    I just realized that I hadn't posted a picture of the quilt I made with the help of Cutebuns. Without Colleen's help, it would never have gotten finished. It was made for a third-grader in the Chicago area. Quilters for Comfort had sent out an appeal for people to make quilts for a project they were undertaking to make quilts for third-graders at two schools. Foolishly I signed up and then thought, "What have I just done. I've never made a quilt before!" Now, with the help of my younger quilting mentor, I can say that I have.

    Great job. I'm sure the child that gets it will be very happy. How brave you were to take on such a project as your first quilt, but you did a very good job. You must have a great feeling of satisfaction.

    Thank you all for your kind replies. It was fun making this quilt for Joe, but I am thankful for CuteBuns for the advice and encouragement. The redwork dogs were from Artistic ThreadWorks and stitched out great. I incorporated some of the boy's favorite things and was glad he likes dogs. I have a LOT of dog designs! 8-)

    Wonderful job Looks like you have been quilting for few years. That is a terrific looking quilt and such a good cause. You should try the Downy quilt's for kids. They send you the kit and pattern, you just have to mail it back and that is all the cost involved, I think you would love to do these quilts and they are very simple little quilts. Here is the link if you think you would like to do this. http://www.quiltsforkids.org

    You did a great job. The child will love it, especially since he loves dogs.
