Quilts for Kids

Here you see a bunch of quilts and quilt tops which I have made for kids through various programs. I'll try to remember where they are each going.

These four are going to Wrap-a-Smile, for kids going through cleft lip/cleft palette surgery.

These next four are going to Margaret's Hope Chest. They support various programs for kids/moms/dads in the Grand Rapids, Michigan area.

The next five are going to Quilts Beyond Borders, a group that sends quilts to underserved areas globally, such as Syrian refugees and to orphanages in Ethiopia. You may notice that theses are very similar. They are all made from a similar pattern which an online guild chose for a summer project in 2015. We were quite successful and since it started we have made well over 100 of these quilts. They're quick, easy, and attractive.

    1. Cut two pieces 5.5"x6.5" . cut one piece 4.5"x10.5". Sew them together to make a 10.5" block. Refer to the pictures to see the block. super easy. Have fun!
