Inspired by Kits: Michelle, Becky & 10 New Quilts

You have read about Michelle F. here; she organizes quilting parties and quilting kits, distributes fabric, inspires others and makes her own quilts, as well. Oh, and she also designed a pattern for us!

Michelle connected with Becky M. and got her started quilting again with one of the kits. Here is a recent note from Becky:
"...I’ve completed 10 quilts for Katie’s Comforters Guild.  I started out with a simple single fabric front and backing, self bound, and progressed into making various simple patchwork designs.  I used to quilt years ago and found that I had forgotten a lot of the math of quilt design, so this is good practice for me.  I’m also excited to have such a worthwhile cause to use up the yards and yards of fabrics that I’ve accumulated over the years!  
I have found so many good resources for project ideas and tutorials on line!  Here are a couple of my favorites:
This is a cute blog as well as pictures of patchwork quilts from a very prolific quilter!  She has some great tutorials, too.
Another site that I’ve found some wonderful, colorful ideas is one called cluckclucksew.   She has a tutorial for an amazingly simple self binding with a mitered corner that I’m using now.  It works every time!
I’m going to drop off the completed quilts at Childrens Hospital this week. I’ll be sure to give you credit for the kits that got me started!" - Becky M
Here is a photo of Becky's beautiful quilts:
Thank you, Becky and Michelle! Your time, talent and materials keep us going and GROWing - and keep the patients at Seattle Children's Hospital in comfort!
