Q is for Quilts

Q is for quilts and quilting. There is nothing better for a infant, child, or teen who is feeling ill then to snuggle up with a homemade quilt.

Quilting is also a great hobby for those who may like to sew. Check out http://www.free-quilting.com/ for some great ideas, tips, and free patterns. Consider making a small lap quilt if you are a beginner, and share it with someone who will find comfort in it.

Use bright washable cotton fabrics for those quilts for kids. You can also use soft flannel fabrics for backing making the project even more comfy. Send me your photos and we will post them here.

A handmade quilt also makes a great item to raffle off as a fundraiser to help with charities who provide research for childhood cancers and other childhood diseases.
