    Cool My Very First Mini

    Found this mini the other day that was made when I started quilting in '93. It was made specifically to fit my GGM's doll bed I inherited when I was a child. I knew one day I would be making a quilt just for it. It's 17 x 21 and was tied with navy yarn. It's a pinwheel with feedsacks in it also.

    The next 4 minis will be going to NICU for preemie blankets. A poem that is really hearttouching is sewn to the back of each quilt as well as a label with the quilter's 1st name and last name's initial and it's done through Blankie Depot. Hearts is 15x15. Medallian Poppies is 19x20. Crazy Patch is 24x24 and another Crazy Patch is 16x16.

    Thanks for looking!!

    Look at those nicely matched points in your first mini!! What a treat to have an heirloom bed for it.

    I always love your quilts and these are just so precious! What a wonderful idea to give a quilt to a premie infant. Nothing could wrap them in more love!

    My son was a preemie. I still have a hand knitted cap that was given to him in the NICU. He was a micro preemie so he spent 3.5 months in the NICU. These gifts mean a lot. At one point, all he could wear was a hat and socks because of all the wires.

    Thanks everyone so much for your nice comments!! I sent 7 preemie quilts a few weeks ago and they emailed me and were so thankful and said they would be going to NJ NICU later this month!! They sew the labels on all of them first and then they are sent to be washed and ironed, bagged individually, and finally delivered in person by volunteers.

    It's so rewarding to see the minis put to such good use and we love the babies and they appreciate it!!
