100 Quilts for Kids

I was over at Michelle’s Romantic Tangle yesterday and saw her post about 100 Quilts for Kids.

Swim, Bike, Quilt

I thought…hey I can do that.  Then I started to think of a worthy place to send a quilt.  That is when I remembered that Judy from Patchwork Times is collecting quilts for Texas Fire Victims.    So I went through a pile of  quilts I had upstairs and decided to part with this quilt top….

It’s just a top but Judy offered to machine quilt and bind it.  It’s a Miss Rosie’s Schnibble pattern, Paganini.  I made it sometime back but just never finished it. You can read about it here.

I am also sending Judy this quilt.  It’s another Miss Rosie Schnibble, Roundabout…I loved this pattern.  I love the quilt too.  The machine quilting was “risky” for me.  I used a dark variegated thread and LOVED it.  It’s something I will do again on the right quilt.  This quilt is a hard one for me to part with…You can read about the quilt and see close ups of the machine quilting here and here.  I loved this fabric line.  Did I say this one was hard to part with?  It sure feels good to know that it’s going to someone who will use it.

The quilt is going for a good cause and that’s more important than having it sit upstairs in a pile of quilts I pull out and look at occasionally.  I’m glad that I blog because I can always go back, see the entries about it and reminisce about quilts that I have given away.  Before I blogged, I was horrible at recording any information about quilts that I have made.

Seeing these Schnibble quilts has really got me thinking that I’d like to make a couple again…Schnibble patterns are so fun.  I just love them.  It gives me a chance to use a fabric line I might not have otherwise purchased.  I love Civil War prints…but it’s nice to step out of that box once in a while.

Do you have something that you can donate?

    Most of the quilts I make I give away. One year I made over 50 baby quilts for ABC Quilts. Now I make them for Quilts For Kids. After losing our 9 year old son I want to try and bring as much comfort to children (and parents) as I can.
