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!
