I had a bit of trouble with the stippling. I am not sure why. I was really worried that it wouldn't hold up in the wash. One of the requirements is that the quilt can withstand being washed repeatedly. But it washed well and actually looks better now.
I always try to teach my boys about charity and giving to others. We donated shoes for the earthquake victims in Haiti. I also explained to them what this quilt was and who it was for. They began to call it the hospital quilt. As I was making it I tried to talk to them about who would get the quilt and why I was making it. I am taking the quilt to the post office tomorrow to send it off. There is a place to register the quilt to let people know who you are and why you made the quilt. Then there is a place for the recipient of the quilt to enter their thoughts. I really hope I get a response. I would love to know about the child that this quilt benefits.
