The Welcome Project donates handmade blankets and quilts to new immigrants at the border. https://www.welcomeblanket.org In September I gathered with friends to make a blanket for the project.

Marcia’s grandparents were born in Italy. Soon, Sunhee and Kisup were born in Korea. Heather’s grandparents were born in Germany and Newfoundland.
We are very happy to welcome people at the border!

We chose our yarn and came up with a simple design.

Each of us went home and started working on our strips for the blanket

We met again in early November to sew the blanket strips together.

We sent the blanket to aspiring Americans at the border to say we WELCOME you!
