    Thought I would share some quilts I made for the Special Needs Classroom at my local elementary school. My husband volunteers there in a classroom three mornings a week and had a chance to visit the Special Needs classroom last year. He came home telling me that they really needed some new quilts! I insisted he ask them if they would allow me to make a few quilts for them, and they were thrilled (they gave me a size they preferred).

    So if you are looking for a place close to home that would appreciate a good quilt, you could ask your local elementary school!

    Thanks. My criteria was that they be bright and colorful -- and not baby-ish! Most of the patterns were from various quilting magazines I have purchased.

    I would have loved to have some more quilts in my classroom. When I was closing my classroom for the summer, I started to take my quilts home to wash and the kids really missed them.

    First of all your Husband is a wonderful person to volunteer at the school. What a special person. Next your quilts are beautiful. Just perfect for a classroom. You and your DH are a very special couple. Bless you both.

    My son has Autism and I still work with the school (President of the PTO) and I have made lots of things for them to work with and for the kids to use as work base learning.

    I know my son loves his "Happy Scrappy" I made him for his room and if it is not on the bed he will go to the closet and pull it out to be put on his bed. I guess he can feel the love I put in it with the old treadle! And he really likes the bright and busy colors of the quilt.

    I know the children will love the quilts, Thank You for the love you have given them.

    Billy
