    Charity (Snuggle) Quilts made this year and ready to be delivered

    I try and make one snuggle quilt each month, I like snuggle better than charity as I hope that a child will snuggle under their quilt and keep warm.
    These will be delivered to the Childrens Ward of our big hospital and handed to children who have ongoing medical treatment and frequent trips to the hospital.
    I hope you like them
    Be patient with me there are a lot of photos

    1. Aeroplanes is a machine embroidered applique design
    2. Cuddly Critters is a machine embroidered applique design
    3. Cutie Bears is machine embroidered
    4. Farmyard Animals is appliqued
    5. Granny Squares just scrappy
    6. Monsters is a machine embroidered applique design

    OMG MiraB ... you are one incredible lady and a true blessing to that hospital and in particular to the recipients!
    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.

    I am awed and amazed at the work you do on these quilts! THIS is what a "cuddle" quilt should be!

    QuiltE said it all, I can't add anything to it.

    They are beautiful and I am sure they will give as much please and comfort to the children as they gave you in making. Each one shows love.

    They are all so pretty. My son would like the one with the planes.

    you are one talented and generous lady! those quilts will make any child proud to carry it around. i love your term 'snuggle' in stead of charity. i think i'll have to adopt that. thanks for sharing

    Those are just wonderful and so are you for all the time and thought you have put into these adorable quilts. I should think any of us would be glad to snuggle under any one of those.

    I am in agreement. Those are what snuggle quilts should be.

    I was thinking about asking everyone, what they do with all their quilts after they get done giving away to friends and family. Now you have given me the insperation to something like you do. Your work is lovely and the caring you have makes them even better. I am most fond of the cutie bears as I have girls and grand daughters. Thank you for sharing.♥
