    There is a site that gives you fabric to make quilts. I deleted the link. Does anyone have the link. I believe it was a children's hospital.

    Are you thinking of Downy quilts for kids. They will send you kits to make quilts.

    I think I just read something in one of my quilt magazines lately. I think the site is Quilt for Kids. They send you the fabric to make a quilt & than send it back. Not sure of the exact link, but I will research and it on if I find it.

    Not sure if it is what you were looking at before, but Quilts for Kids will send you a kit to make a charity quilt. All you provide is the batting and binding.

    Is it a certain pattern you have to make? Or can you just make one of your choice? This is a cool idea. And do they have to be a certain size? I did see that you buy the batting and binding yourself and pay to ship it back.

    They have patterns and recommended sizes on their website. They also accept quilts not made from their kits. I plan on completing my kit and then doing another from my stash and sending them back together.
