Hurray, I’ve completed my first challenge of the year for the American Patchwork and Quilting UFO Challenge! For the month of January, project 12 was called. My #12 was a Project Linus quilt kit that has been sitting in my sewing room for embarrassingly too long. Project Linus quilt kits are pre-cut and ready to go, so they should be a very quick project.
I got started on this quilt as soon as the number was called and of course, I finished the top in one day. I love the cute bug prints and cheerful colors, so it was a very fun project to work on. I love when red and green are used together outside of Christmas crafts. All of the colors and prints worked wonderfully together!
The kit came with fleece backing and no batting, leaving the quilt soft and lightweight. I quilted all over with some free-motion loops and finished it off with the bright yellow binding.
All that’s left is to drop off my donation at my local Joanns. I’m excited to finally have this completed quilt out in the world to bring a little joy to someone’s day. Looking forward to seeing what gets called next!
