    Who Do You Make Quilts For?

    I have made four baby quilts for my grandchildren. I made a quilt for my daughter and am currently working on a quilt for my husband. After that I plan to make a quilt for my other daughter, a quilt for my friend who will graduate from college at the age of 61. After that I'll make a quilt for each of my sisters (2).

    Most of my quilts are donation quilts to kids with cancer. I finally finished my quilt for myself, after 12 years, and have made a few for my granddaughter.

    I just make quilts that I want to make and then give them to whom ever I want, that would include family, or some who needs comfort, is having a baby, or a charitable donation.

    I make quilts for my husband, children, grandchildren, good friends, and for my 104 year old aunt and her friends.

    For my 3 daughters, 10 grandchildren and 1 Great Granddaughter, quilts, tablerunners, wallhangings, candle mats, and anything else they would like. I love going to their homes and seeing the things I have made. They take good care of them and are so appreciative. I also make things for my 2 sisters and I made my brother a wallhanging for his Den for Christmas. Whew... its a good thing Im retired!

    I've made them for family, hospice quilts, comfort quilts, nursing homes, babies and also some commision quilts. I enjoy making them and share them with others as my give back for the joy I find in making them.
