    Beautiful quilts and beautiful kids. I hope everyone enjoys the warmth a quilt brings. Good for you to give them out. Good for the good hearted people that gave them.

    So glad the quilts found good homes, those kids are adorable and so happy with their quilts. I'm working on a few quilts for the hurricane survivors from the nearby bay area, Many lost everything and some will be able to return to their homes as soon as repairs are finished. Quilts will be given to local agency that is working with these poor people. May in Jersey

    Everytime the quilt is used they will think of you in fondness.

    Those beautiful children with their warm smiles have really warmed my heart. With all the sadness that has surrounded this holiday season, the generosity and love of giving people really proves that there is so much goodness around us. Thanks to all who contributed their time, talents, and treasures.
    One step at a time, always forward.

    Those smiles say it all! I showed this to my DH and said, "See those smiles? That's why I make charity quilts and give them away!"

    It's true that most of the time I don't actually see those smiles, but the smiles in the pictures you posted match the smiles I see in my imagination!

    Thank you. It's gratifying to see the joy in the childrens' faces, not just imagine it!
