We started with a list of the names and ages of the children. Between the two of us we already had 3 finished quilts that were a perfect fit for younger girls and our friend "L" donated a lovely Winnie the Pooh rag quilt. I had a couple of tops just waiting for the right recipients (Arlie appliqued some bright circles on the b&w jelly roll quilt - made it look so cheery!). It was easy to decide what to make for the girls, but what kind of quilt do you make for boys, especially when you don't know their interests? Rag quilts fit the bill perfectly (I know I don't want to make another one anytime soon!). We split up the workload and just started sewing! It actually went quite quickly. I think it was because it became a mini contest to see who could finish their quilt stack first! It wasn't me in case you were wondering.
The quilts were dropped off to the Bear Clan Patrol to be given to the families. I'm told the kids were eagerly anticipating getting their very own quilt. Hopefully we will get to see a picture or two once they have been handed out to the families.
Now it's time to get some quilting of my own done!
