Jane Hann Morey, left, pieced the blocks that MMQG members made using the left over fabric from the Riley Blake Challenge. Two completed quilts will be donated to the Oncology Unit at St. Mary’s Hospital in Lewiston, Maine. They will be used by patients when they have infusion treatments. A third quilt will be donated to the Linus project. Thank you to everyone who helped with this project!!!!! (Stephanie Berry, Treasurer, right)

What a beautiful isolette cover, Joan!
This is a side version of an isolette. The slits you see in the isolette are there so the nurses/doctors have access to the babies when they need care, or loving.
The isolette covers need a “window” in case the baby is jaundice and needs light.
The following “baby” items were made for the purpose of donation to the new hospital, Maine General Medical Center, in Augusta, Maine.
The “Angel Wraps” were made for tiny babies of miscarriage. The parents of these babies are given the wraps to take home with them.
The 24″x24″ quilts were made for stillborn babies and also given to the parents to take the home with them.
Not pictured yet, but made by Joan Emerson, Ann-Marie Schechtman, Hazel Henderson, and Betsy Cannan, were 4 isolette (crib) covers for premature babies. These isolette covers keep these premie babies warm and cozy, enhancing every bit of their body and spirit to be strong, and to help them grow up to be healthy human beings.
Ann-Marie graciously opened her home so that we could get together and work on the isolette covers. Thank you so much, Ann-Marie!
All the items were delivered to MGMC NICU (neonatal intensive care unit) on November 14, 2013 by Ann-Marie and Hazel.
This endeavor was headed up by Ann-Marie and Hazel.
Thank you, mod-quilters!
