Celebrating milestones of Premature and Sick Babies

100 Day Milestone Quilts Project 

The Life’s Little Treasures Foundation is Australia’s foremost charity dedicated to providing support, friendship and information, specifically tailored for families of children born premature or sick.

Having a child that is sick or premature can be a very traumatic roller-coaster ride and the foundation strives to give families the support and assistance they need.

About the 100 Day Quilt Project

Having a baby born premature or sick is a very overwhelming experience for parents. Some of these babies are so unwell that they can spend months in hospital, meaning their parents go for extended periods without their babies at home with them. Life’s Little Treasures would like to provide these families with a special keepsake through a gift of a handmade quilt, lovingly created by members of the local community. These quilts will be kept as a special gift and remind parents of how far their baby has come through such a difficult and life changing experience, as well as a symbol to let them know that they are being thought of by the greater community.
