Mountain Baby Quilts

I am really excited about this little quilt. It is for the Mountain Baby Blanket project. Did any of you see the special with Diane Sawyer? So heart breaking. Thinking about those little babies is almost too much for me to take.

You can read more about this great project here.






I made a stacked coins quilt with wonky seams. I used Amy Butler and some white flannel for the back.

I love this little quilt and I am excited to send it off to it's new home.

Very very pretty quilt. You have that special touch with quilts, I could never coordinate colors as you do, combining them reminds me of a frost on the window, complicated simplicity. It is just amazing how many people in blog world doing something so special as this quilts.

Beautiful little quilt. The recipient will love it so much. I've been planning on a crib quilt to donate, and some flannel blankets. I will get to work on them now that I've seen another wonderful donation.

Adorable quilt and so generous of you to give this to a great cause. I am moved by the project. I don't quilt yet but I wonder if they take crochet blankets. I'll have to look into it:)

I watched that Diane Sawyer special this past weekend -- heartbreaking for sure. I spent some time in high school working in that area and that part of Kentucky touched me deeply.

I am so proud of you-gorgeous work again! I read a bit about this project, I am too scared to watch the 20/20 show just yet-I am afraid I might have a breakdown! I would like to help though, so I will look into it. I weaned Ava officially last night and I am quite sad-when my spirits lift, I will watch the show and see how I can help too. Thanks for sharing!

Wow Philigry you are so generous. That quilt is just beautiful and to think that you are sending it off to someone who really needs it. You are so kind.

Just beautiful!

What a sweet little quilt...just perfect. Lovely colors...coin quilts are so pretty!

Jenny said...

Ooh, hey! I just joined the project. I saw the special and my heart just aches. That is where my family is from. My maternal grandmother was born and raised deep in the mountains of eastern KY and the hardships she experienced way back then are clearly still around today. Great job on the quilt! Next time I raid my cloth bin, I'll be looking for baby quilt ideas.

Steph said...

You've inspired me to try my hand at a quilt for the local women's shelter. I'm going the easy route for my first one, and using a jelly-roll for a strip quilt. I'll blog about it!

Gwen said...
