New Numbers

I want to update everyone on our numbers.  Last year (May 28, 2010 to December 31, 2010) we delivered 75 quilts to Lawrence Memorial Hospital.  This year (January 1, 2011 to March 24, 2011) we have given LMH 62 quilts.  If my math is correct and I can't guarantee that--I absolutely hate math--we have given the pediatric unit 137 quilts.  Is that amazing or what?  I am so excited by the numbers.  The numbers show we certainly had a surge of sick children from January thru March.  We are hoping that is on the downhill slide now.  Our goal though is not to stop.  Hopefully we can stockpile some finished quilts and next year we won't have the frequent panic attacks!!!  Everyone around me would be happier without my panic attacks!
Let's look at some quilts.

I love these pink and black cats.  Simple and fast to put together, these cats are plain fun.  The backing helps to make this quilt pop!

We have shown you a quilt similar to this.  Similar is the key word.  We still have not made two quilts alike.  This is a great pattern and fabrics to use for a quilt for a guy.  Be sure to look at the fun quilting.

Yes, I know.  This penguin quilt is sideways.  Yes, I can turn it on my computer, but when I post it here, it turns right back. I am sure someone could do it right, but that would not be me.  So, humor me.  Turn your head to look at it.  It is too cute not to show you.  And the backing is so fun with all the occupations kids can choose. Just for the record, there are professional photographers that specialized in taking photos of nothing but quilts.  I think you can tell, I am not one of them.  Thanks as always for caring enough to take a look.
