Quilts given at Christmas











Three of the quilts I made and gave at Christmas were for some children that my niece-in-law is fostering. These kids were going to be taken from their parents because of drug abuse issues. Instead, my niece took them in and is fostering them. She has three kids of her own, so she is very busy! Her story touched me, and I decided to make quilts for the three kids, plus one for her youngest daughter. The kids love their quilts, and I am waiting for pictures of the kids with the quilts. The thing I love most about quilting is the joy I see on the reciever's face !

I love the piano key border on your string quilt. I think I might "borrow" the idea. :c) All your quilts are wonderful and lovely gifts!

Hope you enjoy blogging...I've found it a fun addiction.

What lovely quilts you have made/given. I especially like the string one, but then I do have a weakness for string quilts. Welcome to the world of blogging :)
