100 Quilts for Kids

I love this event!!!!!  Katie at Swim Bike Quilt and the DC Modern Quilting Guild host an annual event to bring awareness to charity sewing for children. You can donate anywhere you wish and link up for a chance to win some lovely items!!!  Last year, I chose Project Linus and this year I am choosing a local organization that supports families that have a child with pediatric cancer, Project Fairy Godmother. I spoke to my pool friend ( I really only see her at the pool) that is involved in the organization ( did I mention she is AWESOME) and it was decided that I would make quilts for two five year olds, one boy and one girl.



When Dear Stella sent me all the wonderful fabrics to play with I KNEW that the It's a Shore Thing was the winner for the girl quilt! Happy, bright, sweet and calming all at the same time...perfect!

Here is the finished quilt!



I used Dear Stella Fabrics, Pellon Legacy cotton batting, Aurifil 50wt thread, and Kona white.

For the boy's quilt, I am donating my first wonky log cabin fishy friends. It is NOT SNOWING here, LOL! These are old photos :o)
