Quilts for Kayla! (update)

I am so excited to share these pics with you today!

I'm getting my first box of quilts ready to ship to Kayla's family in PA.  All of the quilt tops I've received so far are quilted, bound and have labels attached!  My original goal was to have a minimum of 25 quilts for the Children's Hospital and I'm still hoping we can make that goal! (this February 14th Kayla would've turned 25) I could not be more thrilled and thankful to all of you who have sent quilts, or are still planning to send them.   I know there are a few more quilts and a top or two on their way to me this week.    Take a look at this beautiful stack of quilted goodness that will be going in the mail!

Kayla's Mom, Bobbi, was presented this quilt from a group of friends (aka: Happy Chicks) on Saturday to be added to our gift collection.  What an awesome quilt and even more awesome friends!

This is the label that I designed to be attached to the back of all of the quilts. 
I'll post again when I'm ready for the next shipment.

Quilts to Honor Kayla update.

Just a quick update on the quilts I'm collecting to honor Kayla Rose.  If you missed that blog post, you can read about it here.

When I first started this project, February seemed like such a long way away....but it's really right around the corner. 

I want to thank those of you who have sent quilt tops for me to quilt for this very special project....Carol, Sandi, Pam, Bobbi, Marika & Brandi!  (and Michelle, I know you said one may be coming) I'm finishing up a couple of quilt tops of my own as well.   I have a few more to quilt and I have several finished quilts that are on their way to me!  A special thank you to Kayla's Aunt JoAnn for her donation to help cover batting costs. 

Check out this stack of finished quilts!


Quilts will be sent to Kayla's family to deliver to the Children's Hospital in Pittsburgh in honor of what would've been Kayla's 25th birthday on February 14th.   What a beautiful gift of love!
There's still time to send a finished quilt if you've got one to spare and would like to take part.  We're looking for a good lap sized quilt (approx. 60x72) that might appeal to an older child.  You can send me a message at if you'd like to participate.
I'm so excited to wrap these kids up with some quilted love!
