Charity Quilt

A shop I occasionally frequent - Echidna Sewing run a charity project each month.
Each month I say to myself - "you can do that"...but I run out of time.

The project for June was to make a quilt for Little Stars Kids.
Little Stars Kids provide Cuddle Cases filled with new essential items like quilts, pillows, hygiene kits, drink bottles, crayons and much more when they are taken into Foster Care.
The brief was to cut 16 strips of varying widths from 8 fabrics and sew them into a quilt.  Ditch quilting was suggested but I stitched a big 1/4" either side of each seam.

It ended up about 40" wide and 60" long.   I made a "boy" one as I know there will be plenty of girl ones.  We were asked to limit the use of overly patterned fabrics.



It was fairly quick to make and some of it came from my stash - not all as most of my stash is fat quarters with bits cut from it!
Perhaps one day I will make some more.
