This was one of 5 kits I cut of my stash to donate to Lincoln Quilts for Kids charity. This one was a little short of fabric to put in the kit so I pieced some together and actually sewed the blanket together so that it was done. The other 4 went as kits to others at the county fair if they wanted to join in and make a quilt for this charity. You just contact your local chapter and they will see you get a kit to sew up.
I used one of my boat blocks from the SewCanShe BOM and made a charm square quilt around it. I have 3 more boat blocks to make into something.
Mod Olive QAL. This was made with the Quick Curve Ruler from SewKindofWonderul. This was the hardest one of hers to make but it was fun in the retro fabrics and colors.
Both of these quilts were made by others and I just quilted and put the binding on for my guilds Cuddle Quilt Charity.
MM Fabric challenge quilt for QuiltCon but it didn't make it in the show. It was a hard challenge with the pastels. In the end I was happy to finish this one.
