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.
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:
