This post is dedicated to everyone who helped with the “Quilts for Ukraine” effort. At the end of last week Eileen and I stopped by our drop spots and collected up the very tall stacks of quilts. Last Saturday we got together to pack them up for their long trip. They were each beautiful and special.
What fun it was to unfold each one! We decided to roll them up, sleeping bag style, so we could get as many as possible into each box.
Eileen used up her ribbon collection (striving to match the color 😊) to secure the rolls.
And in a few hours they were rolled
and ready for bagging and boxing:
On Tuesday Eileen’s husband and son loaded the truck, and we headed into Milwaukee to meet up with Judy and her team to add our treasures to their trailer-ful of quilts.
After comparing notes the total number of quilts donated was over 170! Thanks to Judy for spearheading this effort and all of her hard work! Eileen and I prayed for Judy and her crew to have safe travels to Chicago, and for the quilts to each reach the person the Lord knows most needs it.
Thank-you, thank-you, thank-you to all who participated. What a blessing to be able to be a small measure of help to many who are suffering so much.
