Another Round of Cuddle Quilts

With the price of fuel for heating, I anticipate that this year the need for some cozy quilts for the children we serve in our supervisory union will far excced those that were donated last year. Many of our students have moved on and we have a new batch of kiddos coming our way. While we certainly have famililies who have the means of providing for themselves, many are from lower socio-economic and/or limited educational backgrounds. My goal is to provide these children with a) something to keep them warm and b) something of their own made especially for them.
Anyone willing to help? Last year we received over 45 cuddle quilts, afghans, and fleece throws. The only parameters are that they be something warm that a child will love. I can be contacted here or through the about.com quilting forum.
Happy quilting!
