These were actually some donations that I
received by referrals by your site. They weren't 6" squares - but
the enjoyed the work that these ladies did - and took the time to make
such lovely designs. I added borders around them to make
into a normal sized blanket shape - and gave these to a homeless
shelter in KC that accepted families, women and children. At the
time they had a baby and another young child at their facility and were
so appreciative of the nice blankets.
