Hands2Help Quilts

Copied from Sarah's post over at Confessions of a Fabric Addict...

What does love look like?
It has the hands to help others.
It has the feet to hasten to the poor and needy.
It has eyes to see misery and want.
It has the ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of men.
That is what love looks like."

                                               St. Augustine  


I am honored to be a part of the Hands2Help project once again and I've made three quilts, one for each of the charities.

As you can see, it was a rainy day when I took these pictures, but look how green everything is in the background! I decided to go ahead and take them, despite the rain, because I always wash my donation quilts before sending them and I figured a little rain wouldn't hurt them. I'll post individual pictures later. (I'll probably just edit this post to include them.)


Because people always want to see the backing fabric used, here's a quick picture with the corners flipped over.


Here are a few close up pictures. I love the backing fabric and flange binding on this quilt! This quilt is making it's way to Happy Chemo


I don't know why I had this rick rack fabric (or so much of it, but I think it adds a nice whimsical touch to this quilt. This quilt is making it's way to International Institute St. Louis


I fell in love with the dark purple I used in this quilt but didn't have any to use for the backing. Instead, I went with my second favorite color, the dark blue. šŸ˜Š  This quilt is making it's way to Camp Hobe via Stash Builder Box


Amidst all the ugliness in the world today, it certainly feels good to be a part of something so wonderful.

Thank you Sarah for organizing this! Thank you to the organizers of each of the charities. And, thank you to everyone who has participated - quilters and sponsors alike.

Check out other donation quilts over at Confessions of a Fabric Addict. Be sure to go back there frequently, as people will be linking their pictures all week.

Love your quilts and where they are going to. Can you tell me the pattern you used for the one with the rick rack backing fabric. I am trying to use up some of my stash for donation quilts and that pattern looks like it would be a winner. Thanks for making your quilts and donating them. You never know just how much they will mean to the person who receives one.

That blue flange really pops against the pinks in the quilt. Love that little design touch! Thanks for sharing your time and talent with these donation quilts. They are all lovely :)
