Kid's Quilts

Deb recently posted that the Pieces for Pediatrics project, which gives a quilt to every child admitted to the Lawrence Memorial Hospital, has logged in their 612th gift.

We help by donating quilts of any size (the kid's go up to 18 years old.) Zach above is very pleased with his space ship quilt. Dinosaurs, robots, superheroes and pink princesses are always welcome.

As are donations of fabric, kid-themed or otherwise.

See Marla's blog post about Zach here:
