A quick project.

Two weeks ago, a friend mentioned that her Women's Institute was working to make little quilts and knitted / crocheted afghans for donation to the local Children's Hospital.  They'll wrap a stuffed toy in them, and a book will complete the gift - they'll be given to children when they're admitted.
Even though I'm not an official member of the WI, I sometimes help with projects like this, and offered to make a few little quilts.
I had a few ideas, and cut up some orange and yellow fabrics to make into HST units; I also cut up some of my "Eye Spy" fabrics into little squares to turn into a Plus quilt; and finally, I bought a Grunge Dots mini charm pack to add to a Grunge mini charm pack that I already had. I paired up each of the Grunge fabrics with a Grunge Dots fabric and sewed them into 4 patches, then sewed them into strips, and finally, into a big square.
I had some lightweight batting, and after a bit of a mis-step, assembled 4 little quilts "envelope" style - and they're ready to donate tomorrow!
I think they're kind of cute!  Hopefully the kids will think so too!
Linking up to Needle and Thread Thursday at My Quilt Infatuation, Can I Get a Whoop-whoop at Confessions of a Fabric Addict,  and Oh Scrap! at Quilting is More fun Than Housework.  Thanks for your encouragement!
