Fall is coming and that means babies need snuggling in warm baby quilts. Relief Share volunteers are having a ball making soft cute quilts for little ones to be welcomed into the world with.
Relief Share is thrilled that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon) sisters made 6 baby quilts at the activity night on Tuesday. One baby blanket was given out right at the meeting to a sister to take for a little baby girl soon to be born. It was a cute Winnie the Pooh quilt tied with bright pink yarn. The quilts were made by Jan Stice, a long time Relief Share volunteer who is proficient at making gorgeous quilts, the sisters in attendance tied all the baby quilts to get them ready for donations out to the sick and needy.
Jan Stice was instrumental in Relief Share donating 450 twin size quilts over the space of 4 years to the St Louis Shriners Children’s Hospital and also 30 quilts donated to the chemo unit at the West Plains Ozarks Medical Center Hospital in Missouri.
President Carol Green took 5 of the baby quilts directly from the meeting to the maternity ward at Texas County Memorial Hospital. They were delighted to get them for their sick and needy babies born at the hospital.
Would you like to help? Baby quilts are 36 x 45 and toddler quilts are 45 x 60.
You can help by:

3. Donate supplies to make baby quilts – fabric, batting, yarn, etc
4. Donate to Relief Share through Paypal – to info@ReliefShare.org and we will purchase needed supplies for the quilts.
