Stitchin' Mission Quilts to Jamaica

On the website is a photo of Stitchin' Mission #16 quilts on display at Lutheran Church of Hope, West Des Moines, Iowa. Here are the 60 quilts as they were prepared for packing into suitcases.  On February 6, these quilts will be delivered to Robin's Nest Orphanage (Montego Bay, Jamaica) and from there, any remaining quilts will be taken to children who live in the area's dump. 

Thank you to the 50-plus quilters who made quilts, and for one quilter's monetary donation to cover the fee for an extra suitcase of quilts that will travel with the missionaries from Hope.
