Sew and Tell Friday #5: Quilts For Kids

 DSC01349

Finally finished my second Touch of Comfort quilt for Quilts for Kids.  I named it “Robot Fun”, and it is now on its return trip.

Look at the really cute backing they sent for the quilt.  I think it’s adorable and should bring many smiles to one lucky recipient!

I did take a little longer than the 4-6 weeks they give you to return the quilt, so I hope the quilting police don’t come after me!

And here is the 2nd quilt I’m sending along.  The quilt top was made by my friend Mary so I was able to complete the quilt in time to send to Quilts for Kids.

I’m planning to request another kit and again hope to add a second quilt to go along.  The Touch of Comfort program with Quilts for Kids has a goal of 10,000 quilts by the end of the year.  Interested in helping?  Click here for more info.

I am also linking up again to Amy's Sew and Tell Fridays.  Don’t forget to check out what everyone else has been up to!

  3. Quilts for Kids is such a great program! I've done several for them and I've never had the quilting police come after me, even if it takes a little longer! It would be great if we saw more of these on all of our "quilty" blogs!! Beautiful quilts!
