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!

  2. Those quilts are cute. What size are you making? As soon as taxes and shearing are done, I need to play again

  3. Wonderful selection of offerings! It's SEW kind of you to participate in the program.
