A dear lady at church made quilts for every graduating senior for over 20 years. Back in 1998 and 2000 my own two children were blessed by that kindness. She has been in a nursing home a few years now - she's nearly 100! - and has been unable to continue this. When I started quilting - not quite a year ago - one of my goals was to take that task. Fortunately we worship with a small congregation and there are only 4 seniors this year - one girl and 3 boys.
These are summer quilts - no batting. The boy ones use sheets as backings. With those two savings the boy quilts cost just about $20 each. The girl's has on sale quilt store backing so came in around $40.
I can't wait to give these to these young people! Even if they don't know enough to appreciate them now I have been blessed in the making of them.
