I had a helper this weekend, what fun!!
These quilts are a nice size, 52x 62 so hopefully big enough and appealing to the bigger kids in need.  The pattern for the quilts is Charm Pack Cherry - Fatquarter shop free pattern Don't they both look so different.  I used a background fabric in one, the other just random colors everywhere.  I think I like it better without the background fabric.   The star quilt went together so quickly Big Star Baby Quilt Pattern.  3 more weeks to go  - if I can get this all done, there will be 8 quilts and 21 pillowcases - nice!!

Don't forget to check out the linky parties on the sidebar, that's how I found out about these awesome quilts!
