Americana Minis for Argentina

Be Aware, Be Thankful
1. Aunt Denise who shares buddy passes!
2. Opportunity to visit another country
3. All who have taken my parents into their hearts and homes

This is a pre-post, so by now I should be in Buenos Aires, Argentina visiting my parents!!!

They are serving an LDS Mission and have been there since March of 2009.  They LOVE the area, people, and fellow missionaries.

I wanted to take a little something to give those who have been particularly welcoming and kind to my parents.  I made some mini quilts in Americana colors.




Two more still need to be bound and are not pictured.

They range in sizes from 15” square to 17” Square.  I think they turned out nicely and can’t wait to give them out with a hug!
