    So cool, i just watched a show tonight on witness accounts of the earthquake and tsunami it was heartbreaking just seeing this and listening to the kids ask their parents if they will be ok. What your doing it going to give them so much hope and feel loved from the US thank you for what your doing!

    What a wonderful thing to do. I can't imagine quilting that many in one week. You are a special person.

    Well I didn't piece and quilt that many. I put tops that were donated on my long arm and quilted them. Still working on finishing them up.

    I just completed an adult one and it is mailed. The country of Japan needs everything and warmth to get over the shock. You can be so proud.
