I've put together a starter quilt kit for my quilter friends who want to participate in Rachel's Give a Kid a Quilt drive. I have three kits all cut up and folded and waiting for you to make them into something gorgeous. Each kit will have a yard of the Joel Dewberry Ginseng, a fat quarter each of Bright Buds in Olive, Bright Buds in Aqua, Centerpiece in Teal and Acanthus in Orange. Now, Rachel accepts quilts in various stages of completion but her happiest day is when she opens her mailbox to find a finished quilt all ready for a new home. For a finished quilt, you would need to consider batting, backing and binding as well as the top, so you would have to add something from your stash. So if you were considering doing something for some one with less than you, this might be a fun place to start. Please visit Rachel's blog for details of her charity and just leave me a note in the comments if you'd like a kit!
