Quilters have hearts as big as Texas!!! :D
Marie was sick so my husband went with me tonight to present the quilts that came in from my The Big 5-0, Birthday Wishes and Charity Quilts quilt collection!
I received 24 quilts but as of tonight their enrollment had dropped to 13 so Butch and I measured all of the quilts and took the longest ones because these children are 13 - 21 years of age.
We gave quilts to 5 boys and 6 girls tonight. 3 of the girls are not in the photo because they asked not to be.
You should have seen their smiles!! I wish I could post the photo of their faces with the quilts but the privacy laws prevent that. It is for the safety of the children.
But I can show you this photo and you can all envision what a big smile would look like behind those quilts because that is exactly what is going on!
They just kept saying thank you! I had pinned the name of the quilt maker to each quilt and asked the children to say a prayer for each of them tonight! :D
I want to say a HUGE thank you to each quilter who made this presentation possible!! We should always show our children that they are loved and what better way to do that, than with a quilt!
