    Downy Quilts For Comfort

    Downy will provide a free quilt kit (donation) with a pattern. Also, this site has a great tute for the Double 4-Patch.

    but everyone else can. People are kinda like that. ~~

    I made some several years ago. This reminds me that I'd like to do it again. It was fun!

    I've made several of these quilts - request one from them and send back two. Their fabric makes one quilt and my fabric makes a second. They are fun and there is a great need.

    I try to donate every 3 months. Seasons change...I sew for them. They usually get a box of 4 quilts.
    If you don't work on it you'll never finish it.

    If you would like the kit, to make and donate, they are currently behind and are not taking requests for the kits at this time.
    Better to do something imperfectly, than nothing perfectly.
    Done is better than perfect.
