Donation Baby Quilts

Over the course of the summer and the past several months I have been helping the young women at church with a sewing project. For many of them it was their very first sewing project. But I decided that they could handle straight line sewing and put together baby quilts. I assembled the quilt blocks into coordinated little packets and then let each girl pick their packet and then design their own top. Most packets had extras so that they could have some freedom in what they designed.

In the end we had 40 quilts to donate to a local hospital and their neo-natal ICU. Here is what they all looked like piled on my table. The girls helped package them all up nice with ribbon and a tag.

A big thanks to the moms, friends, and Young Women leaders who helped with this project. And another thanks to all those who donated their fabric scraps. We really appreciate it!

Now they're off to be delivered.

P.S. You have until tonight to enter our giveaway...
