Sisters of the Heart, Uganda
One of the benefits of being a quilter is you already have a bunch of sisters! Having missed the May Gallery at QuiltWorks I am playing catch up and was delighted to see the quilts at the last Woolie Gathering. Sisters of the Heart is a group of Ugandan women who use 100% African cotton with a few donated American Scraps. They were taught the joy of quilting by Janet Storton of Sisters and their quilts are sold to support a micro-loan program for women in the village. Women helping women, quilters helping quilters...can the world be any more beautiful?!
