She wanted to make a quilted wallhanging for the 10-year celebration of the program. Through great collaboration and many prayers for inspiration, we came up with this darling banner-style quilt ~
It measures about 28" x 44" and that is Becky in the of the picture. Becky left for China early this morning and she will bind the quilt on her 27-28 hour journey to Shanghai and then she will spend 3 weeks over there helping the Chinese folks that are keeping the program going with all the things that need doing. I was so excited to be a part of this wonderful project that helps young kids be better people!! I wish I could share Becky's whole story with you but alas . . .

In her email Becky said:
Attached are some picture of our quilted banner . . . It turned out so great and everyone that has seen it has been so positive. Most can't believe that we could make such a beautiful thing by hand. I finished the sewing on the plane -- helped the fht go faster and I was able to watch some movies as I did it. We will be using it to help promote the project from May 1st thru May 10th! My time here has been busy and good so far . . . will be working tomorrow with the student on the web-site and we'll see how it all works out. It has beautiful here . . . lots of green trees and plants in Nanjing and the temperatures have been up in the 80's!!!
