    My grandson is a special needs child and I wanted to make some quilts for his classmates that ride the bus. Something small enough for them to have on their laps when they ride the bus so they will stay warm. In Michigan, we can have some sub-zero temps!

    Since i'm new to quilting, I recruited my sister and niece who are also new to quilting to help me so we could have these ready by the end of September. We each have a boy and girl quilt to do. I chose Lance and Emily. My grandson Kayden seems to be really attached to both of them.

    I had the teacher paint their hand and put the print on some fabric. It is the center piece of the quilt and I will embroider their name and the year on it.

    This quilt is for "Lance". He is a seriously impaired child who LOVES dogs and smiles everytime he see's Kayden.

    The second quilt (pink) is for Anaya, made by my niece Maryann. Anaya is a sweetie and this quilt is totally fitting of her personality.

    The third quilt is for Jauann and made by my sister Linda. He is a very inquisitive child and will love all the bright colors on this quilt.

    3 quilts down, 4 more to go! Thanks for looking!

    What a wonderful idea. Looks like you are off to a good start. Love the idea of the hand print with their name, date, etc. in it. Kudos to you and your family for starting this. Thank you for sharing.

    My daughter has spina bifida - she has received two quilts, much simpler than those you & your family have made. We love them very much, regardless. You're doing a lovely mission!

    What a sweetheart you all are for doing this for the kids. A great idea. The quilts are so fun looking. I love the idea of the handprint and putting their names on them.

    Thank you for doing this for them. They'll love all of you for this.

    That's so neat. U might want to put their names and school on a label so if they lose it hopefully they can be returned to them.

    They are so darling. I especially love the quilt with the hand print. My son may not be able to play with toys, but he sure enjoys his quilts. And they sure brighten up a hospital room when that is needed.

    Hospital stays we know all too well (50+ brain surgeries on my grand baby). He received a quilt when he was about 2 from Children's Hospital of MI volunteers. He will be 6 on Sept 10 and he still has the quilt and will sign for it.

    Quilts do indeed brighten up the long days for the kids!

    What a nice thing for you girls to do! The kids will love their quilts. Are you putting their names on their quilts so they don't get them mixed up? The quilts are very nice.
