Hands2Help 2017

It's a good thing I got an early start on my quilt for the Hands2Help quilt drive this year! The top was begun mid-February and complete by the end of the month. Then there was the wedding quilt and a baby quilt and all sorts of other projects while it waited for it's turn to be quilted. We won't mention all the time lost to recovery from toxic exposures and other health issues (so frustrating!). It sat, folded up, for some time after it had been quilted too. I'm afraid that shows in this picture I took a couple of days ago.

65" x 88"

I have binding made for it now in a better color than I'd originally chosen (see previous post). It's very close to the dark color of the vertical sashes and border strips. I hope to get that on during the coming week. That should insure this gets shipped before the June 2 deadline!

For those who may be visiting here for the first time you can read about how this quilt was built out of my Parts Department in this post. I'm linking up with some of the other quilters participating in H2H over at Confessions of a Fabric Addict today. Guest blogger Laura has shared a nifty quickie quilt pattern too. Looks like a candidate for stash busting to me. ;- )

I love how you took your parts and made it into this special quilt to wrap someone in quilty hugs.

This is so special, and a lot of thought into how those blocks went together. Lovely sashing shows them off so well.

Louise said...

These blocks play together so well! Thank you for donating this lovely quilt to Hands2Help. Which of the three charities will it go to?

I love the warm, rich colours in this quilt, and it's another magnificent creation from the Parts Department! Outstanding effort, considering the health burden you've been labouring under.

It's so nice to have a quilter in the house! LOL This will be wonderful for the project that needed larger quilts. I know I usually make a smaller one, because I'm no adept at quilting on the domestic machine. Two more years and I plan to buy a used Nolting! Whoever gets this quilt will be thrilled and so blessed to have it.

This beauty will keep someone warm and bring a smile to their face. I hope you feel a warmth of satisfaction yourself. Job well done.

I love your phrase "from my parts department"! I think I have one of those too! This is a beautiful quilt and will be sure to bring comfort to the recipient. :-)
