These were the two quilts I had to finish by November 23rd. Last year about this time I posted about a project which I volunteer for~Evan's Heart. I help a local group of girl scouts make quilts for the Neonatal Unit at Sutter Memorial Hospital in Sacramento. This is the project we've done this year~A Disappearing 9-patch. The requested size was a 19" square, mine is a bit bigger~24" x 28". I should have pics soon of the girls' quilts as well, they're finishing their bindings this weekend! The babies these quilts go to are so very small. And sometimes a quilt is all mom and dad have to take home~a quilt which held their baby for it's short life. This is why Evan's Heart came to be.
There was a request from the hospital this year for boy quilts; and though not for a baby, this will go to the Pediatrics Unit for a special boy. Though, we generally never hear from the recipients, the nurses let us know how important and appreciated these small gifts of love are to the families. A run through the washer and dryer will have these all comfy and ready to go.
Oh, and this. . .this is how Bethany felt about getting up to go school yesterday. . .Yes, our household is definitely ready for Thanksgiving Break.
In my next post, I'll share "some old stuff" her words not mine, a fabric rep left for HRQ this past week, which my wonderful boss Carmen said I could have.
