    I am so happy to be able to send this back to "Quilts for Kids". It was a quilt of "firsts" for me:
    --first Downy Quilt for Kids
    --first quilt I quilted all by myself! (Yay)
    --first time I folded over the backing for the binding
    I thought it came out pretty well. Just love those duckies!!! :-D

    Beautiful!!! I love the backing as the binding too! I am definitely going to try it. I am also going to look into doing some charity quilts too!

    Quilts for Kids actually sends you the fabric, all cut into strips already. I think the fabric is adorable, too!

    I do Quilts for Kids quilts too and the fabrics are always so colourful and nice. I have one waiting to be put together, in Dr Suess fabrics.

    We also collect small quilts for distribution to our local hospitals and take a pile in for the kids whenever someone in the group has an appointment.

    You did a very nice job on this quilt!
