Blind Baby quilt

I met a blind baby today. It broke my heart to see him & realize all the things he'll never see. He was only about 11 months old. The age of my little granddaughter Carys. I went home & made this little woobie-quilt for him. It's not pretty to look at, but it's all soft textures, & shapes for him to learn by feel. I hope he likes it.

How sad. And what a wonderful thing for you to do. I feel bad for his mommy and daddy.

This is quilting at its best, in the service of others...
That child may be blind...but his hearing is going to be so rich...and it will paint his world for him.
I've read that deaf people like rain, because the sounds of all the little raindrops define space so well for them. Socially the child may have difficulties, but I have to believe that his inner reality will be complex and wonderful....

I'm sure he'll love the quilt. And he will love life as well. The most important thing is that his parents encourage him to explore the world in his own way. He won't miss the sight of things he has never seen!!
