Quilts for Healthy Beginnings

Quilts for Healthy BeginningsThe Vigo County Quilter's Guild began Project Angel Wings in June, which furnishes quilts to young mothers in HCI's Healthy Beginnings Program.

Already, 47 quilts have been donated. Connie Griffin, president of the quilter's guild, said she came up with the name because she feels that the quilt is like a pair of angel wings wrapped around each baby. Each quilt is dated and signed by the maker.

The Director for Healthy Beginnings, said that the quilter is given a picture of the recipients with the quilt and the mother's comment of what the quilt means to her. Thanks to the guild for their efforts on behalf of these little ones.
