Baby Quilts....

This is my first real quilt top......
It's 24" x 24"! It's for the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Brigham & Women's Hospital in Boston. When I went for the heirloom sewing course, the women there told me about this project. They made 200 little quilts for the preemie babies last year. They actually use about 50 a day! So the need is great. I liked making this little quilt and I still need to find out how to finish it. They are having an open sew on Sunday to work on more of these. I'll be there.

'Til next time, Love ya, Jean

How precious. Our Jonathan was in a NICU after his birth and surgery. We still have the teddy bear his surgeon gave him. It is a very treasured reminder of what he survived.

I am sure these families will greatly appreciate your gift of love.

Hi Jean. I've always loved quilts but don't like to sew:) You do lovely work.

Wanted to comment on the pavers in the previous post. Really like the mixed look. I've been searching for something to use that won't cost me a fortune or be too difficult to lay. Thanks for the great idea.

Darling little quilt Jean! I made my first baby quilt last year, they are really fun to make, the bigger quilts are much more work! Luckily I know quite a few gals with babies on the way so I can go back to baby quilts! What a great cause too!
