Season of Giving

Caring Quilters is a charity quilt group somewhere close to Denver, Colorado.  They make quilts all year long and donate them.  One of these wonderful quilters is a friend of mine named Teresa.  A few years ago Teresa lost her husband and I think this group has helped her through her grief.  Today she sent me an email telling me of the big fling they had today.

"Our charity quilt group had a big fling today. This morning we took 80 quilts to Ronald McDonald house.  One was given to a tiny little girl before we ever got inside the door.  She and her family were on their way out heading for surgery.  3 more were given to another mother who had a child who had been in the hospital since before Thanksgiving so her 3 kids could have a quilt each.  That still left enough for 1 quilt for each room. 
Then we headed over to the dialysis center that my late husband went to.  We took 55 quilts there.  This was enough for each staff member as well as each patient to have a quilt.  There were thank yous and hugs for us. 
It was a very good day. 
Our group made 267 quilts this year, and every one has been delivered now.  So 3 of us have empty closets to start the new year with."

She sent me pictures of 58 of the quilts that she personally quilted.  I can't put 58 pictures in one post, but I'll show you some of their work...

Wonderful job, Caring Quilters!!!

That is so wonderful. Her joy in the faces they saw was so overwhelming, I can understand how she needed to share that joy. These quilts look fabulous, and they have blessed many people this day.
