A sweet project

I actually found out about the Quilt for Kids project from another blogger and I don't remember who to give credit to:

The project is sponsored by Downy and they have helped provide quilts for very sick children in hospitals.  They send  the (free)  fabric to make a small quilt and the quilter makes and returns the quilt within six weeks. 

I used to be a neonatal and pediatric nurse and as a young nurse, some of us enjoyed sewing doll clothes for the babies.  (back before premie clothes were so available for purchase)  The families loved them.

I have several people in my life who have passed away and I thought this would be a great way to 'remember' them.  I ordered my first kit today and will make it in honor of a recent friend who passed away.  I wanted to share this site with you just in case you are looking for a way to share your love of quilting.  Happy Quilting!

So glad to hear from you! I have really been out of the blogosphere and am trying to inch back in. Will definitely check out the site you mentioned.

This is such a great idea! I bet the baby who gets your quilt will love it, and his/her parents.

You are a sweet lady Penny!
