27 - China Bound


Oh I can't wait for Nancy's (my bestest blog fan) to read about THIS quilt.  First, meet Barb (pictured in the middle).
Back in the 70's, when I was a teenager enjoying activities in the high school youth group, Barb was my leader.  For over 20 years Barb has been, and continues to, teaching in China.  I'm always wanting to "quilt" those people who've made a difference in my life.  So I got started on Barb's quilt and I guess I'd better get a move on because I just found out it looks like I'll be...
