Hands 2 Help Charity Quilt Challenge 2014


I’m excited to have been able to do a quilt for Sarah Craig’s Hands 2 Help Charity Quilt Challenge this year!  I love that she provides this opportunity each year, and it feels so neat to participate in such fun.
I thought I’d try something new with this quilt and just did strips of fabric the width of the fabric. I have 10 different fabrics and each were cut about 6” wide.  It finishes at 42 1/2” x 59”.
  
Sarah gave three organizations to choose from this year, and although I would have loved to do something for all three, I ended up choosing to send my quilt to Happy Chemo again. I guess I just have a special place in my heart for people going through cancer and chemo, since my mother had to go through that.
 


  
I put yummy soft pink minky on the back, and quilted it with happy flowers all over it, with an occasional heart and butterfly here and there.

 I wrote the words “You are Loved” in one area, but it was hard to see it in a picture on the front side of the quilt, so this picture below is of the back side of the quilt, you just have to read it backwards.  :)

Thank you, Sarah, for providing this great opportunity again!!!  You are a jewel and I really appreciate you!!!
