    Cool My Very First Mini

    Found this mini the other day that was made when I started quilting in '93. It was made specifically to fit my GGM's doll bed I inherited when I was a child. I knew one day I would be making a quilt just for it. It's 17 x 21 and was tied with navy yarn. It's a pinwheel with feedsacks in it also.

    The next 4 minis will be going to NICU for preemie blankets. A poem that is really hearttouching is sewn to the back of each quilt as well as a label with the quilter's 1st name and last name's initial and it's done through Blankie Depot. Hearts is 15x15. Medallian Poppies is 19x20. Crazy Patch is 24x24 and another Crazy Patch is 16x16.

    Thanks for looking!!

    Look at those nicely matched points in your first mini!! What a treat to have an heirloom bed for it.

    I always love your quilts and these are just so precious! What a wonderful idea to give a quilt to a premie infant. Nothing could wrap them in more love!
