Quilts for Kids

both together
Have you heard of Quilts for Kids? You can submit your info and they send you fabric to make into a quilt for them. They give to quilts to kids staying in hospitals. I love that.

You need to add your own batting and use your own thread. Then you make a friend to go with it, and you send them back.
Easy Peasy, right?
1 before front
I made this Katie Quilt from Missouri Quilt Co. I had a charm pack and went to town. I love this pattern! I will totally use it again in the future.
2 before back
Quilts for Kids asks for you to quilt them heavily. I’m not sure I’ve ever quilted so heavily before. I love the grid on the back.

4 before up close
This was my most favorite quilt to pull out of the dryer. It crinkled up beautifully.
5 after all wrinkly
I really love the way the stippled area crinkles. My husband even gets excited about it. He knows that the crinkles are good. He is a keeper for sure.
6 after all wrinkly
I had to hide some words in the quilting again. This one says “Love” in the top of the white shape. Can you see it?
7 after quilt 2
This was the quilt they sent me the fabric for. It went together quickly.
8 love
And again with some “Love”. This one reminded me of Jr. High bubble letters that I always hated so much. Guess I was feeling the 80’s when I was quilting it.
9 label
They even sent a label for me to attach to the kit quilt.
