Last summer I came across the website of an organization that provides quilts for kids who are sick and in hospitals all across the county. (www.quiltsforkids.org) I ordered a kit of fabric (they send you a fabric kit free, all you need to provide are the batting and thread). I also bought a little bit of fabric for the binding because I didn't want to just fold over the backing and top stitch it down to the front.
I also used scraps from the Goose's Brown Bear quilt and made a second quilt to send along with the first. I finished these two last fall and shipped them off to Quilts for Kids. :)
Turtles & Friends
The Brown Bear quilt was made entirely from scraps from a kit I had ordered a few years ago to make the Goose a Brown Bear quilt...I can't believe how much extra fabric was included in the kit for the pattern provided! I still have some scraps left!
I used a gift card I got for Christmas to buy fabric to make two more quilts for Quilts for Kids.
The two quilt tops are done now... They just need to be basted and quilted. I hope to finish them up soon! :)
