The RVI hospital in Newcastle does fantastic work in their premature baby unit including looking after my adorable niece who is now 11 years old and wouldn't be here today without them and they really need some help. They need incubator quilts, just small custom sized quilts that fit neatly in the incubator with the babies. I have given all the details below and if you can donate any quilt by the 31st March 2012 by sending it to The Fat Quarters shop in Blackhall Mill, Newcastle you will be entered into a draw with a possibility of winning Moda goodies. You can contact Kim at www.thefatquarters.co.uk for more information or look on their website.
