Quilts for Kids - Ahoy Matey

During the month of September while I was sewing every day I decided I had to request a kit from Quilts for Kids, Inc.  The kit arrived on Saturday; it's pieced and quilted; tomorrow I will add the binding and send it back in a day or two.  I made a quilt for them a couple of years ago so I'm way overdue to make another one.  In fact, if you're looking for a way to bring joy to a child in need then please visit Quilts for Kind, Inc and request a kit.  The kit comes completely precut and ready for you simply start sewing. 

I hope this quilt bring a smile and joy to a child in need because it definitely did it for me.  :-)


There's a label included in the kit and I'm to add my first name and the name of the quilt - Ron suggested "Ahoy Matey".

I'm still working on my stitching/fabric challenge - I think I have a viable solution.  Thank you ALL so much for all your suggestions. 

Make tomorrow a pieceful day. 

In Friendship!

I've been absent from blog reading and need to catch up but Quilts for Kids sounds wonderful (yours is very cute). I think I will look into it.

I love this charity! The headquarters is in my area. The founder and another volunteer came to speak at our guild in the summer. We had made a bunch of quilts to give them. We are planning a workshop there soon - I can't wait!

Love your quilting! They do have some of the cutest prints in their kits. I like to change mine up by adding snowball corners--and the last one I completely redesigned the basic setting to make a medallion setting (that was fun). An overdue completed QFK top is waiting here for me to quilt--gotta get on it! Luckily we have a local chapter so I don't have to mail it and the leader brings me a new kit when I request it.

That's the perfect name for a wonderful quilt that will surely become a treasure to the child who receives it! Off to request a kit - thank you! I'm glad to hear that you have settled on a plan for your sweet snowmen!
