A Quilt With A Heart DIY


We have nurses in our family, and we are proud of them and their hearts of servitude.

The nurses in our family go all the way back to World War II to present day.

So, I am writing this today to give them a little love, sing their praises and recognize that

they are the unsung heroes in many a hospital stay.

Not to mention they are also crafty and talented...

So, when my (nurse) sister-in-law shared with me this comfy quilt made out of  tee shirts

and whipped together under 6 hours, I had to share it with you.






And along the way of sharing this nifty tutorial I wanted to share this with you...


Given the recent  Ebola concern in Dallas Texas, which is just 20 miles from our home,

it was important to me to share some gratitude for the nurses who took care of the first Ebola

patient in the United States of America and to all of those nurses who serve the large and

small communities throughout the World.


Courageous men and woman who do their best with the knowledge ,education, services and support

which they are presented with.



It is about being thankful for all of the nurses World Wide who serve their communities.





~Nurses~

You, are the tireless hands that care for our bodies,

You,  are the warm hug we need after bad news,

You,  are the kind arm we lean on to walk,

You,  are the soft voice that whispers a  prayer,

You, are the smiling comedian during a long afternoon,

You,  are the quiet sensibility in an insensible circumstance.

Thank you.






So, when my nifty nurse SIL shared with me this fun quilt with a heart-

the love from her heart which she poured into making this quilt...

I became super excited to share it with you!








This quilt is  made out of  T-shirts which her granddaughter saved during her senior year of High

School, now this granddaughter is off to college this year, so this is the perfect quilt for a dorm room.
