There are so many friends who are in hospital beds, nursing homes, and adult care homes. They all have hospital or twin size beds and would love to have quilts that cover their pillows. They use the pillow cover tuck part to help keep their upper arms and neck warm. Please include a section for special needs.

QUILT SIZES AND PROJECTS - I like to make smaller projects because  I am usually able to complete them, whereas most of my UFOs are bed size quilts that I have lost interest in.  I have a short attention span and lots of quilted bags. My favorite projects are:

Purses and bags

wall hangings

lap quilts

Table runners
