    I never can tell by the pictures, how big a quilt is. Could we put sizes in? I would not know how big to make one for the charity.

    Thanks for sharing! So simple, too. Our GS just went home after being in NICU for a little over 2 weeks. I'm also planning to make little quilts as a TY to the hospital--I've sent a couple already.

    Our local hospitals want 36 to 45" max rectangle/squares in all cotton (have to wash/dry at high heat for infection reasons).

    That said, the more colorful the better. The quilts are not used for the children until they leave the hospital. Before they leave, the quilts cover the NICU equipment so it isn't so depressing visiting the babies.

    Our local guild makes quite a few.

    Thanks for sharing this with everyone!
