Quilt for Paradise and Local Migrant Camp

My friend from Paradise, Ca., was given blocks that were received from all over the world.  She put them together, I quilted them, attached the binding and mailed it to her to hand stitch.

And, I found one of the block makers who seemed happy to know where her block went.

Last Wednesday, we visited a local migrant camp for fellowship and Mass.

Yesterday, several of them received sacraments at our church.  Here are some photos of the party that followed.  I believe everyone from camp was there and, man, is the music FAST!  Fast as in you can only shuffle because it’s impossible to lift your feet much.

    I am always amazed at how much you can pack into your days! Quilting and volunteering and working, and then hiking…you must never sleep! I loved the story of the quilt blocks coming from people all over the world!
