Finally put the last stitches in this Downy quilt yesterday. Now 'Kicks', as I named it, is all packed up ready to go to the post on Monday. I shared photos of this kit from Quilts for Kids, back in July. Here's the finished quilt. Quilts for Kids is a very worthwhile organization. They send you all the fabric, pattern, etc., and you make the quilt. It comes complete with a label for the first name of the maker and a space for you to name the quilt. There were moments of angst making this quilt, like when I accidentally cut into the back fabric while trimming the batting, etc., but it's all fixed and ready to go. I doubt the seriously ill child who will receive it, or the parents will notice the minor oopses which are now fixed (unless the mom is a member of the quilt police).
