The annual Hands2Help Challenge hosted by Sarah of Confessions of a Fabric Addict has come to close this year and I’m happy to report I have three quilts made and will be sending them off tomorrow…whoop whoop!
You can read all about the annual event and the wonderful charities included this year by visiting Sarah’s blog
These first two quilts are going to Jack’s Basket:
I found the Simple Hearts pattern through an Instagram post and when it said it was fat eighth friendly I remembered I had a bundle of Wonderland by Rifle Paper Company for Cotton and Steel that had been sitting in my stash for far too long and before I knew it, I had a finished quilt!
The second quilt came about quite by accident from the left overs of the Criss Cross quilt I’ll talk about in a minute. I had triangles left over and just started sewing them together to make blocks and then worked with them for a few days until I ended up with this design.
The third quilt is going to Happy Chemo. I found this Criss Cross pattern through Angela Walter’s Midnight Quilt Show and immediately knew I wanted to dip into my solids stash to make it!
The cutting and sewing went really fast but I will add a little caution…once you get the ‘blocks’ made you’ll need to handle them carefully as there are A LOT of bias edges and they can get a little wonky. I had a little bit of that happen but thankfully not too much!
And that’s my contribution this year. I absolutely love participating in this event every year and Sarah is a great host ❤ If you haven’t had the opportunity to participate in the past I highly recommend you follow her blog and mark your calendar for next March when she gets things kicked off.
