Annual Humanitarian Quilt
Every year our community gets together to make school bags, stuff childrens toys, donate quilts, and eat soup. It is a great time to serve others and to come together as a community and bond.
This year I was a little short on time so I did a quick fat quarter twin size quilt.
To make the quilt:
I cut 20 squares that are 18x18 inches wide. I wanted them to be square, but this would work just as well if you used fat quarters.
Then I sewed all the squares together.
My mother in law helped me tie the quilt
Then I used a full size flat sheet for the backing. Which made the binding really easy
I just folded over the sheet and sewed it down. I know that is not the "proper" way to do things, but it works just fine for me.
