    I made my first quilt @ 25 years ago. I finally began quilting again this summer, and just finished my first quilt. I made this quilt to be donated to www.QuiltsForKids.org and will be sending it in shortly.

    It is machine pieced and quilted. I picked the fabric myself (rather than ask the charity to send me the fabric).

    There are many minor mistakes, but I don't think a typical child will notice it or care.

    love it! looks nice & snuggly. Do you need someone to try it out? I am "quality control' around my house & I sleep with each & every quilt I make before I give them away!

    I didn't see any mistakes, so no child will. I love it.

    This will provide many happy memories in times that are troubling for some child. You have done a wonderful quilt for a wonderful purpose.
