This quilt was a cooperative effort. Many people from flickr land joined the group Quilting for Kids and signed up to make a block or two (or 3 or 4). They mailed them in to me and I made this quilt for one of the girls my mother works with in the foster care system. (You can read the whole story here.)
We used the tutorial at Hyacinth Quilt Designs to make the blocks. I then edited out the white sashing because I just loved the different shades of pink and purple mixing together.
The back was pieced using a few extra squares I had and a star that I used from her sister's quilt.
I wanted to have a little piece of each others' quilts on both of them. So there are stars and squares on both.
Here is the roundup of those who contributed to this quilt (in no particular order). Would you stop by their blog and tell them they are awesome?

Jenna - http://sewhappygeek.co.uk/(If I did not add your blog, it's because I didn't know it. And some of you I couldn't find to link to.) These quilts have been a wonderful experience. It's been fun to watch the blocks come in and my mom and I have totally enjoyed the process. I will be posting later this week about our next Quilting for Kids project. It's for the brother of these two girls. It might be more a challenge, because I always think things for boys are harder, but the colors will be black, white, red and grey. So get your "teenager-ish" fabrics ready and I'll start the sign up soon. Thank you all sooooo much, from the bottom of my heart! And one final note: The tag that will be placed on the back will say the girl's name, and then: "God has a plan for you and loves you more than you can imagine, and so do I.
