Someone asked my stepmother, who was at the dinner when the quilts were to be distributed, why I did this every year. Some of the recipients will have received more than one quilt over the years. My answer to that question is this: I think that receiving a quilt probably brings a smile to the faces of the recipient. That's why I do it - to make people happy. Being in a nursing home is probably a pretty dreary thing, and any kind of bright spot is most likely appreciated. The quilts they received in previous years were probably washed quite a bit and that will have taken it's toll on the fabrics, for sure. So, that's why I do it. And maybe, after the fact that I have done this for several years, some of them are expecting a quilt, and I would hate to disappoint them!
