Hands2Help 2017 Quilts

i save quilts through out the year for the Hands2Help Charity Quilt Challenge.  there is no rule saying you have to make them from the time it stars until the time it ends.  if that was the case i might get one quilt done.

below are the quilts that i have happily sent off.

this pattern is called 3 Layer Cake i saw it made up in a quilt store in Bend, OR on my last trip to Sisters.  the store was out of the patterns so i had them order me one and mail it to me.  before i got the pattern i bought 3 layer cakes because i assumed that is what i would need to make the pattern.  in short... it's not.

a fun twisted 4-patch that a friend of mine showed me.

i think this is the Mod 9-patch pattern from the Moda Bake Shop.

a pattern from the Easy Peasy line of patterns.

i found this pattern in a jelly roll pattern book.

self made cut and construct as you go pattern.  the fabric sizes that i had really dictated to the results of this quilt.  it was fun to put together.

go check out Confessions of a Fabric Addicts blog to see all of the other quilts that people have made for this years H2H Challenge.

Hands2Help 2017

it has been awhile since i have posted here.  ok.... almost a year but i can not think of a better reason to write a blog post than the Hands2Help Charity Quilt Challenge 2017.  H2H is hosted by the wonderful Sarah from Confessions of a Fabric Addict.  Sarah has done this challenge since 2011 and through H2H has donated over 400 quilts to various organizations which is simply amazing.

i have participated in H2H since Sarah stated it.  i think i met Sarah through an online bee block swap back when those were super popular.  Sarah has a great blog that is active and full of many fun things if you are into quilting.  i decided to look back on my blog at the quilts that i have sent out through H2H to different charities.







in all honesty i forgot about several of these quilts - the patterns and the fabrics.  makes me smile when i remember making them and sending them off to their new homes.  i really enjoy sewing and quilting and even more i love sharing it with people that i will never meet.  

i encourage each of you to go visit Sarah and take a look at the H2H Quilt Challenge.  there are some great charities and several quilt size options that i am sure you will find one that will work for you.
