Default Two "Quilts for Kids"

I have occasionally made quilts for the Quilts for Kids organization. They provide quilts to hospitalized children, and you should Google it if you are interested in learning more. A local group has started up in my area, and I got two kits from them to put together. This coral/turquoise one was too bright for me. Look at those borders! I ended up using the back of the turquoise fabric for the sashing since I couldn't stand any more prints. It seemed to scream out for flower quilting, so that's what I did. The brown and green one has bugs and animals. I actually used the back of a fabric for the sashing on this one too. The large border is the same fabric as the sashing, and I thought it was just too much of one fabric. It got an all over meander with ruler work on the borders. Much of the piecing was done on my Featherweight while we were camping in our travel trailer but some of it was on my Bernina 440. The quilting was done on my Sweet 16.
