CNN hero nomination

Tonight on CNN's Anderson Cooper show, I saw that Anuradha Koirala, the woman who founded the group, has been nominated as a CNN hero. The news clip showed a girl beading a purse like the one I bought. Here's a link to a CNN article about Anuradha and her group:

And here is today's quilt, a detail of a larger mainly blue piece from a few years back. Today we had a few short stretches of blue sky interspersed with spurts of rain and scuttling clouds, so I thought a blue quilt would be appropriate.
