First off, my own little darling. I couldn't resist taking a pic with my new solar patio lanterns.
And then comes my adopted lunchbox quilt for Little Mrs KO. She passed away just after the quilts were revealed and never saw what a sister guild member made for her. I volunteered to quilt it on her behalf.
Little Mrs KO's quilt is destined to be donated (as per her request) to an organization that helps individuals with mental health issues. I'm thinking Choices. When last I visited our local children's hospital to donate some baby quilts, the volunteer coordinator pounced on the twin sized quilt that I had brought. She said they receive very few that are suitable for the teens in the Choices (addictions and mental health) program. Come the fall, I'm throwing down the gauntlet to the members of Mariners and my Bees. If you're a hard core quilter, you've probably got a few twin sized quilts hanging around. When you think of the love and comfort that a quilt can give, how could you not want it to go to a young person in a stressful or even life threatening situation?
