                                                           2015 Opportunity Quilt

With the help of 20 quilt guild members, the quilt has been sent out for quilting. The quilter has promised to have it back in January and Grace has volunteered to put on the binding.

Many thanks again for all of you who helped put the quilt together - you are all superstars. Special thanks to Betty Jane Krueger who reviewed all the directions, etc., in addition to helping Paula Neuer & me put the blocks & top together. I would be remiss if I did not thank Carol Crouse for helping select the fabrics during several road trips.

Quilts To Benefit Ozanam Troubled Teenagers

Seven twin-size charity quilts were delivered to Ozanam for their teenage residents on Tuesday December 11, 2012 by Charity Quilt Committee Grace Lighthizer and Connie Zwego. Five of these were begun in the Mystery Quilt workshop earlier this year with Theresa Ward and Sharon Lorfing using donated charity quilt fabrics. With Sharon’s guidance, we enlarged their original planned throw size to twin size for this purpose. One more Mystery/charity has been promised for future giving.

Since it first opened its doors in 1948, Ozanam has helped more than 6,000 children get their lives back on track. Located on a 96- acre campus in south Kansas City, Ozanam provides a wide array of therapeutic options and a dedicated staff of more than 150 professionals. Together, we can help children and their families begin to put their lives back together.” From http://www.ozanam.org/ Currently there are about 20 girls and 57 boys between the ages of 12 and 18 living long-term at Ozanam. When they are able to leave, they are allowed to take their quilt with them. Please consider making a twin size quilt for a troubled teen (especially suitable for boys) next year …. Cut & dedicate a few pieces of fabric to start one for this purpose soon .... and begin your 2013 UFO list with it!
