For the past few years, friends of mine, the twins, that I went to high school with, through their long arm business, Chasen Dreams. make sure the local camp, Camp Pioneer, that hosts Gold Star childern (who have lost a parent in the military) or a children of a parent currently deployed (Camp Purple), gets quilts for every child attending. They donate the quilting and batting, the rest of us make the tops, bind them, and sew a label on. I was able to finish two this year. The children pick out their own quilt and take it home after a week of camp. Donations are made so this camp is free for the children. Bravo to them for a big job well done.
Here are the two: the first pattern is Basket Case from Cluck, cluck, sew and the other is Diagonal Variations from jellyrollfabric.net The backings are a donation from a friend in Massachusetts.
