The Wish Quilt

The Wish Quilt

A great idea for a Quilt for Kids Quilt.  Mrs. Baker’s first grade class all brought squares of fabric in, made a wish and wrote their wishes down.  They then put together a beautiful quilt and story to go with the quilt.  It is the kindness of this teacher and these children that will make our world a better place.

What a wonderful experience for those children to have at such a young age.  I am sure they will remember it throughout their life.  Here are the beautiful children I am talking about:

A “Good Cause” Baby Quilt

A “Good Cause” Baby Quilt

Here is my baby quilt to donate to the Quilts for Kids Charityp4040071 I was really excited by the challenge to use my stash and scraps to make something cute.

This one is made all out of scraps except the green border. The floral is leftover from a dress I made myself (ten years ago), the white is from a sheet that I cut up for a mummy wrap game! I am especially proud of this one because I was able to make something amazing with stuff I already had! Who knew this was hiding in my closet all this time…disguised as old fabric that I almost tossed into the trash thinking that I would NEVER use! This was so much fun! I am already thinking up new quilts! We have a few (growing) bins of scraps here at the shop and we would love to have some help putting together baby size quilt tops. We are planning to have one night a month to work on this…we will let you know as soon as we decide which night and time!
