quilt for 1 more kid...

One of my goals (resolutions) for 2012 was to make a few quilts for charity.
This is my 3rd donation quilt for the 100 Quilts for Kids Project.
It may look pretty simple, but it's actually very special and holds some good memories.


I used a line by Sandy Gervais (can't remember the name ... something Spring) to make a quilt for my first grandchild, Elyse. In addition there were bumper pads, table skirt, etc. In my excitement I may have (did) overbuy in the fabric department. The leftover has been sitting on my shelf, calling me to do something special.


I added a few current fabrics and simply sewed squares together. The backing was pieced using every last bit of leftover fabric.


So thanks to an over-zealous grandmother, a child will get a special quilt.
I'll be donating the quilt to Project Linus with the St Louis Modern Quilt Guild's Fall Charity Project.
