Night Night


At the March guild meeting last night, some of us turned in our Project Night Night quilts. A month or so ago, a group of members cut fabrics into 5" squares and grouped them for distribution. Those who participated received a packet of 36 squares; we were to assemble, add borders, quilt and bind. I chose to add seven bright orange squares to mine so it would be a little bigger.

Ordinarily I would reach for girly sorts of fabrics, but this time I took the packet that had the minions in it. It was a lot of fun putting this together and gave me a chance to practice my machine quilting.

Project Night Night serves homeless individuals and provides for little ones a tote bag that contains a blankie, a stuffed animal, and a book. If you think you or your group might want to get involved in helping this worthwhile organization, you can read about it here.

What a delightful and colorful quilt you've made for such a worthy cause. It's heartwarming to know this and other such quilts will add happiness and warmth to someone's life - and who cannot help but laugh at minions?!

Hugs!

Love the quilt and delighted to read that you are practicing your quilting.

I hope you will be inspired by the ways to quilt with a walking foot that I'll be showing you in May......

Love,
Judi

Great project -- I checked out their website and found that they actually have a couple of drop-off points/representatives not too far from me in San Francisco. Since I seem to keep making kid quilts to try to reduce stash, I will definitely keep them in mind!
