Quilts for kids

I first saw this on Amy's blog. After I requested my kit, I started seeing the Downy commercials on TV.

I requested my kit on Jan. 31 and it was delivered on Feb. 3. I finally got to sew today and the top is finished. She was correct that this is a fast to piece project.

I want to try to get to my local shop sometime this week and pick up some fabric to make another one. I have no kid type prints in my stash. I am also trying to decide if I want to quilt this on their long arm. At one time, she had a panto with indy cars and it would fit perfectly with this fabric.

If you want to help with this cause, go to


  1. I love it Melissa.I would like to make a quilt too. I am to afraid to commit. You know how fast I am.

  2. Melissa,I have ordered my kit.Hope you can help me if I get stuck.

  3. Very, very cute. I requested a kit almost two weeks ago and still nothing. Guess I should make one or two and send them off. :-)

    BTW, I was a serious x-stitcher for 20 years - even owned a store when we lived in Texas.
