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.

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.
