    Got my package in the mail on Friday. Woke up bright and early Satruday morning and got to work on it for a few hours before I had to leave.

    This is what I have so far.

    Package arrived - So excited!

    I really like the fabric too - the maker is Clothworks - Mayfly Mischief by Tony Fernandes in case anyone wants to know.

    That is wonderful fabric and you have done a great job. Now a question...
    What is the purpose of the white pieces of paper between the fabrics...?

    I received my pkg of 6 quilt tops. One in honor of each of my 6 healthy kids. Thank the Lord. =) Its such a great program and my girls are going to help me. =) What a great way to give back if even in a small way. My daughter the artist is wanting to design one of her own to send back with what we get done. She's a good kid!

    LOL - I put a "divider" between each of my stacks (rows) of fabric. ... I just grabbed the first thing I could find...and it just happened to be envelopes.

    Here's the link: http://www.quiltsforkids.org/

    I've been hearing about this project for a long time, but never really looked into it until recently. And since I really enjoy making charity quilts, I thought I'd put my effort to this one for a while.

    As the first picture shows, all the pieces came pre-cut...just have to put it together. You have to provide your own batting and machine stitch it up real good, and then return it. They also encourage you to include additional quilts with it.

    This is my first one with the project, and I plan to commit to make a few more with them before selecting a new charity.

    So, I'm thinking...I've never done machine quilting before...if I change my foot and drop the dogs, I should be able to do it, right?

    I've got some practice sandich quilts to try it with....wish me luck.

    I loved doing the quilt that I got from them and also sent back one of my own, but I was floored when it cost me over $10 to send it back. Is there a better way to send it to them. I used the USPS. Would UPS be cheaper? Any info welcome.

    I'd be interested to know too...I had planned to send it back usps, which is $10.95 for a medium flat rate...I'm guessing that's the best rate I'll get thru them for mailing back 2 quilts.

    That is wonderful to see more people doing this for charity. I make some quilts for them every year. I did one in the same fabrics you are using. It's fun fabric. :)

    Love the fabric, not sure that I like it for the quilt, but it's a very playful fabric.

    I made a small quilt for them in 2010. It was fun fabrics with fire and rescue vehicles. I was able to finish it in a little more than a day. It made me feel good, too.
