    Old scrubs repurposed!

    The hospital I work at has decided to change the color of the scrubs that us nurses wear, so I've decided to make lap quilts from old scrubs to give to the Olcott Center that is affiliated with our hospital. This center is a resource center for cancer patients and families. They give away wigs and hats as well as booklets and mostly they are there to support the patients with cancer. Attached is the first lap quilt I made. Just need to put the border on it...after I purchase one. I hand quilted this one.

            What a great idea to recycle. No one can ever accuse you of not being "green" for the environment. Your lap quilt turned out great.

              I packed up all my old scrubs when I could no longer work, you make me want to pull them back out again!

                      What A GREAT IDEA!!! I am a nurse and have been for a while, HAHa, I have several old uniforms from different colors that we have used throughout the year and was wondering what to do with them all. I LOVE this idea!! We have a cancer clinic close by and I bet they could use these. Thanks for sharing such a great idea. Happy Quilting to you.

                        Marti, if you are like me you have printed tops and then solid pants that go together well. I'm actually going to post my idea in our break room at work and see if others will contribute to my lap quilttop stash.

                            I like those. The scrubs come in so many colors and designs now. My mom was a nurse, but I kinda doubt anyone would have wanted a quilt out of those old school white polyester uniforms ...

                            Before you speak,
                            T - is it TRUE?
                            H - is it HELPFUL?
                            I - is it INSPIRING?
                            N - is it NECESSARY?
                            K - is it KIND?
