First, We'll start with the story of this quilt.
She measures about 31 inches square.
Believe it or not, there are still people out there who do not know what quilts are for...
Background: I was in an adult education class that included a group service project. While discussing what we could possibly do as a group, I told them about how quilters (myself included) often donated quilts to charity & I mentioned a few of the biggies like Project Linus.
One of the gals in my class had been given a quilt for her daughter (13+ years earlier) at a baby shower. She did not know what to do with it (It had just been in her closet).
ASIDE: At that time, I was only going through infertility treatments, so I had no hands on experience with babies. So I thought about how I would use a quilt with a baby.
PICTURE Amy as a 7 year old girl with a doll swaddled ALL THE TIME.
Little did I know that I would "NEVER" swaddle or carry my baby in a quilt. I use Jacob's quilts during tummy time or as a "blanket" over his stroller for the most part. (We keep our house "warm.") So I understand why she & others do not know how to use a quilt with a baby. (It doesn't exactly work like when you played with dolls.)
To end the story, she brought me the quilt to donate to charity.
Purely by coincidence Wanda recently posted this quilt. (Very odd to see hers knowing that I just uploaded mine...)
Which is actually similar to what Cathi has been working on. (I hate to think about the amount of work that went into the one that just sat in a closet...)
I'm donating it here. (I know that it gets cold in the mountains & I have seen that kind of poverty, so I know that this is the place for my little quilt.)
