What was your inspiration?
I heard about this organization started by the corporation that makes downy fabric softner. They provide quilt kits to anyone who wants one. You make the quilt and mail it back to them. The quilt is then given to a child with a serious illness for them to use while in hospital and they get to take it home when they leave. My late husband was in a nursing facility and when he passed a quilt that had been donated was used to wrap him in for transport. It was comforting to us and I thought this was a great idea for sick children.
What are you most proud of?
That it turned out so cute and that a sick child will love it and get some comfort from it.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Just do it! It is so easy and I was able to finish mine easily within the 6 weeks they ask you to complete it and send it back.
