Handmade seller supports women in below!

A gift of fabric from Africa women inspired this seller to create these one of a kind quilts. These "rag quilts" or throws (the size for snuggling on the couch) are made with tie-dye from Sierra Leone, West Africa, as the top layer, and then two layers of warm, soft flannel. She makes pillows also from this tie-dye fabric. This was a way she could use her sewing talent and give back to these precious women as well!
The proceeds from the African items will go to support the Aberdeen Women's Clinic in Sierra Leone, West Africa. What a great idea!!!!

She also makes Christmas "rag quilts" or throws. They are approximately 40x60 with denim and cotton fabric on the top layer with beautiful old-world Santas, and then 2 layers of flannel. The one with the panel in the middle says, "Keep Christmas in your heart all the year through," and each Santa represents a month of the year. She has pillows in the old-world Santa fabric also available.

Handmade, pretty, and pratical - now that's my kind of gift!!!
