Phyllis has been sewing for charity

Our patchwork group are making little quilts for children that are removed from their homes.
When they are taken from home they will be given a quilt to take where ever they go and keep with them to cuddle.
This one was made a bit bigger than the others but I'm sure it will get used. 
It measures 60" squared.
Thanks Phyllis

Polar fleece on the back is all that is needed.
Quilted with a lovely cloud design

The idea was to make the quilt and finish it off "bagged" style.
Well that didnt happen.
The edges were finished off a bit rough.

So I have neatened it up by adding a blue binding.
All ready to go to the kids..
Any teenager would love to cuddle up in this quilt.

Looks great with the blue binding.

I had wondered about using polar fleece for backing for some of our charity quilts. Obviously it works! Although this is possibly not the best time of year to buy it - should have stocked up at the end of winter sales!

Yes, that one did need a binding. Weekday a wonderful cause! A blanket would be so good for those poor scared children.

I like the blue binding and what a lovely idea to make quilts for these children. Happy Easter Jo.

Wonderful idea to make these quilts for children going through such a traumatic time. The polar fleece backing makes it extra cuddly..the binding you have added finished it off nicely Jo. Where do they get taken to?

A very happy quilt for a special person to cuddle.
I always find it difficult to just bag a flimsy with polar fleece...
