Baby Quilt

I finished up one of the baby quilts I started a few weeks ago.  It is quilted, bound and washed up, ready to be taken to the brain rehabilitation injury unit at Unity Hospital.  My Dad spent time in this unit after he fell last summer.  There were several children there who had suffered brain injuries or had just had brain tumors removed.  I have decided that I am going to give back to this unit for all they did for my Dad and all they do for brain injury patients and brain tumor patients.  



The quilt measures 36 x 36 and was made using Bella solids which i purchased for a solids challenge but was never able to participate in and the white is leftover from the brain cancer quilts that I made for my immediate family.  I purchased the giraffes at my LQS.  The binding is scrappy leftovers from the churn dash block and the backing.  

For those that are new to my blog, my Dad was diagnosed with primary brain cancer in March 2013 and had his tumor removed shortly thereafter.  He is currently doing really well and shows no signs of tumor regrowth.

What a great way of giving back. The quilt turned out very lovely and I'm sure will be appreciated.

That is a very thoughtful gesture. I can't imagine how difficult that line of work has to be. As I'm new to your blog, I appreciate the explanation about your father. I'm pleased to hear that he is now doing well. Your quilt looks great. Enlarged blocks are very on-trend right now. I also like the scrappy binding.

I like your quilt! I have made a couple of the same pattern, also for donation to our children's hospital where my daughter spent a significant amount of time. That pattern goes together quick and easy but still looks great. Best wishes to your dad and his recovery.
