    Thank you so much for sharing!!! I have just started a Summer in the Park quilt, and I love the idea of using the
    left overs in a charity quilt. You did a wonderful job! God bless you!

    The first quilt, I just made it up with left over pieces from the Summer in the Park and added some color and white triangles so I could get it to size. Then I appliqued the little diamonds in the center of the white area, it just looked like it needed something. There is no pattern.

    Great Job!!! I'm a hospice nurse! And want to say "A big thanks to you". We have volunteers that bring in lap quilts sometimes and our patients just love them. It's always so neat when they come in, because we usually have a patient that each quilt is perfect for!

    Beautiful! When my Mom passed in a Hospice facility, they had a beautiful quilt that covered her as she left their facility. I was told they have one donated for each of their patients.

    What a good idea. I belong to a small group of around 6 ladies, no club really, we just get together each month. Most are quilters and other crafts. Your quilts are lovely.
    Live and let live!

    What is the size of a Hospice quilt? Is is a lap quilt size, or bigger for a bed? We have a wonderful hospice in our area (I imagine all hospices are wonderful) but this particular one has cared for several of our loved ones at the end of their lives, and I would love to have a part in bringing comfort to those souls nearing the end of their lives. Do the families keep the quilts as a remembrance or does the hospice use them as they are needed?

    Those are great!
    People who start projects and never finish them are cooler
    than people who never start projects at all.

    Beautiful and bold, however, one is definitely feminine. Great job.
