Quilts for Kids #1
I had read about this organization, Quilts for Kids, on a blog and thought it might be fun to do with my kids. A great way to teach my kids a little about sewing as well as making something for a good cause. The company donates the quilts to children that are in hospitals. Basically you pay for shipping and Quilts for Kids sends you a quilt kit that includes the fabric to make the quilt top as well as the backing fabric. You supply the batting, binding, thread, and time:) I ordered two kits at the beginning of summer and thought my older two kids could each have one to work on. It was a learning experience for all of us but overall I think my kids really enjoyed learning a new skill and donating something they had created. Haley's is all finished up and Tyler's is almost done. Here are a few pictures of Haley's quilt to donate. The little squares have a school theme so I thought it would be fun to take pictures by our local school bus shop.
