Thank You!

I recently received this thank you note from CareFirst (formerly Southern Tier Hospice and Palliative Care).  It is a bittersweet reminder of why we make quilts and then donate them to those in need.

Mountain Laurel Quilt Guild,

     Thank you so much for the recent donation of blankets/quilts.  The blankets geared for men are very much needed and very treasured by those who are fortunate enough to get one.  I have to share that the amazing blanket that had the fishing decoration on it was placed in the arms of a grieving mother whose 18 year old son had recently died in her arms.  The blanket serves as a tender reminder of her son while providing a substitute for his warm embrace.

As you can see, there is still a need for quilts and blankets for men!  If you are looking for a way to use up those John Deere or camouflage fabric scraps that are taking up precious stash space, why not consider making a "manly" quilt or blanket to donate to CareFirst? 

Contact Susan Mc, outreach chair, with any questions or for more details.
