We are making quilts for medical caregivers assigned to military hospitals in Afghanistan and Iraq, providing them a “hug from home” and a thank you for their efforts in taking care of our wounded service members. We are also making lap quilts for Alzheimer’s patients and the wheelchair-bound as well as quiltlets for NICU patients in local hospitals.
