Quilts for vulnerable children

I had a call yesterday from Micheala from Catch-22 to see if I thought the children she works with would be eligible for Linus quilts. If, like me, you've never heard of this organisation, have a look here to see the kind of work that they do. As far as I'm concerned, vulnerable children like these are the ideal recipients of Linus quilts, as not only do they need the hug, but they also need the quilt!

Michaela kindly came to my house, and took 12 of the largest quilts I had (for young people aged 16 and over) and six cot quilts, as some of these youngsters are already mums. So if anyone out there has any large quilts or a good pattern which knits up big, please let me know!

Any cause that helps the youth of today is a worth while cause. I bet those quilts will bring a lot of comfort.

That is so nice of you to donate those quilts. I am sure those quilts were well appreciated!
