100 Quilts for Kids

Swim, Bike, Quilt

I finished my 2nd "100 Quilts for Kids" and I'm again donating it to Project Linus.  They were so thrilled when they received the first quilt a couple of weeks ago, I'll surprise them and send the 2nd to them as well. 

I made the Storytime Squares quilt by Rae Hoekstra of Made By Rae.  Instead of using 5.5" squares, I used a charm pack and took Kate's suggestions for the pre-cut border dimensions.  This was such an easy and fast quilt top to piece, I'll be making it again and again.

Last weekend I was so fortunate to meet Kate from Swim, Bike, Quilt who is organizing "100 Quilts for Kids" along with her DC Modern Quilt Guild.  I met so many creative sewers/bloggers at the Sewing Summit in SLC last weekend.

On Saturday evening I went to dinner with a group of ladies that Jennifer from Ellison Lane Quilts and Elena from Breakfast for Dinner put together.    While at dinner, I sat next to Kate and 3 other creative sewers, bloggers, and one photographer.   What a fun evening!  Thanks again Jennifer and Elena for getting us together and also for the awesome swag bag you surprised us with.

While I was away last weekend, my sweet mom did the binding for me on my "100 quilts for kids".  Thanks Mom!!

Hope you all have a great weekend!!
