Easy Peasy Kids Quilt Tutorial

Easy Peasy Kids Quilt
Here is my easy peasy kids quilt:

And here is how to make it:
Take one Jelly Roll of 20-24 strips. Cut the ends off so each strip is 40-41 inches long. Sew all the strips together. Add a border (mine is 4.5 inches wide on all four sides) and your quilt top is complete! This is so simple and quick but yet it is a mighty good looking quilt! My quilt measured around 50 x 57.  It can be made bigger or smaller by adjusting the borders.
Now all you have to do is sandwich and quilt it then bind it J Cant get any easier than that!
Kristy with Hopeful Threads is challenging everyone to make something for foster children or the families caring for foster children. (See my last post for all the scoop.)  This quilt would be the perfect gift for any child. Just make one and drop it off at your local children’s services agency. If you don’t know where to send it in your community I can help you find a place to donate it or you can send it to me to be donated. I am so excited that we are able to show children they are loved so much that a quilt was made just for them!
You can also link up to the 100 Quilts for Kids Challenge hosted by Katie!
I have made up quilt kits (backing and binding material included) in my shop available for purchase, or use your scraps!  I would love to see pictures if you make one of these!
Have a wonderful day and happy sewing!!
