It's Finished!

The deadline is approaching and I did it! 
Yes, the quilt is finished, boxed and ready to ship!

If you are new to this blog, I started a twin-sized quilt last January and I'm donating it to the Department of Social and Rehabilitation Services (SRS) of South Central Kansas.  It will given to an anonymous child who is living in foster care this Christmas. 

Several kind readers from across the country donated their fabric scraps and shared their own charity quilting stories.

I'm very proud to continue the tradition of quilting in my family.  I have cherished the quilts that my grandmothers and great-grandmothers made.  Even as a grown woman, I'll curl up in one of those quilts if I'm having a lousy day. 

It's one of the best feelings in the world.

I'm so happy to pass along that warm embrace to a child who might really need some comfort.

A special thank you to everyone who helped to make this quilt possible!
