This year I decided to make a bed runner for each of my nieces and nephews. Since my sister has 6 kids it was a big project and I wasn't sure I would finish before the holidays.
The last quilt was mad using pre-cut squares and triangle squares that were left over from another quilt. The boarder is clouds and stars which gives the quilt a nice definition.

As participant in the 1 Million Pillow Case Challenge I was sent some great charm packs. I decided to pay it forward and make this quilt for Quilts for Kids. Quilts for Kids is an organization that makes and donates quilts to children in hospitals. I have made quilts for them before and after the recent hurricanes they put out a call for more quilts. The quilts have to withstand a lot of washing so I used a straight stich to secure the quilt sandwich. This quilt will be shipped off today and I hope it helps in some small way.

I am participating in the Pillow Case Challenge 24 Hour Sew-A-Thon. More information can be found here http://www.allpeoplequilt.com/sewathon. This is a great event that will make pillow cases for many different charities. I am making mine for foster youth. You can join a sew-a-thon near you, host a virtual one, or plan one in your own home. It is a great way to give back and lot's of fun as well. Join in! And if you do please post photos of your pillow cases in the comments section so we can all see them.
