Two years ago, Daughter had life-saving heart surgery. Since that time she has frequently expressed the desire to give back in some way. Recently, she and I have discussed various ideas and have finally landed on this one:
52 In 2015.
During 2015, Daughter and I plan to make 52 baby quilts. Some will be given to friends and family who are having babies. Some might be sold (Daughter sells quilts to help finance college). But, whatever is left, and it will probably be around 40, will be delivered to the children’s hospital where she had surgery. They can always use quilts there.
If you look at the top of this page you will see a new tab: 52 In 2015. Each finished quilt will be posted there so you can keep track, and we can, too, of our running total.
We did finish a few through the holidays and thought it no dishonor to get a head start.
So, this quilt makes 5 so far. It is just 144 3-1/2″ squares. Finishes at 36″.
Simple. Scrappy. Cheerful.
I like that in a quilt.
Somewhere there is a baby who will like it, too.
