Now there are Pootie Pads for Pooches, too! These pads have soothing organic lavender and thyme quilted in and ore made of cotton fabric, Dream Puff, polyester batting. These are perfect for lining a bed or crate or for protecting the sofa from your four-legged friends fur. If your dog is suffering from anxiety or stress, the aroma of these herbs may help calm him or her.

Quilts we delivered to the Palo Alto VA Hospital in 2013 -- see a photo gallery of our visit here.
Hi everybody! We're here to organize a community gift of quilts and other comfort items to the Detroit VA Hospital to be delivered July 16, 2014 at noon -- one day before NN14 kicks off. This year, we are focusing on the facility's nursing home which has 65 beds. So the goal is 65 quilts, a mix of wheelchair size and lap throws.
Winglion is the home of the Community Quilt Project where we stitch together loving thoughts of friends for those facing illness or other hardship, and of Pootie Pads, small quilts filled with organic herbs to pamper your pet with soothing scents. We celebrate the connection of people to each other and with the four-legged creatures with whom we share our homes. At Winglion, there is love and warmth in every quilt we make.
You, the community, support our work. Your help provides us with materials and supports our hours of work on each quilt project. We are thankful that you keep our needles quilting!

Last week Aji wrote a deeply-felt and compelling diary on behalf of two of our most beloved community members, Sara R and winglion (Ann), who are the creators of the Community Quilt project on Daily Kos. That diary did its job; the original quilt sisters have survived their immediate financial crisis.
How about a lap throw quilt filled with organic lavender flowers, sprinkled in the batting (think of it as a Pootie Pad for People)? For those who find the scent of lavender soothing and healing, these are heavenly. Cost is $175 plus shipping.
Looking for that perfect gift? What can compare to a personalized quilt? As you will see in the GALLERY we can make a handmade personalized quilt for every occasion.
