It's been a while since I've posted, shame on me. I've been busy, busy, busy.
Today I want to share just a tiny bit of my busyness.
Quilts for Kids is an organization that provides a comforting quilt for ill children.
They will provide a kit to make a quilt or you may make your own,
using your fabrics and patterns.
I wanted to get involved. I ordered a kit, so I would know what they were looking for.
I was so excited, I got the quilt top done right away.
Several months later Quilts for Kids emailed me about the kit.
Oh No! Turns out it found its way under a stack of fabrics and I forgot all about it.
I had wanted to send a few more quilts back along with it,
but now I was really behind and I'm not a fast quilter.
I quickly started planning and making a few more to go along with it.
One of the quilts, which I thought was a
fabulous idea (so wonderful in my head) turned out not to be.
It's not terrible, just not how I envisioned it, so 2 steps forward and 1 step back.
Then I remembered I had a couple quilts in the closet.
Made them, never used them or gifted them.
I got them out and they joined the stack nicely.
This is the kit I was sent. It is so cute with all the trucks and I love the stripe binding.
The binding wasn't included, but the stripe was the backing that
was included and I squeezed out enough for the binding.
These are the three I had stacked in the closet
just waiting for the right home.
I added a bit more quilting and zig-zagged around the
binding per Quilts for Kids preferences.
And this last one I made just for some sweet little girl that might like butterflies.
I had a few yards of this brighter blue, and it needed butterfies.
Can you believe the salvage said Patrick Lose 2002.
I really need to get using my stash!
Here are all five waiting to be boxed up for the ride.
I was thrilled to finally get these in the mail, but not happy about how long it took me.
