    Those are all wonderful!

    I like your term 'snuggle quilts' ever so much better than 'charity quilts'

    What are the approximate sizes of them?

    These quilts are beautiful. These are so much more than just a quick quilt. As chair of our guilds charity quilts I am always amazed at how creative quilters can be. Some do such amazing quilts. Yours are wonderful.

    I love your term of snuggle. It is sad that the term 'charity' has so many bad connotations. It's original meanin' is 'love'. Some how we have changed that. You are so smart ta try ta git a better soundin' term for what we do when we want ta help.
    Your quilts are amazin'! Each one is so different, ( & cute.) When did ya do all o' these?? Wow ya are so productive.

    These are not just quilts, but works of art.
    I don't think I could pick out a favourite, as there are reasons why I like each of them.

    Your kindness and generosity is going to brighten a dozen families lives during a difficult time.
    Could not have said it better!

    Bearisgrey I make them approximately 50 x 60 inches which I think is a good size.

    You are so sweet. I know that the kids will love these. My daughter was diagnosed with Crohns over a year ago. The one time she was in the hospital for over 2 weeks. She got a pillowcase(from the pillowcase challenge) and she loves it. They have people that donate crocheted throws and small quilts too. She keeps them all on her bed at all times. Now, she we can make her anything she wants and she prefers these to everything else. I think it's a wonderful program. I donated a bunch of pillowcases before and I have a few quilts started to donate also. They even gave small quilts to my other kids(which they did not have to do at all) and they sleep with them over their pillows every night. Even something small means so much to a child. After seeing what my daughter and other kids were going through...I see why they like them so much. It lights their day to get a gift like that when they are feeling so down or in so much pain. I stand up and applaud what you are doing.
    enjoy your life...it's the only one you have!!!
