Charity Quilts

I am yet to make a full sized bed quilt but for some time I have wanted to make charity quilts to help those doing it tough. I haven't felt that my skills where up to it as I have only made children sized quilts and quillows and I still stitch in the ditch. My stash is growing but I have always needed to purchase supplies in order to complete a project. Our friends have recently had their first child - a baby girl named Olivia and I wanted to make her a quilt. Just as I finished the top a call came out on SCQuilters (my online quilting group) for scraps to make baby quilts. I offered to make a quilt and send it on as I had left overs! Olivia's quilt has prettier charm squares and they are all different but this quilt is made from stash so that makes it free doesn't it?
