I am using my 15-minute coffee break to dash off this quick little blog post, which is actually a request to any of you who quilt. I spoke to the social worker that took the pink Valentine quilt last month. She told me that the little girl who received it was SO EXCITED! Yay! Happy happy happy!
She also told me that she has several small boys that would love quilts. She has asked for small quilts for toddlers up to age 8 or 9.
Now, I happen to be working on 3 little girl quilts using squares from the the generous ladies over at Quilts for Kids. And I am sure they will go to good homes as soon as I’ve finished them (one will be ready to go any day now) – but I would like to put them on hold for now and concentrate on some little boy quilts, since that is what is needed at the moment.
My problem is that my stash (which is actually looking pretty good right now) does not contain any (none, zip, zilch) little boy fabric. I have zero animals, zero planes, zero trucks, zero cars, zero superheros, zero anything at all that says “boy”.
So…if you have any little-boy prints taking up room in your quilting stash, I would happily put them to good use. I
want need to make a few small quilts to give to these little boys. Many are in sibling groups. My heart aches for them. These are little boys who have recently been removed from their homes and are either in the receiving home awaiting foster placement, or newly in foster care. They are young and could sure use come comfort to snuggle up in.
Thanks, guys. Contact me if you can help.
