Project Linus. They collect handmade blankets to give out to children in need. My girls had so much fun doing the blankets, Emily said, "do you think we could do more?"
The girls cut strips in their fleece blankets and then tied them in knots. Emily did a little different things on each edge of her blanket. I cut their blankets to the correct measurements and made sure they were square.
This is the rag quilt I made, before I washed it. I was feeling good that for the most part it was square, and most of the squares lined up. I made one for my brother and sil's little boy and it wasn't very square at all, it looked more like I was trying to make it all staggered and brick laying kind of look. I got a cutting board, and I think that helped out a TON for this blanket.
Samantha and Amber even helped with my pins... they would try to pin my quilt squares and then Amber would take the pins out after I was done. Samantha mostly just took the pins out of anything she found and put the pins on the floor. She would say, "pokey, hurt, pokey, hurt" over and over again.
I am so excited! What a great way to get free tickets.
