Preemie Quilt Update

Back in January I delivered a pile of preemie quilts to the NICU at the IWK Children's Hospital in Halifax. I wrote about it here and my encounter with a Dad who just wanted a pink quilt for his daughter. 

A pink quilt for a tiny baby and her dad.

I had accumulated another pile (87!) quilts to go in to the hospital so while I was at my quilting bee, my husband delivered them to the NICU. I asked him to inquire about the baby girl and the pink quilt. Knowing the hospital is very conscientious about privacy I doubted we would find out much. I guess I just wanted to know that she was ok...and she is! She had just been sent to her "home" hospital (the IWK is the only children's hospital in the Atlantic Provinces). So she is much closer to home now and I am sure her parents and family are thrilled to have her there. I hope the pink quilt is keeping her warm! Many thanks to the quilters from the Mayflower Quilters Guild and the Mahone Bay Quilt Guild for their continued wonderful support of this project. I am truly grateful.
