100 Quilts for Kids

Every year, I participate in an event called 100 Quilts for Kids.  The traveling event usually occurs in the fall and this year, it is being hosted by Alyson at The Hasty Quilter.  I haven't seen a lot of promotion on the event but it looks like this year the link up is staying open for 3 months.  
So there is still ample time if you want to participate.




The timing of the event is always perfect for me to donate my Rainbow Scrap Challenge quilts.  This year, I was able to make two quilts form the blocks I made.  I finally had an opportunity to get my tops quilted last weekend and they are now ready to be delivered.




 I donate my quilts to a local organization called Bags of Love.  They in turn distribute them to agencies that aid and support children in my area.



Every month, I made two blocks in the RSC chosen color.  To finish off the quilts, I made some additional yellow and black blocks.  The backings were either from fabric passed on to me from a friend who couldn't use it or from my stash pile.

I am already thinking about what blocks I am going to make in 2017.  I like to keep them simple and of course, they need to all come from the scrap bin.

I will probably share the blocks I have planned for next year when the RSC color is announced for October.  So stay tuned!

Two deserving little kids are going to be warm and snugly. The blocks look great together and the size seems just right.
