Default Micro-preemie quilt number 7 for April

Hi everyone,
Made this today! Took me two hours to make this, it's 18x22 Inches. It's for a micro-preemie in the hospital. Micro-preemie's are a class of pre-mature babies that don't usually survive. It's sad, but hey someone needs to make them blankets too! Plus the parents appreciate it! Anyway, here's the quilt!

Alot of them do survive and thrive. My son was a micro preemie born at 28 weeks. His lowest recorded weight was 1 pound 10 oz. He plays a bunch of sports and is a straight A student. I STILL have the knitted hat that was made for him in the NICU. It is in his memory box with a few other precious items. It was so appreciated. Having a micro preemie is extremely difficult and we (parents) appreciate the hand made gifts for the babies.

That is wonderful and so thoughtful. My friend had twin preemies. They were both under 2 lbs each. They are over a year old and doing great.
