We recently visited Hope for Life Rescue to check out what their need for little quilts was. While we were there, we were fortunate to see a tiny mama Chihuahua and her two even tinier babies, among many other sweet little creatures. They keep some of the kittens in “Onion bins”, stackable little bins that the kittens can climb up to like bunk beds. So I did my measuring and pulled out some flannels that I have on hand. And here is what happened:
For the larger bed quilts (they look to be crib sized mattresses which had been donated), I used a lovely robin’s egg blue sheet:
For all of them I used double batting to give them a bit more loft and make them softer to lie on. The flat sheet was of very high thread count (actually not nice to sew with due to how tight the weave was, I had to finish the edges by machine as hand sewing was very tedious for that reason). I did very simple quilting, in part due to the double batting, in part to get more done quickly.
