Last October Mollie of the Heartstrings Quilt Project and Yahoo Group challenged us to make heartstring quilts in black and white. I added a few polka dots and ended up with three tops 40x58.
I used some flannel with cats for the back and finally got them quilted and bound.
I am donating these to Wrap-A-Smile. Wrap-A-Smile provides quilts for kids who undergo cleft lip/cleft palate surgery provided by Rotaplast.
Some of the hospitals where the operations take place on these Rotaplast Missions have no linens and the quilts cover the OR tables.
The hospitals have no electric warmers to keep the children warm after surgery so quilts are used. And each child gets to take a quilt home after surgery - a home where often the quilt is the only item of value other than the family's cooking implements.
And what was in the grass under the clothesline? One single crocus I almost missed. Finally some sign of Spring. Whoop, whoop!
Speaking of Whoop, Whoop...I'm linking up to Confessions of a Fabric Addict where everyone Whoops it up on Fridays.
