I took this week's block and added three extra rows to the top and bottom. That made it long enough to use as a quilt to donate to our local hospital for their newborn intensive care unit. That is one of the charity projects my quilt guild supports. It's a great way to get orphan blocks out of my house and into use for a good cause. I hope it brightens some family going through a medical crisis. Kathie
P.S. A few people have commented asking the size of these preemie quilts. We have been asked to make them about 18"x22". They can be an inch or two bigger in either direction, but no smaller than 18"x22". They are backed with flannel and have no batting. So I simply sew my top to the flannel (right sides together, leaving an opening for turning), turn right sides out and machine quilt.
