Quilts for Neo-Natal Units

"These quilts began when I asked friends if they would like to help make 9 patch blocks to begin the process of making small quilts for Neo-Natal units.

The goal was to make 70 quilts to celebrate my 70th Birthday in December 2016. Little did I know that during the time it took to make the 9-patches, add the borders, the flannel backing, turn the quilts and do the quilting, that Telfed would also celebrate a 70th Anniversary.

My friend, Dina Carmiel, helped every step of the way. Several of her friends and the ladies at Accent Quilters made 9-patches and turned the quilts at meetings so that I could complete the quilting. I would like to thank each and everyone for their help."
