I made this quilt from fabric provided by Quilts for Kids. I had seen another crafster post and was inspired to sign up with this wonderful organization. When you receive your quilt kit, there's a little note enclosed, challenging you to make one or two additional quilts.


So, I dug through my fabric collection and put together this quilt at the same time. It was fun to make two at a time. Also fun to make a "boy" quilt -- the racecar one and a "girl" quilt -- the floral one.

The back has a hidden kitty...for warm feet!

Did you mean to post this in the post for this charity?  You can move it yourself if you'd like to be part of this group!  More people will probably see it there--cute kitty detail, btw! Cheesy
