What a Monday: Preemie Memory Quilt, Girl Gift Set, and a Feature!

I couldn't wait to get home from work today to post the latest pictures and news. My sister so loved the Memory Quilts we're making that she quickly gathered up her daughter Daisy's preemie clothes and promptly dropped them off at mom's house for quilt construction. Daisy was born at 2 lbs so most of the preemie clothes swam on her. And with her time in the NICU, my sister was always washing the clothes - so Daisy really got alot of use out of her few outfits. Mom didn't have alot of clothes with which to make a quilt, but she did manage to get 20 squares. In fact, she even used Daisy's hats! The knit hat was made by our Grandmother and I had mixed feelings about cutting it for the quilt, but it is here - and quite a cool square you can see in the close-up pic:

My cousin in Minnesota needed a girl baby gift for a shower - so we put together this bright pink tulip set for her. It is a long-sleeve onesie, bib, flannel-backed burp cloth, and a receiving blanket. I love this tulip fabric and I think after this blanket was made, it is finito. Thanks for thinking of us Cuz!!

To cap off the day - Audrey over at Audrey's Country Crafts asked to feature our shop on her fantastic blog. Today we were posted - so please pop on over to her blog and check it out - and all the other amazing features she has. THANKS Audrey!

  5. As a mother of a preemie infant, the day that the NICU gave a little yellow knitted hat to my son, and a quilt for his isolette, I was overwhelmed! To think that someone was thinking of my child in need! I still get very emotional about the thought today. That hat and quilt are tucked away in a very special place for him to have once he is an adult. The memory is tucked away in my heart forever.
    Thank you for what you are doing. As he is turning two this summer, I have been dedicating time to giving back. I head an organization called 'Made for a Miracle'. I have video tutorials on my website as well as printable instructions. If you ever would need more exposure, please feel free to contact me and we may be able to merge in our causes. Thanks again.
