On a Whim
I've heard quilters discussing Quilts for Kids, for hospitalized children, sponsored by Downey, so I gave it a try. Just a few clicks and a packet of fabric was on it's way. I received it in less than a week, all precut, with instructions, a drawing, and "please return in 4 weeks." They ask for a LOT of quilting, no ties!" I can do that! The fabric is excellent quality and delightful! That GREEN is the backing and binding.
Below is the finished top - this little project was a good reminder that it's really much easier to assemble a quilt if the pieces are large AND precut! It's about 36 x 45. I add my batting and pay for return shipping. Maybe I'll also include one of my other kids quilts in the return package.
Give it some consideration - the top took only a few hours to assemble, and you can stitch in the ditch with your walking foot, or practice your machine quilting. (No invisible thread, please).
