Happy Quilting Star Reveal

Well, I am a week late but I finished my little happy quilting star.  This would be baby quilt #2 out of 6 all due by October 1, 2013.


I love this quilt!   The pattern and the bright colors make me smile.

The quilt that was meant to be

Where I work they focus a lot on charity work.  I do most of my charity work through quilting on my own or through my guild.  One of my very helpful co-workers sits on the board for the Boys and Girls Club of Venice Beach.   This club has a great history with working with local teens to get them to college.


So when this very sweet co-worker asked I would make a quilt for the Boys and Girls Club to auction off, how could I say no?  The only issue is he gave me 4 weeks to complete the quilt.  Right in the middle of baby quilt hell month.  I was not sure that I was up to the challenge.

Two days after he asked me to make a quilt, I still had no idea what I wanted to make.  My friends and I went to a fabric yard sale.  Several quilters got together and sold items from there stash.  There it was, this little kit for $10…yep TEN BUCKS.  Right then and there I knew I was looking at my Boys and Girls Quilt.


I present you my first kit quilt:
