This past year we (Zvia Carol and I) have become the new chairpersons for our quilting group "The Accent Quilters" in Herzlia Israel, and have taken on the project started by our previous chairladies who, during their time collected many UFO's and Orphan blocks from us all. During Succoth (September) we invited the 8 Girls who are "At Risk" from their home to come and join us and help us to make them a personal quilt for themselves. At first they were very skeptical, and had no clue as to what we were trying to do. We had a couple of meeting were they chose some of the blocks that appealed to them, and we started the process of putting them all together. This was a great challenge for us too, as we have not really done such piecing before. but we all learned a great deal during this process. We invited the girls to come to the studio and see "Sadie" and to chose their own quilting design. below are the quilts we made, and some of the girls receiving their quilts.
They were overcome with delight and could not really show how they felt, this is a first for them that someone else has done something special just for them. We all had a very "Feel Good" experience.
and felt we had achieved something special for Special Girls.
