Speaking of babies, my sister has become a trained volunteer with our local hospital's outpatient hospice. In talking with the volunteer director there, she learned that there is a need for quilts of various sizes for the hospice patients, including children. Our little monthly hand-sewing group has committed to each making a child-size quilt over the summer, to be delivered to the hospice after our September meeting.
I was horrified to learn that there is a particular pressing need for incubator-sized quilts. How terribly sad to think that there are infants being served by a hospice unit. This had not occurred to me. I Googled "incubator-size quilt" and came up with either 12 x 18 or 16 x 20. I've not made a quilt that small, I think, and plan to start one this coming week. I'd like to think I could do one each month for this need.
