    Here is an Angel Quilt that I just finished hand quilting for our quilt guild. They furnished all the blocks, backing, batting and binding already cut. All I had to do was put it together. The pattern I used in the white blocks is a sleeping kitty but photos don't show it very well.




    See the kitty??

    That turned out so nice & soft & cuddly looking, I'm sure it will be well loved.

    Thanks!! But the sad part about making these quilts is knowing that they're going to the parents of a baby that didn't quite make it in this world. Sometimes the quilts are kept as a momento but usually the child is buried with it....

    That is so sad. My heart goes out to that family.

    You made a beautiful quilt and your thoughtfulness is bound to be a comfort to the parents.

    I first wondered why it was called an angel quilt if it had the cats on it and then when I read the rest of your post, I wanted to cry! How sad, but what a wonderful thing you are doing. I am sure the families are so appreciative that someone they possibly do not know gave them a warm quilt for their baby to be buried in.
