    Neonatal Quilts

    These are two small quilts for the Neonatal Unit at the Hospital. They are 23x23 with flannel backs and the 3 Dudes block. It is my first attempt at hand quilting and I rather enjoyed it. I am anxious to try hand quilting again.

        If anyone wants to make quilts for hospitalized children you can either visit the following website for their specific instructions (so the quilts are safe for all ages of children as well as so they hold up to frequent washings) or if you don't have stash fabric to use for the quilt, they will send you a quilt kit -- the kits have very cute, bright, quilt shop quality fabric -- and provide you with a pattern and the address to mail it to for distribution when you finish it. Go to: http://www.quiltsforkids.org/

          Really sweet quilts. They will love them! I like having hand quilting projects around for nights when I don't want to sit at the machine.

              Very nice, Alana!!! I really like that "3 Dudes" block. It's especially nice they will be used to keep teeny ones warm and cozy.

                  That's the spirit Alana! What a beautiful gift to make for the hospital bubs.
                  You have done a lovely job and I'm sure they will have plenty of use over the years.
                  May your sorrows be patched and your joys be quilted

                      Alana ~ Those are so pretty! I work in a hospital and I know how much those people that have babies in the NICU appreciate these.

                          Alana, just lovely. Is this a hospital you deal with directly?

                          I know Quilt for Kids doesn't allow anything to be hand down on their quilts not even tied. I would love to do some small hand quilting jobs.

                              It is done through our Guild here. The nurses come by the presidents home and pick them up every so often. Now I don't know if they aren't to be hand stitched.....I guess I will have to find out. Nothing was said about that only the size and material. I'll call tomorrow and find out. Otherwise I can always give them to the Women's Shelter here. The babies there could use them too.
