    Ok need your help ladies....
    I have taken a little gal from my neighborhood under my wing. She expressed a huge interest in learning how to make a quilt. She is 14 and in a program called “Young Women in Excellence”. In this program it teaches them to make goals and learn new skills. . She wants to learn how to sew and also learn about people who quilt and why they quilt. I thought this Board would be the perfect solution. If you would like to help me help her we have come up with something fun. If you had time would you send a 6 inch square of fabric or a couple if you can spare it and also write down on a piece of paper your name where your from and the reason or what got you started sewing and why you are still sewing. She is going to be keeping a scrapbook about her quilt as we build it. If you are interested please PM. She is so excited about this… Her name is Justeena.

    I would love to send some pieces of fabric for Justeena. What a great idea. I'm assuming any color will be okay?? If not, let me know any particulars.

    Oh my goodness that is wonderful what beautiful colors. Thank you so much! I can just imagine her face when she sees how wonderful you all are. I told her mom and she cried because they have no money and she was worried she was going to have to buy stuff for her. I said it was taken care of by some wonderful Angels. I'll post pictures.
