Cathy McLees’ Beautiful Donation

By Sylvia Saffell

What a pleasure it was to meet avid quilter, Cathy McLees, on a recent visit to her home.  Cathy has been a quilter since 1972 and has taken home a number of blue ribbons for her excellent quilt creations.  This past year has been a challenge for so many and quilters such as Cathy used the time to create all the beautiful designs seen here.  AZ Blankets 4 Kids is the lucky recipient of this ‘stash” and how the children who receive them as comfort blankets will love them!  Cathy also gave a tour of her home, which is truly a quilter’s dream home!  The children of the greater Phoenix area and all of us on the board of AZ Blankets 4 Kids thank you, Cathy!



  1. I would love to help out and donate to children somehow. I am not the greatest quilter (just simple tie quilts), but I am very crafty. I have sewn blankets and also done many of the “knot blankets” with the fleece material. I would love to help out and donate my services and time. Just need to find out what is needed and how to begin the process of helping !! Please send me more info. Gina Southwick 480-457-0677
