More wee quilts, etc.



On Sunday I had time to finish a stack of little items that had been close to completion for a few weeks. I just needed some uninterrupted time to stitch down binding, weave in loose ends, sew on snaps and ribbon trim, and do a few other things. On Saturday I’ll plan to run these -- and a few more like them -- over to the local NICU for the bereavement program director.


The quilt below still needs binding. I want to go with a light blue to make it a boy’s quilt, but haven’t run across the right color yet.



I also read a poignant story online recently about a mother working through a loss. One of her most precious keepsakes was a quilted flannel envelope/pocket folder where she kept her little son’s nametag from his isolette, his only little booties, and a few other items marking his brief life. From looking at her photos, I was able to put this together:


If the NICU finds something like this useful, I’ll make more. I think they could look very sweet and special with a few simple embellishments, flat eyelet trim, etc. And I imagine the soft flannel would be very comforting to the touch.
