Hi yall-I am dying to try a stack n whack quilt, and I would love to use Alexander Henry's Wranglers fabric. The problem is that I can't buy it locally, and I am hesitant to buy the 6-8 yards I think I need when I don't know it if is a good fabric…Continue

All my SNW blocks completed now at least:

Not much progress on the actual quilt though ;o)

Well all the 4 patch blocks are put together so now I am framing the larger ones and making stars for the smaller ones! Here is my progress so far:

I mentioned my idea of sharpies and coloring it in but she said no to that so I mentioned throwing in some pink and she liked that so I got this border print:

Maryam I would never guess this fabric for snw.  It is awesome!!  Thank you for sharing.  I have been out of pocket with puppies!!  Haven't sewn since they were born in July.  Gotta get my rear in gear though.  Anyone that is a member here and would like to get something going, just give me a yell.

Kinda quiet over here so I thought I would post some SNW fabric I bought this last weekend called Tattoo! I am going to make a quilt to give to my younger daughter with a set of fabric sharpies so she can color it in like a big poster lol I don't know how it will turn out but thought y'all might like to see it:

Here is a large block (18")

Here is a smaller block (8")

I have some 6" blocks cut out too but haven't had time to stitch any up yet. I'll post more later as it progresses.....xoxox

Gaile, that is so sad, especially if the baby is in a cloth diaper vs a disposable.  If you don't have clean water then the babies bottom is not getting 100% clean and some are allergic to wet wipes.  I know that all of them are doing the best they can under the circumstances. Those bad diaper rashes really hurt. Bless their hearts and bottoms!!

Big Orphanage only allows 2 diaper changes per day per baby!

Comment by Gaile Jenkins Northern BC on May 16, 2013 at 11:52am

When you are talking 100+ babies - disposables get too costly to allow proper amount of diaper changes.  The cost of disposable diaper price would be comparable to here, but the Pamper brand is not the same quality as here - they are much thinner.  Washing is done by hand - labour is cheap and when it is not the rainy season they dry very quickly - no dryers, the power is never reliable, we were out of power very often and could be for minutes, hours or days.  Some disposables have to be used when there is no water, but if the cost could be kept down with clot most of the time, then perhaps they would have more disposables to use when needed.  When we went to the big orphanage we would take about 9 cases (1,300 diapers) of disposables, containers of wet wipes and all sorts of rash creams and it doesn't last long.  Never changes so many dirty diapers!  So sad, you have to almost scrape their bottoms clean and I would be crying as their bottoms are so sore, but you would have to get them clean and just get the babies clean (treat sores and rashes from head to toe on some) before you could begin to feed or do anything else with them.  When we would bring in the supplies and get started the nannies (1 per about 10 babies) would all pitch in and help - they just need the supplies and direction.
