Quilts for kids

Last week I saw a post on Two Peas about quilts for kids. They send you a pre-cut kit that you make into a quilt and sent to children who are going through chemo. After just losing my cousin to cancer I felt like this was something I could do in her honor. I spent the afternoon piecing the quilt and have the quilt top 80% sewn together. I was a bit rusty, it has been awhile since I used my sewing machine. It is very relaxing to piece quilts, after completing this one I am going to start on a new one for Wyatt. This is what the quilt looks like right now, I never get to make girl quilts, so it's fun working on this one. I hope it brings some comfort to a terrible situation a child should never have to endure.
