First Step Quilts donated in January

Donating quilts for children with mothers in the DCCCA First Step program is a new KVQG project.

The requirements for these quilts are simple: size can vary as they are for preschool kids of all ages, and they should include batting. Here are our latest donations so you can see that different sizes and fabrics are just fine:

Sara Chappell donated this quilt made of leftover blocks from another quilt. 
The pieced side is flannels, the backing is cotton. It measures 36" x 42".

Betty Wright donated this one - both sides are cotton. 
She machine quilt it with decorative stitches. It measures 37" x 42".

 Betty donated this quilt too, again made with all cotton fabric. It measures 34" x 34".
 Barbara Brackman donated this top, Georgann Eglinski donated the flannel backing, 
quilted and bound it. It measures 33" x 48".
Barbara and Georgann teamed up to finish this one too - it measures 41" x 41".

Some lucky little child will sleep with these Rocky Road to Kansas blocks, 
also made by Barbara and Georgann. It is smaller, measuring 31" x 31".

What kid wouldn't love to nap with this quilt with tiny Chicago Cubs logos in the middle? 
It's another by Barbara and Georgann, and measures 43" x 43".

Remember - you can donate just a top too. Several machine quilters have volunteered to quilt these quilts. We distributed donated fabric from Lorene Mosser and Barb Lynch at the January meeting too, and we'll have that fabric at upcoming meetings also.

Thanks to everyone for helping - giving your time to give comfort to these kids. There are 7 quilts above, our goal is to complete 10 per month. If you have a quilt or other skills to donate to this effort, contact Deb Rowden, drowden@sunflower.com.
