April seems to have been "Make a Quilt Month" and we Do Love Quilts:
This past month we have received dozens of wonderful quilts from several groups of blanketers:
Square Corner Quilters
Mountain Vista Church Quilters
Jackie Cohen, Chris Nash & Murleen Fillmore group
THIS IS WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO
This beautiful child is Annika, who just turned 5 years old. She has a cancer called Neuroblastoma and is now going thru her second run of chemotherapy. She received this lovely crochet blanket from P.L and we are all wishing her well and hope this fancy cuddly blanket gives her some comfort.
East Hollywood High School
The students at this charter school in West Valley City, are required to earn citizenship credits by participating in service projects. A group of them has chosen to fulfill this credit by making no-sew fleece blankets for P.L. These two girls and two boys (who ran away to class before I could get their picture) spent some time with me to learn the proper way to make the blankets. Their plan now is to teach other kids the process and make blankets before school is out for the summer.
WELCOME BABY/BABY YOUR BABY
In April we were able to share many of these fabulous quilts with new moms and expectant moms. Baby your Baby is a part of WICK (a Utah State Agency) which assists young mothers, underprivileged mothers, and high-risk pregnancies. They counsel and teach vital information about pregnancy and infant care. They provide formula and diapers, and give support to each other. The goal is to insure that moms and babies are on top of the parent thing.
