Quilts for Kids

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.

Death Star

Ask for a death start quilt from Star Wars and that is what you will receive. Found a great pattern of the death start on Pinterest.  The fabric practically jumped into my cart at Joann's.  I used a paper pattern to trace the fabric and wonder under to stick it to the fabric.  I sew each piece on with my machine.
No death star could be complete without a laser beam destroying planet Alderon. Or is it Calderon. I am not sure but the young man who directed me did.  He chose the color of the laser beam and the planet.  Thank goodness for FaceTime.
Here is the happy recipient who I know will get many hours of enjoyment out of this quilt.
