They're Rolling in!

There will be a wonderful array of quilts going for donation to the hospital next Wednesday when I meet up with Eddie of CHICS
Jan, of Lunch Lady Jan blog, who lives in Wiltshire sent me not only this beauty which will make a child so happy soon,
... she made not one but TWO!! 
Thanks so much Jan! But wait for it... not only two quilts....
but super spotty lined tote bags to go with them!! 
The children will have to make sure their Mum's don't pinch these for themselves!
The stack is getting bigger!
When I met up with Eddie who is support worker, for CHICS, based at Alder Hey Hospital, he asked me to post this message from him.

CHICS provides invaluable help, not only for the child, who is going through treatments, but for the whole the family, especially where there are siblings who also need support. Grandparents too!
Our support spreads to North Wales, Wirral, Merseyside and beyond.
The quilts will be a lovely gift as comfort and joy to the children who often bring such items in with them on each visit so, to have a special one made for them will be a real treasure.
This is another partnership for CHICS and every little piece of help is really valued, as these quilts will be. It is so wonderful and amazing that people far and wide care enough to find time to make and donate such wonderful gifts to these special children. 
In my 20 years of experience it is heart warming to note that so many of these children go on in life to enter caring professions to become nurses, doctors, pharmacists and physiotherapists.
Thanks to all involved and Best Wishes

  2. wow LLJ Quilt is sooooo GORGEOUS - or should I say they both are...

    Wow that is fantastic Jo!!
    So pleased, isn't it thrilling how fellow bloggers join in such a good cause.. sending blog hugs for being so kind to think of doing this, Jo! but guess the end goal makes it all so very worth while. Shaz in Oz.x

  3. I so love that fabric that Jan and used. It’s so bright and colourful and it’s sure to bring a smile to someone’s face. What a lovely message from Eddie too.

    The cards were posted this morning so with a bit of luck you should have them in time for Wednesday.


  4. Yes, but I cheated by just using bright fabric and not having to join up lots of squares......anything for an easy life?... Grin.....
    Glad you like them, Jo and hope that they bring some happiness to someone :)
    Hugs, Jan xxxx

  5. Wow! Jan's quilts are absolutely stunning, that fabric is sure to bring a smile to a child's face - and the parents too. Hugs, Anne x

  6. Aww isn't really cute fabric, really nice. Jill x

  7. I just adore Jan's bright and cheerful quilts, both of them! I am sure they will bring comfort to the little people who end up with them. I just love that so many people have climbed on board to join in with this.

  8. Fab quilt off Jan- you just know some children are going to love these forever! I saw someone mention buying fleece blankets to make the reverse. Just wanted to pass on that I went into B&M today, and they have fleece blankets (120cmx150cm) in packs of two for £3.99. Assorted colours too. Thought you might like to let the others know. Hugs, Shaz xx

  9. 2 more fab quilts , these are so lovely and bright I'm sure they will help brighten even the poorliest little ones day.
