DWM 5/19/14: A little charity quilt

The guild that I belong to is starting a charity project. The organizations that will receive our quilts are still to be finalized, but likely will be the U City PD (kids' quilts for when the officers unfortunately have to remove children from a bad situation) and the Missouri Veterans Home of STL (wheel-chair size quilts for veterans).

Last week I started playing with bright colored patches and came up with this little top, shown here on my design wall:
Now it's a finish!  For anyone who might be interested, I put together a little tutorial for it, which you can find here.

Linking up with Judy at Patchwork Times - check out everyone's design walls over there!


  1. That is one cute child's quilt. My guild has recently added nursing home for our charity quilts. I'm curious what size your quilts are suppose to be for the veterans?

  2. Love the back and the striped border and binding :)

  3. It's so pretty! I love that it could be an I Spy quilt for kids with novelty fabrics. Great design.
