First quilt of 2010 complete

As I mentioned in my goals, I would like to make and give away more quilts for charity this year. I didn't meet my goal last year so I figured a kick start would be helpful.  I requested a kit from Quilts for Kids and got a package very quickly! Everything was already cut up into strips and squares, so it was super easy. They provided all the fabric (I added the binding) and the quilter provides thread, batting, time, and love.

I think I got the package on Wednesday and finished the top Friday night, quilted it Saturday and sewed the binding on Sunday.  It feels good to have one down!

Here is the back.

It is really cute fabric--cats on the front and little mice in a maze on the back.
They ask that you send one of your own quilts to donate with the one you made from a kit.  So I will finish up the other one I've shown and send these both together.


  1. This is SO cute! I love the mice fabric used for your backing.

  2. The fabric you used is great. I love the mice and cats. Any kid will love to receive it. I don't know how you can complete something so fast and have it look so good. I also made a resolution to donate something each month, but I am crocheting my items. So far, I have finished one baby blanket and hat.
