The Story Behind the Gown
Friends of quilter Susie Stiving made gowns for her during her from her favorite quilt fabrics for her long hospital stays and the gowns lifted her spirits.
We thought you might like to make a hospital gown for a loved-one. So, we have two free gown patterns available for your use.
Consider making a shawl, wrap or lap sized quilt to go along with the gown for times when a little more warmth is needed.
