    Well, I have finished my first Quilt for Kids project quilt. I am so excited! I think it has been 4 weeks since I received it, so I am not sure I will have time to finish a second one before my 6 weeks is up or not. I have a quilt for my BIL's 70th to finish before June 26th and haven't even started yet. So might just get this one on its way and then won't feel so pressed for time.
    I must say this went together very easily, and it was awesome thinking about the pleasure and comfort it might offer to a sick little one.

    Oh, forgot to say, the name is "Things that Go"

    Great job, Nursie. I also only sent back the kit quilt. I have to get some kids fabric so I can make my other one.
    You did a great job-your quilting is so straight.

    Good to hear that someone else only sends back the kit quilt. I have a ton of kids fabrics due to a Craigs list buy and do plan on making more from my own stash, just short on time right now.

    Thanks for the compliment. Actually there are some whoops places, but the bar on my walking foot was a huge help. They said they wanted densely quilted, so I tried to do that.

    Don't know if it shows, but I used a variegated thread on the top and I really like how it looks, I will be using more of the variegated threads. :thumbup:

    From what I have been told here on the board, you might get an email with a very gentle reminder, but nothing nasty. In addition, perhaps you could just shoot them an email letting them know that life has gotten complicated and that it will take you a little longer, but that you are working on it.

    Thanks, I wasn't sure how to quilt it at first. I think I will do close meandering on one of my next ones as soon as I get more familiar with my Juki and frame set up.

    Some child is going to be very lucky to get that quilt. I'm sure that it will give them comfort.

    Thank you. I hope a child finds comfort in it, but it is funny, I got such a sense of joy and fulfillment working on it I don't know who benefits more in the long run :)

    I like the fabric on the back too. Actually, it was the nicest to the touch.
