Quilt For Kids

Discussions on the Houston Modern Quilt Guild forum introduced me to Quilts For Kids. They transform discontinued, unwanted, and other fabrics into patchwork quilts for children with life-threatening illnesses. All you have to do is sign up on their web site and they'll send you a kit with everything but the quilt batting. They even pre-cut the fabric into strips for you!

I quilted it this morning on my Janome 6600P. This was the first time I've quilted something larger than 10" x 12" on a regular sewing machine, and while I still prefer using a long-arm quilting machine, it was nice to be able to knock this out on my sewing machine.

All that's left is to add the label to the back (also included in the kit) and mail it back. I hope some little girl enjoys the quilt!
