    Baby Quilt for homeless

    I've had this fabric in my stash for some time with wishful thinking of having grandchildren of my own. Since I don't have grandchildren I made this quilt to give to a homeless shelter.

    It would not have occurred to me to put those fabrics together - but you did - it looks great - and I like it!

    This is meant as a compliment -

    it has that "it's okay to drag this quilt around and love it to shreds" look.

    I love your quilt and this fabric line.

    We used this fabric for a tumbler quilt https://www.quiltingboard.com/pictur...s-t276647.html
    And sewbizgirl posted her Irish Chain quilt on post 22 of the same thread.

    It's as sweet as can be. Absolutely love those fabrics together. The animals, the dots, the plaids--all play so happily together. Bet you feel good having made it for someone now who can benefit from it. I'm still waiting for grandchildren of my own, too. But I find joy in making donation quilts for kiddoes who belong to others .

    Your quilt is very pretty and so are the other two. It will be loved by a child.

    I saved things for potential grandchildren and said it was for my "hope chest". LOL Now I'm fortunate to have 3 lovely granddaughters!

    This is a precious quilt for a good cause.

    Better used than saved. Growing up, I embroidered many things as gifts for my beloved Grandma. She ooohhhed and aaaahed over every one and then said "This is so pretty that I'll have to put it away and you can have it back when I'm gone."

    The hurtful thing is that when my beloved Grandma passed, those items were in a drawer, just as pristine as the day they were gifted--and I got them back. How I would have loved to see them faded, worn and tattered.

    You made and donated something to people who have nothing. You shared a piece of yourself with them. We should all do the same. Thank you.
    Never argue with an idiot. They'll drag you down the their level and beat you with experience.

    Some child is going to love that quilt to death! I know I would have loved it when I was young.

    What a lovely idea to give your lovely quilt to brighten the life of a mother and child.

    Very pretty quilt and you have a perfect place to give it away. I think that is a great idea.

    Those fabrics and the pattern go so well together, and like someone else posted - it looks like a quilt that is meant to be used and loved, as I'm sure it will be. (I'm with you on the grandchildren thing - I make quilts for other people's ;o)
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    "Homeless" and "Baby" are two words that should not be in the same sentence.

    Adorable quilt! I'm waiting and hoping for a grandchild too! It may not happen but one can always dream.
