    We are only just back from Bali where we visited the little girl we sponsor. Her name is Sepi and she was 10 yr the day before we saw her. You can tell by the smile on her face that she likes her quilt.

    I also bought some sarongs to use for borders for one of my quilts Im ready to finish.

    It was wonderful to see her smile so big. Usually the kids are really shy and dont smile a lot. the teachers wanted to hold it and loved the butterflies and the colour.

    That picture says it all, great quilt, lovely kid, and well done you for sponsoring her, I have visited Bali and got to speak with a few locals and I know how much they struggle to support their children, so this is fantastic that you are helping out :thumbup: :thumbup:

    What a great thing to do, Nelle - she looks so happy! Don't you just love it when you can make someone smile like that? The quilt looks like it suits her perfectly!

    What a little sweetie-pie, and her eyes just sparkle. I have to think that's because of that beautiful quilt you gave her. I'm sure she's feeling pretty special about now. :) The quilt is just wonderful!

    I love the bright colors in the quilt--very cheery. And they match the outfit she's wearing. Sepi is a beautiful little girl. I'm sure she'll enjoy this quilt for many years.
