Memorial Quilt Project

Postby annegarrett » Sat Nov 29, 2003 11:43 am

Dear PF Members:

So many of you have lost babies and we want to do something special to remember them...some have suggested decorating a onesie and sending it to the PF for our office, others send us pictures, etc...

I think we should start a quilt. You can either make your own square (or have someone do it for you) or ask us to do it. We would ask that you contribute $25 per square to personalize it. If any of you are quilters and would like to donate your time to help with the personalizing of the squares, that would be great. Please contact us either way. I think the squares should be 12"x12" but let me know if you all think that is too small.

Take care,

A fantastic idea! I've never quilted, but 12x12 seems like a good size.

I've never quilted but, I think that a memorial quilt is a very nice idea for our little ones.

I can make a square for someone, if needed. Just give me colors and an idea of what you want...

Just wondering where the quilt project is at. My mom made a square for Erik and sent it in. Thanks!

I am interested in helping out with the quilt. I can quilt individual squares for people, help put the quilt together or what ever you need.

I don't quilt either, but would love a square for me, and Tyler. Let me know where I, too, can send $$.

I sew, never made a quilt block, but I am willing to try to help some one remember their special baby. Please let me know if this is still going on.
