Giving Back

When my daughter spent some time in the hospital this summer she was given a wonderful quilt to snuggle with while she was there. I thought I should make two quilts to give back to the hospital since they had been so good to us. Now I can cross one of those off of my list thanks to my good friend Maggie.

She is constantly (and I mean constantly,) making quilts to donate to Project Linus. Usually she gives them to her mother who donates them to a chapter in Grand Rapids, Michigan. but when she came up to the island for a long weekend a couple of weeks ago she brought this little beauty for us to donate to our hospital.

How cool is that. The lady at the hospital gushed over it! She just went on and on about how beautiful the quilt was and how they are always running out of them. Thanks to Maggie there is one more little girl who will have something to snuggle with while she is stuck in the hospital.

Thank you Maggie. You are a fantastic friend!

Making donation quilts gives me great joy. Making a donaton quilt on behalf of someone I know and care about is even better!
