A quilt for a kid, part 1

I can already tell that the kid who gets this quilt is going to be awesome.

I posted a few weeks ago about signing up for Quilts for Kids, a project that donates handmade quilts to kids who can use them. My quilt kit arrived right before I left town for a few days to make paper flowers and hang out in my favorite city on Earth, and I couldn’t find a time to sit down and open it until yesterday morning.

Verdict: it’s pretty cool, and I’m SO EXCITED for the kid who gets this quilt. The kit comes with a simple pattern (mine is a simple four-patch that alternates with a plain block) and all of the pre-cut fabric you need for both the front and back. All you need to do is set up your sewing machine and go. Which I did, with glee.

    So exciting! Will you post a pic when you’re done? Can’t wait to see it.

      Definitely! Hoping to finish up the top (and maybe the whole thing…) this weekend!
