-not too many pieces
-suitable for a teen in Russia (ie. a cold country!)
From what I gather, the kids in Russian orphanages use the same bed from age 3 to 18. Most people send feminine quilts or blankets, or kiddie-themed ones. So I would like to fill the need for masculine/older teen guy quilts, but I'm neither greatly skilled nor highly motivated to make an intricate quilt. Furthermore, I only have "spare" time (what's that?) on Saturday nights and Sundays.
Any suggestions for easy patterns you quilters have had success with? I know there's tons of stuff out there, but I'd like to hear personal recommendatinos on easy-to-follow directions or tutorials. I'd be grateful if you'd comment here. Thanks!

Let's see what have I been doing lately:
- Newborn baby hats for Mary Birch Hospital in San Diego
- Countless squares to put together blankets for the same place
- Working on a Lap-ghan for the Radiology Unit at Children's Hospital (San Diego)
- 4 crochet Fat Bottom Bags for the Susan G Koeman 3-day booth 11/4
What's really cool is I also organize a Crochet / Knitting meet-up group that has all summer been working on baby hats and squares for the newborn units throughout San Diego. The really cool thing is on Sept 27 we are going to meet and devote the entire night to knitting and crocheting to the 3-day!!
I know all that doesn't count for my 25 -things ... I'm just REALLY proud!

Also, I have created a blog for the 20 Hats Project. I am happy to have people join and either send me hats to give to the UNC-Chapel Hill or Johns Hopkins nurseries, or keep track of their own preemie knitting (the 20 hat goal is an individual one!).
