    Holey Moley!! Two days ago I signed up for the free quilts for kids program that Downy is sponsoring and received my kit today!! It is all precut, pattern for a 4 patch squares cut, borders, backing and binding and a label to attach! How cool is that!

    Let's all post pics of our fabric here and then our progress. Sound good? I can't wait to get started, was reading the directions and I do have to cut a little bit but not much and the strips are already cut. I just need to get batting for it.

    I have done a quilt for the kids - mailed it two weeks ago. Everything comes pre cut, the colors are bright and the pattern is included. All I had to supply was the batting and mail it back!

    I am getting my kit in a few days, I love that they are doing it for the kids and it makes them so happy.

    I wonder how many they will let you do?

    Oh, I like the colors of the fabric. I signed up a few days ago to. Now that I have seen what we get I am real excited. I am also making one from my stash. It would be cool if everyone here would make one.

    I went to volunteer to do one and after reading the information was sad. They won't ship out of USA so I can't do one. It's a great idea. Wonder if there is a Canadian link ???
