H2H Challenge Quilts 2018

The Hands to Help challenge has come to an end, and I can't believe it. Time went so fast, I didn't even get myself organized enough to make more than just one for this year, and the one I made was just accidentally made at the right size. I didn't manage to really plan-fully make ANY for this year's challenge. Bummer. But... I am turning in two quilts. How, you make ask?

Well, I did finish the one top just as the challenge was announced, and it was the perfect size. And I got to mail it without quilting it. Yay! Even then it took me at least a month to get organized enough to mail it off. This one went to Victoria's Quilts in Canada, for someone who has cancer.


Then I was wishing I could quickly churn out another one at the very end of the challenge, but that's impossible.. so I am donating this one which a friend made. She made it and gave it to me to donate where I wish. I plan to send this one to Little Lambs for a foster child. (Thanks, Karen.) I will get it in Monday's mail!


Man, working at this rate, I better start organizing myself for next year. Starting now may mean I will get something done just barely in time for the end of next year's challenge! Anyway, it's fun. I always enjoy participating in the H2H challenge and plan to again next year. Will you join us? There are even prizes!

Your pretty quilts will be appreciated no matter when they were made. My H2H donation was not made within the specific timeframe this year either. Sometimes life has other plans, but it's great we can still contribute what we can to help others!

That's right, Carol - there is no specific timeframe for making H2H quilts - many people start right after the end of one year's Challenge making quilts for the next year! Yours are beautiful, and will be greatly appreciated!!

I was thinking the same thing. The deadline sure does sneak up fast doesn't it.

I really like your top for Victoria's quilts! So sunny and happy, sure to warm a heart and a lap :)

Beautiful quilt. One of the quilts I donated this year was sewn up last year. I think have some on hand for a good cause is a smart way to keep up. Your quilt is lovely, too.

Nice, and how sweet of your friend to donate a quilt too! I work on charity quilts throughout the year it doesn't matter when they are made. It's great to be able to just pull one off the shelf to donate to H2H. It's my 5th year, and it's so fun to be a part of this.

Beautiful quilt top. The right size means it was meant to be for Victoria’s quilts. How neat that your friend teamed up with you to contribute such a cute quilt for Little Lambs, too!
