Weekly Finish #14-#20: Comfort Quilts For Kids
The H2H Comfort Quilt Challenge was over at the end of May. I was late in submitting my entry form for any prizes, but I still submitted the form so my 7 comfort quilts can be included in the final count. As of 2 weeks ago, there were 562 comfort quilts donated to various organizations as part of the H2H challenge! That's amazing!
Last year, I put together these fabric & pattern "kits" but I didn't find the time to finish them until now. Using my GO! Big cutter, I spent a couple of days doing all the cutting.
And because they are small and everything was together, I was able to sew 1 or 2 tops a day. Then, I spent another couple of days quilting them with a simple overall stipple design. I attached the binding by machine and finally finished them yesterday.
Overall, it took less than 2 weeks from cutting to binding which also includes a trip to Joann's for backing fabric. I'll be taking these comfort quilts to the drop-off location tomorrow and am actually taking 15 quilts -- these 7 plus the 8 baby quilts I finished in April. So happy to be donating these to Project Linus.
