NICU Quilt Tutorial by Purple Panda Quilts

On thing I truly love about this online quilting community is all the wonderful and supportive friend’s I have made. One such friend is Kristy from Hopeful Threads. We are working together this month to make NICU quilts, blankies and lovies. Another wonderful, amazing and crazy talented friend is Lyanna from Purple Panda Quilts.  When I mentioned the project to her she offered to do not only a quilt, but a tutorial as well!

What makes this truly amazing is that Lyanna is currently in graduate school and pulled herself away from her studies to do this, thank you Lyanna.

Please make sure you head on over to Purple Panda Quilts to get the tutorial for this stunning baby quilt!

  5. This is a great pattern and a wonderful thing. It is a great idea! My daughter Joy was born at 23 weeks last year. Due to modern medicine and prayers she is doing great today. I hemorrhaged at 17 weeks for the first of 4 times because of 100% placenta previa, which turned into placenta accreta (which I believe was caused by 3 prior c-sections). After she came home from 121 days in the NICU, I wrote a memoir called “From Hope To Joy” about my life-threatening
 pregnancy and my daughter’s 4 months in the NICU (with my 3 young sons at 
home), which is now available on both the Amazon and Barns&Noble websites. It was quite a roller 
coaster that I am certain some of you have been on or are currently riding on. My mission is to provide hope to women struggling with
 high-risk pregnancies, encourage expectant mothers to educate themselves before 
electing cesarean deliveries, provide families of premature babies a realistic 
look at what lies ahead in their NICU journey, and show that miracles can 
happen, and hope can turn into joy.

Thank you.
