    You could give some of your quilts to the children's hospital, and/or to children in regular hospital. Retirement homes can use them, too. How about donating to the families that have children that are terminal, and if the child don't make it, then the parent can have the quilt to wrap around themself. I tell them it is like getting a hug from the child. Then they will have something that was the child's to keep for themselves.

    What is the finished size of your lap quilt, please.

    It takes real skill to choke on air, fall upstairs and trip over completely nothing .... I have that skill!!!

    My plate may be full, but my cup runneth over with blessings.

    Ahh, I like it. Nursing homes would love to have lap quilts donated, especially at Christmas. There are so many in the homes who have no family and get no gifts.
    Live and let live!

    Many good places benefit from lap quilts. This one would make a nice wheelchair quilt for someone in a rest home, hospice or hospital. I make many small quilts for babies and for 'drag arounds' to give to foster kids. I still tear up when I recall an emergency foster parent telling me of a child taken from a meth lab house. He had literally nothing when he arrived at 2 AM but the teddy given by the police officer and a quilt of mine from social services. Even his clothes had to be destroyed. There is no overestimating the value of a loving quilt gift. This boy was clutching his quilt when he left her home months later.
