Doll Quilts


My daughter Anne and her friend Alison (who was staying at our house this weekend) designed these 4 doll quilts for the Santa Claus Girls in GR. This Christmas, these blankets (and many others) will be distributed to little girls who might not have ever had a homemade gift before. Anne and Alison are blessed with mothers, grandmothers and great grandmothers who make them lots of homemade treasures. It is important to me that my daughter's earliest memories include giving CONCRETELY to others. If you have a daughter or granddaughter please consider giving her the gift of these memories too. Everyone has something to give someone else.

Thanks for posting this picture. We had a good talk about giving these quilts away - I was expecting tears, but instead I got, "let's get more squares because there's probably lots of girls who have dolls without blankets!" Off to the fabric store we go! (or maybe the neighbor's closet!!!)
