Small Finishes

This year, I have made a personal goal to increase the number of charity children's quilts.  In addition to "Quilts For Kids"; I will be making quilts for the Petite Bijoux Project and Upside Downs.  

The mission of the Petite Bijoux Project is to provide parent care packages for preemies at the Terrebonne General Medical Center NICU patients.

"A Star is Born", finishes at 36" X 45" and uses black and white Kona with a dark gray (3 1/2" blocks) to make a popular Buffalo Print.  The addition of the star symbolizes the tiny, but mighty, preemie.

The mission of the Upside Downs, Inc. is to help the Down Syndrome community through new parent support, recreational activities, raising awareness and advocating for a brighter future.  The quilts received by Upside Down are part of care baskets gifted to new parents.   

My free block pattern, "Have Faith", was introduced in 2018 during Sarah's / Confessions of a Fabric Addict, Hands 2 Help Challenge.  Using nine (9) blocks, the Have Faith quilt below, finishes at 36" X 36".

Great charities. I personally have a heart for preemies. My daughters children - two sons were each born prematurely. They are almost 8 and 13 now and no one would have a clue that either was a preemie. It's a difficult and scary time for parents. Bless you for all your charity quilting.
