Finished Quilt: Skittles

After binding late into the night last, the Skittles quilt is done.  I made this quilt as part of a charity drive with the South Bay Area Modern Quilt Guild.  Our goal was to make 31 quilts in 31 days to give to Jacob's Heart.  This group of quilters have some of the biggest hearts I know and it looks like we are going to meet that goal!  All of these quilts are going to children in Santa Cruz County fighting cancer.  It was incredibly emotional to make this quilt.  I hope this brings brightness, light and love to it's new owner.

I choose fabrics that made me smile.  It's named Skittles after my husband said it reminded him of skittles candies.
