Past quilts
We have received some news of past quilts this week - it is wonderful to know that kids get ongoing comfort and pleasure from their quilts.

We received this photo of Abigail who currently has her quilt with her in Bristol Children's Hospital - get well soon, Abbie!



We received this news about Scott:

"Scott is back in hospital and many people have commented on how beautiful his quilt is and how talented you all are. When people look at it he signs thank you! He likes to sign 'car' and points at the ambulance on the material (he's been in one too many times). Scott has very little energy, so often likes anything that he can look at,and his quilt is so bright and fun. He has settled tonight stroking the square with mater on. It is nice to know there are lovely people out there who care about our special kids. xxx"

And Corey-Jack:

"Lil Corey-jack has been very poorly again and guess what was the only thing he wanted! Yep you got it his Love Quilt! xxx"
