Adorable Donations

 I continue to be blown away by how generous quilters can be.

When Amanda saw that I had shared some smaller sized kids quilt I had made for my Compassion Quilt project, she asked if she could send a few she had finished.

She ended up sending four and they are so adorable, I have to share them with you.  They have me thinking about block designs for September - which will be all about kids.

Love this little log cabin sweetie.

I giggled out loud when I saw the monkey and banana fabrics.  On the back was this sweet jungle animal flannel.

I also loved this garden themed patchwork beauty.

The colors are so cheery and the vegetable themed flannel on the back just makes this an amazing little quilt.  Really adorable.

I love the colors in this one!  Lots of fun fruit fabrics.

The rainbow flannel is the perfect backing.

The design of this little quilt I found quite intriguing.  I don't think I have seen this pattern before.  The fabrics are very gender neutral and have some great alphabet prints.

More of that fun rainbow flannel on the back.

These four lovely quilts along with 17 others were delivered to the hospital yesterday.  As we were unloading the quilts onto carts at the hospital entrance, an older couple came up and asked if we were selling quilts.  They were there visiting their very sick great grandson and thought a little quilt would bring him comfort.  

They were the sweetest couple and immediately had photos to share and stories to tell. So I was able to gift them with the little monkey quilt and the story of how it traveled the US to find its way to their great grandson.  They couldn't believe that something so beautiful was given so freely.

Thanks Amanda - and thanks to all who donated blocks.  Stories like this happen all the time.  Quilts just have a way of finding their perfect home.
