    On Monday, my supervisor & I went to Texas to deliver quilts to 2 nursing homes. This was boss' first time experience giving to a nursing home resident. He thoroughly enjoyed the feeling. Hope you enjoy looking. Thanks.

    Yes, these are the inmates' quilts. They really do a nice job. Thanks for all the compliments!!!

    It's hard to see the Warden in the 1st photo - he's in the back on the left - kinda blended into the background! ☺

    Thank you very much for sharing this with us all. I have gone up in "goosies bumps". Am i correct in seeing that all the nursing staff got a quilt and also the resident (patients) also.

    Who donates the material for the quilts to be made? You did a fantastic job in teaching them to quilt :thumbup:
