I just got the following e-mail from Ann Nichols in Iowa. It looks like a beautiful quilt, and I thought you’d like to know about it. It’s an interesting idea to fund-raise on eBay.
Ann Nichols displays the “Out of Africa” quilt which will be auctioned to raise funds to support a nurse at the Kaimosi Friends Mission Hospital in Kenya, Africa. The multi-colored fabric in the quilt is African fabric donated by Eden Grace, of Friends United Meeting (FUM) Field Staff serving in their Africa Ministries Office in Kisumu, Kenya.
The quilt, a mission project of United Society of Friends’ Women, was made by women from five Iowa Friends’ Meetings: Bangor Liberty, Hartland, Honey Creek-New Providence, LeGrand, and Marshalltown First Friends.
The “Out of Africa” quilt will be auctioned on eBay in mid-September. The ten-day auction will end September 26 with the auction proceeds donated to the Adopt-a-Nurse Program for Kaimosi Hospital.
To learn more about the quilt and see it on auction, go to ebay.com after September 16 and search for “African Fabric Houndstooth Quilt.”
