting (if any). They live within a few hours of Addis Ababa, so I assume the elevation is quite high. I leave in a month, so I do have some time to work on this project.
Any help would be appreciated.
