Default Quilts for Kids

I sent a request for a kit a few weeks ago and I just got an email saying the kit has shipped. I am excited to do it. Anyone ever did one before?

Yes, I did one and added three from my own stash using the same easy pattern. Shipping the 4 quilts from S.Cal cost me $10.

Done a number of their kits - quick, easy, fun. Fortunately for me their HQ are pretty local so I can drop them off so no cost for shipping. My LQS also holds a monthly workshop for them. I've not yet managed to work that into my schedule but I imagine they with the to/from so no shipping there either. And I just heard from a friend recently that while her baby granddaughter was hospitalized for either heart or stomach (I forget which) surgery, she received a QFK quilt. She is a fellow quilter and was obviously very touched by the quilt. There's soe QFK quilts in her future now as well.

Thanks ladies. I am excited to do it. Our daughter was in the nicu for 2 months and when we left we got a mini blanket that a local group made. I still have it and our daughter is 4.

I haven't tried a "kit" for kids quilt, I have worked with the Project Linus ladies and will be broadcasting a special "TV program about them in a couple of months.
Giving and helping children by making quilts is so satisfying.

Several dozen. I have 9 finished ready to be handed off on Tuesday, 4 more tops done and 6 more "kits" all cut from my stash. I make kits for a friend to sew and we both make them.

My newest Grandson, Caleb Austin, was born May 29th. I am now Grandma to 4 precious babies. I am so blessed!!!!
