A group of local women are dedicated to making baby quilts for several community programs.

“They are so fantastic. These gals have delivered over 500 quilts in three to four years. It may be 600 by now,” said Carolyn McClary, self-proclaimed group recruiter.

“I’m not one of the major quilters. I’m not as talented as them. They deserve a pat on the back,” said McClary.

In 2011, the women donated 135 quilts and last year they donated 86. They also pass along booties or hats that are made, but do not offer yarn on site.

Most of the quilts are donated to the Reach Out Pregnancy Center, Harrison. Others have been donated to the Bright Fire Department, Harrison Fire Department, Harrison Police Department, Shawneesprings, and University Hospital.
