Just reminding everyone that today marks the first day of 100 Quilts for Kids 2014! This year Heather at Quilts in the Queue is hosting this great event. Last year, over 200 quilts were donated to children in need. I participated last year and I already have a jump start on what I hope to donate this year!
Here is my first finished quilt for the event! A friend recently cleaned out her sewing room and offered me a bunch of different sized triangles. I re-cut them all to a uniform size, added the gray ones leftover from my own triangle quilt and came up with this fun scrappy quilt.
To help tone down the busy-ness, I decided to attach a soft gray border. I also chose to quilt it with my favorite swirl pattern.
This quilt will be donated to Bags of Love - this organization provides necessities and comfort items to children who are in crisis due to neglect, abuse, poverty or homelessness.They try to include a quilt in every bag they distribute. Nothing brings comfort like a homemade quilt!
I hope you find some time to join in on the quilt drive. This is a great opportunity to use up some of those scraps and if you need inspiration, take a peek at my Scrap-A-Palooza gallery for some quick quilt ideas.
...now, onto the next quilt!
