Elizabeth's first thought was that his family needed a quilt. As he was a NY Mets fan, she wanted it blue and orange. Mets fabric is hard to find. I found some for $14 a fat quarter, too expensive so we went with blue and orange fabrics.
We also made a NY Mets fleece throw so the mom and baby could snuggle together. Didn't count the fleece in or out.
We took the quilt to the school so it could be on display for a few days before it is given to the family.
I am so very proud of Elizabeth for wanting to honor her teacher's memory with a quilt.
I have come up with my quilting goals for 1013 - pretty similar to this year's goals.
1 - make 12 quilts for QOV
2 - make 12 quilts for Ronald's House
3 - finish some UFOs
Even though I haven't met all my goals for this year, I am really pleased with what I accomplished.
Used - 445.16 yards
Added -111 yards
Net Used YTD - 334.16 yards
Quilts finished in 2012 - 47
My goals for 2012 are simple~
1 - make one QOV each month.
2 - make one quilt for Ronald McDonald's House each month
3 - finish one already started quilt each month
4 - if I complete the above 3 goals each month I can start one new quilt
