The Numbers Are In!

Assuming that there are no more on the way (I don't think there are), we received a grand total of 45 quilts or blankets! Ever child that we hoped to give a quilt to has or will be receiving one...as well as all siblings. This was so much more than I could have hoped for. Our thanks and tears of happiness go out to all who helped or even thought of us through this endeavor. Christmas will be happy and warm thanks to everyone's kindness!

The Quilts Have Been Pouring In!

Okay, so I haven't updated in quite a while, but wow have we been blessed. Thanks go out to so many people. We received a donation of over a dozen infant quilts from Project Linus, 2 I Spy quilts from Sophie and Colene and the About.com quilting forum, fleece throws and scarves from Anna in Illinois, 2 beautiful whole cloth quilts from Chanda in Montana, 5 quilts from Julie in IL (sock Monkeys garden girls, rubber duckies, Mickey Mouse and hermit crabs), a beautiful 30s repro cat quilt from Pat in NM and 3 quilt tops from AnneMarie (2 of which I have completed)

We've started ditributing them, much to the joy and surprise of our families!
