    Wow! What a fantastic idea and for such a small investment. I know the residents are doing a happy dance in their hearts. That is so nice of you.

    Ccorazone...Bless you! I worked at a nursing home for 15+ years.....the residents there LOVED receiving quilts and other items that were "just for them"...add in quilts as a bingo prize....win / win all the way around.
    It is sew great to see BEAUTIFUL donation / charity quilts. It has always bothered me that some people think donation / charity = ugly. The underprivileged / less fortunate enjoy "pretty" too.
    Your quilts are truly lovely, and I can't wait to see more. Thank you for sharing with us.

I have been using this fabric to make LAP Quilts for a nursing home where my nephew works. Anyway, here are photos of some of the lap quilts I have made. I have already sent him 14 and have 7 more in the works.
    My nephew tells me the staff is using them as BINGO prizes and the residents are going wild over them. (I'm glad) I wasn't sure what reception they would get.

    The quilts are so nice and you are one amazing woman..then to donate them. Someone must have put you int he right place at the right time to get all that fabric. My hat is off to you.

    What a lot of thought and work you have put into these donation quilts. What a way to use the fabrics you got so reasonable. I can see why the residents love these quilts as bingo prizes. Thank you for the care that you took for these quilts for these people.

    Love the strong graphics - especially the first one.
    Relatively easy piecing but all are very appealing.
    I'm going to keep them in mind for stash busters.

    I'm sure the residents were thrilled with their prizes.
    You're a gem to be making the quilts for them.

    And at $.20/yard, I think that's the best score I've ever read about.
