As soon as I heard about it I knew I wanted to jump on board. I love sewing, I love doing things for others, so put those two together and you’ve got a winner!
The best part? You can request a free kit and they send the fabric to you all cut and ready to go. Fun!
The only problem? I am not a quilter. Just not my thing. But I figured I would give it a go anyway. Surely I can pull this off, right?
When my free kit came in the mail I was so excited. And really crossing my fingers that it would be cute fabric. It was cupcakes! Very cool.
And so I made a quilt…
Now here’s the thing. Remember how I said I am not a quilter? Boy did this teach me a lesson. I thought I was at least good at sewing but after this guy I am not even so sure about that. It was like I was a newbie. I was almost embarrassed to send this back in. It’s sturdy enough, but there are some ugly parts.
The good news though-once I washed it and dried it (per the instructions in the kit) it looked much better. Phew! Still, I think I a going to need to make another one just to prove to myself that I can do better.
Want to make one of your own? Request a free kit here. Not a quilter? You can also donate $$ to buy kits for others to make. So great!
