Hands 2 Help

H2H 2013 logo

This is my 3rd year making a quilt for Hands 2 Help coordinated by Sarah over at Confessions of a Fabric Addict.

I'm donating two this year, one for each of the organizations that Sarah has picked for 2013.

As soon as I signed up in March, I knew I wanted to use charms that I have collected from all the charm swaps that I have participated in.   I searched all my patterns and books and found the perfect pattern in my new book that I bought on Amazon.

Rainbow Stash Buster by Megan Jimenez

I love this book and have planned 3 different quilts from this book.  If you don't have it, this is a must have book to own.  I love to buy books that have quilts that have been made from people that I know or have met. 

Here is my version of the above quilt that I am made.


I'll be sending this quilt to Emily who organizes Happy Chemo.   Happy Chemo is an organization that provides quilts and comfort for chemo patients. They also collect up and provide information about freebies and discounts that may be of use to chemo patients. Emily has been championing this cause for a while, and has set a goal of providing 1500 quilts to Happy Chemo. She’s already donated nearly 600 quilts.

I'll be posting in a few days the second quilt that I'm donating as soon as my mom finishes the binding.  Yes, my mom loves to do all my binding.

  1. What a beautiful quilt! And a great cause. I love to hand sew bindings too. One of my favorite parts of making a quilt.

  2. So pretty! That turned out great!

  3. Beautiful quilt, i have that book and it is fab! I'm with Jodi, I love binding though, i can't believe you let anyone else do it, even if it is your mum!!! :o)

  4. This looks fab, perfect choice for the charms. BTW, I can totally understand handing off the binding, by the time I get to that stage I am so DONE with it!

  5. That is a great book and your quilt is lovely

  6. It's gorgeous, Cindy! I'm hoping to get a copy of that book soon - I have a feeling it will be one I'll use a lot. So glad you chose to make a quilt from it!!

  7. Cindy, it's gorgeous! So bright and happy. It will be great for someone undergoing chemo, bring some light to their day.

  8. Very bright and cheery. Someone special is going to love this quilt.
