Quilts for Kids

I posted recently about the quilt kit that I had received through the Downy website for the Quilts for Kids project. Very cute fabrics and I had planned on getting going on the quilt in the next couple of weeks.

My husband thought it was cool that everything was cut and ready to go and was looking for something to do on a long weekend so he grabbed it and pieced the top. He made one slight change adding the corner stones as he didn't like the way the striped border looked without them.

Yesterday I spent time working on Christmas ornaments that will be used to help decorate a tree to be auctioned off at our counties Hospice Festival of the Trees in November.

I am going to get the Quilts for Kids quilt quilted today and hopefully a few more ornaments made and then back to customer quilting tomorrow.

Very cute -- he did a good job and I like the orange cornerstones.

Okay I'll try again---Wow, can't believe your hubby pieced it. I just get mine to ooh and aah and hold the quilt(sometimes) for a photo--oh, and wait outside with a book while I hit a JoAnn's sale! Yours turned out way cute. I did one for QFK this summer. They work up fast!

Your hubby's quilt turned out great. I just started putting mine kit together yesterday and may use the cornerstone idea, too.
