Easy Hugs and Kisses Self Binding Baby Quilt Tutorial

Quilts to donate

The Hugs and Kisses Baby Quilt is not only adorable but also a breeze to make, making it ideal for donation—hint, hint! The simplicity of the pattern, coupled with the Self Binding Technique, ensures a quick and easy process, as the backing and binding are done simultaneously.

Initially created for our Quilt Donation Drive during National Foster Care Month in May 2022, we are thrilled to extend this initiative into 2024. If you’re interested in contributing a quilt to children in foster care, click HERE to learn more. Let’s spread warmth and joy together! 🤗💕

If you’re joining us in the quilt donation drive, don’t forget to print out the PDF (found here) and include a note to Comfort Cases. This step is crucial for helping us keep track of how many quilts have been donated and also required to enter the Giveaway!
