    Well, I have finished my first Quilt for Kids project quilt. I am so excited! I think it has been 4 weeks since I received it, so I am not sure I will have time to finish a second one before my 6 weeks is up or not. I have a quilt for my BIL's 70th to finish before June 26th and haven't even started yet. So might just get this one on its way and then won't feel so pressed for time.
    I must say this went together very easily, and it was awesome thinking about the pleasure and comfort it might offer to a sick little one.

    Oh, forgot to say, the name is "Things that Go"

    Back, fabric almost makes it a reversible quilt!

    Great job, Nursie. I also only sent back the kit quilt. I have to get some kids fabric so I can make my other one.
    You did a great job-your quilting is so straight.

    Good to hear that someone else only sends back the kit quilt. I have a ton of kids fabrics due to a Craigs list buy and do plan on making more from my own stash, just short on time right now.

    Thanks for the compliment. Actually there are some whoops places, but the bar on my walking foot was a huge help. They said they wanted densely quilted, so I tried to do that.

    Don't know if it shows, but I used a variegated thread on the top and I really like how it looks, I will be using more of the variegated threads. :thumbup:
