It's time to blog about the quilts we sent for Hands 2 Help! There were two quilts that I quilted last winter that were sent to Happy Chemo. The first quilt is this Northern Star quilt. I made the top to teach a class several years ago, and finally got around to quilting and finishing it over the winter. This was a Quilt In A Day pattern and used the Eleanor Burns Flying Geese ruler. They work really well!
The second quilt I sent was Mix and Match, a quilt I made last year in a Labor Day Quilt-Along presented by Denise Russert. This was a fun, easy pattern and one that I will probably make again with I Spy fabrics for my next kid's charity quilt. This quilt ended up 55" x 67" so it's the perfect size for a lap quilt. It's much prettier than this picture shows - the fabrics are mostly from Me and My Sister. I always love their bright and cheerful prints.
This one is quilted with freestyle flowers and dragonflies. A lot of the fabric on the front is flowers, so that seemed to fit.
These were fun to make! I mailed them to Emily at Happy Chemo on Friday, so they are supposed to get there by June 6. It's kind of nerve-wracking to put quilts in the mail - I always feel a lot better once they get there. Thanks, Sarah, for organizing this again this year!
