Another project


boys20haven20quilt-mOne of my dear friends collected some fabrics from someone she knew and gave them to me with the plan/intent of creating quilts for Boys Haven. This facility houses troubled boys and each boy is given a quilt for their bed while they stay and then take it home with them when they leave. It is brokenheartedly sad to see them question the gift—as these quilts are all made by someone who does not know them, is not related to them and is not a cast-off or a plain blanket nor is it a loan.

They like patterned quilts and those featuring super heroes or other themes. I have made western themed, denim ones and this past week put together this one from those scraps and leftovers. It needs a border still to make it large enough and it will join the pile of quilts destined for Boys Haven. I put a label on the back with an encouraging wish for their future—a small thing but maybe it will make a difference in someone’s life.

    What a beautiful gesture.

  2. I’ve been able to be there when the boys choose their quilts—it is hard to watch them react with such disbelief that these are for them and someone they didn’t know made them specifically for them. All of us leave with smiles and tears on our faces.
