    Sew lovely! Pretty in purple! Very nice of everyone to do that for hospice.
    Be a blessing to others, as you may entertain angels unaware!

    My father is in hospice care and I have see that every room has a quilt. I think that in the future I will be adding several to their collection as a thank you for the care they are giving to our whole family.

    Your work is beautiful and from scraps and leftovers no less.

Do the families keep the quilts as a remembrance or does the hospice use them as they are needed?
    The ones that usually get donated to us are lap quilts. Our families keep them after the pt passes!

    Beautiful job on the quilting and the color choices. We have a new hospice house near my home and several people I know have gone there in the last few months. All the families can talk about is how much the staff did for them during their stays. I would love to do some quilts for them. Thanks for a great idea. They are using afghans now, and I know I'd rather have a cuddly quilt any day! Thank you for being such a caring person.

    You are doing such a wonderful thing. My husband is in Hospice care right now. He has Colon Cancer.
