Heart Babies

I made these quilts for Heart Babies who are having heart surgery at the children’s hospital in Minneapolis.  THis is the hospital where my daughter Natalia went for her surgery to try to repair her heart defect, Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome… Alas for Nat’ the surgery was not a success.  It is heart warming to know that the lovies I made went to babies, toddlers and young children who are undertaking truly scary steps in their lives and that my quilts gave them a warm hug from Natalia’s mom.

The neatest thing was the little thankyou I got from one of the nurses.  🙂
