Today's Quiltsy Cares donation comes from Margaret Gaylor of PeggyGaylerDesigns. Margaret heard about a request to make some doll quilts for A Doll Like Me. This event is called Spread the Love-Quilting For Kids in which quilters for all over the word are making doll quilts for dolls that are made to look like the children they are going to.
Amy Jandrisevits makes very special dolls that look like the child who receiver them. She makes many dolls with limb differences (missing a hand, or an arm, or leg). She makes dolls with a birthmark matching the child who owns it. Maybe the doll wears a cannula (the little tube bringing oxygen to the child's nose). The doll might have glasses, a hearing aid or possibly albino skin or hair. Anything that a child has, Amy makes the doll have it-so the child can see his or her self in that doll, and have " A Doll Like Me"/
Margaret made 2 dolls quilts to donate to the Spread the Love event.
