Hello There June!

Well it's June 1st already...I'm not sure how that happened.  May sure did fly by!!  I didn't make much sewing progress in May but I did finish a few other projects.  As for June, I sure have my work cut out for me!  I think my motto for June will be "oh boy, what did I get myself into!"

I now have THREE faux chenille baby blankets to make and I'm trying to get one done in two weeks!!  I need to get moving here!

Yesterday I received my quilting pack from Downy Quilts for Kids that needs to be completed and returned within 4-6 weeks.  If you haven't heard of the Downy Quilts for Kids program, head over to their website HERE and check it out.  I can't remember how I found this program (somewhere between my blog and pinterest hopping) but I'm glad I found it!  It is such a great program!  If you want to make a quilt for the program, all you do is sign up with your information and they will send you the quilting kit (the only thing you need to buy is the thread and batting) with directions and once you are finished you send them back the quilt and they distribute their finished quilts to various hospitals.  Since they provide the materials they ask that you kindly send one of your own quilts along to help with costs.  Since this will be my first "real" quilt, I am just going to send a donation along that will cover the cost of the quilt materials.  Next time I will send a second quilt along with the provided kit.  Anywho here is the kit they sent me!

I'll be updating on the progress of this project since it is my first "real" quilt.

Since it's a new month I'm linking up to the Fresh Sewing Day & Small Blog Meet over at Lily's Quilts again! Yay!

Lily's Quilts

I just love reading all of her posts over there.  She makes BEAUTIFUL quilts (I'm super envious!) and she really loves reaching out to the bloggy world by hosting these linky parties.  So head on over there and see what others have been working on and visit those Small Bloggers as well!

Oh yeah, Happy Friday!


  1. Hadn't heard about Quilts for Kids before, looking forward to seeing how yours goes, what a fab cause. Popped over from Lily's Quilts to say hi as part of the Small Blog Meet :)

  2. have you decided what pattern to use?

    1. Actually, they send along a pattern and instructions to follow with every quilt pack, so I'm lucky I don't have to decide on what kind of pattern to do. Thanks for stopping by JoAnne!

  3. love that animal fabric, it is going to be lovely!
    Popped in from Lily's small blog meet, hi!

    1. I love the fabric they sent! I just think it is absolutely adorable and I can't wait until I finish it. Thanks for stopping by!


I love getting comments from everyone. Please let me know what you think, don't be shy!
