A little over a year ago, my barely 3 year old GD had to be airlifted to Peoria hospital for cranial surgery. Needless to say it was a scary time, but she is fine now.
Fast forward one year. Grandma (me) becomes obsessed with quilting - notices a cute quilt that she has. I looked on the back and it had a Project Linus label on it. I asked my DIL about it. My GD had gotten this while in the hospita - I had forgotten about it.
If you have ever contributed to Project Linus, listen to what her mommy said: "We were in the hospital and everything was white and scary. When they brought this quilt to us, it was like having a piece of home."
Thank you quilters for your work in this project. I hope to join you soon.
