I got a HUGE box full of fabric and scraps from Mary in Rolling Meadows, IL yesterday. Thanks so much Mary!!! I love all of it but especially the little girl prints - so cute!
I also finished my first Quilts for Kids quilt!!!! Yea! I love how cute and cuddly it is. I decided to leave the border just the way it is and I'm glad I did. I love the effect it gives the corners. I'm so excited about making charity quilts. I wish I could see the little girl's face that ends up with this quilt.
One thing I really like is that there is a label included in the kid. You write your first name and the name of the quilt on it with a permanent marker. There is a website that you can also register the quilt on. After it is delivered to the recipient, they are able to go online and read alittle bit about the story behind the quilt. Plus, if they want to, they can add their own info into the story. Such a neat idea!! Here's my label for the quilt, which I named "Princess Dreams"!
If you haven't requested a kit yet, please go do it now! And for all of you that are working on kits, please try to send a second quilt back made from your own fabric. We can really make a difference when we all work together!
