Hands 2 Help Comfort Quilt Challenge 2020

In a world of uncertainty, there is one constant we can all count on.  Sarah Craig, at Confessions of a Fabric Addict, has opened the sign-up for her annual Hands 2 Help Challenge.    2020 is the tenth year of this charity quilt challenge and it could not have arrived at a better time.  With millions of people hunkered down at home (especially those of us of a certain age group), the Hands 2 Help Challenge is the perfect way for quilters to reach out and help someone who needs a quilty hug, without leaving the comforts of home.

This year, Sarah has chosen six deserving charities to receive your quilty hugs.  The wonderful thing about the participating charities is the variety of choices of quilt sizes they are requesting.  Two of the charities request quilts in all sizes from children to adults and two are only asking for adult size quilts.  If you love to make small quilts, one of the charities is specifically asking for infant quilts and another is asking for sizes from infants through teens.

The charities also vary in the missions they serve.  There are groups requesting quilts for cancer patients (children and adults), for communities going through disaster recovery, caregivers, end of life patients, and for babies going into foster care.  I'm sure at least one of these causes will touch your heart and inspire you to donate a quilt or two, or maybe even three.

The initial signups for the challenge will be Sunday, March 22nd through Saturday, March 28th,  You can signup after the initial period, but prize winners will be chosen from those who signup during the opening week.  Quilts must be mailed to the appropriate charities by Friday, June 12th.  If you live outside of North America, you can choose to mail your quilt to a local charity.

Stop by Sarah's blog, Confessions of a Fabric Addict to sign up for the Hands 2 Help Comfort Quilt Challenge 2020.  You can click on either of the two links in this paragraph or use the button on the right side of my blog.  She has lots of surprises for quilters partipating in the challenge.   I'm already surprised by the challenge.  This is the first time in the nine months since the 2019 H2H Challenge ended that I have posted a blog entry.  It's that important to me and I hope it will be to you.

  1. Thanks for sharing H2H, Katie! I love participating in Sarah's charity challenge each year. I can't wait to see what you stitch up! Maybe it will kick start your blogging again. My own seems to be dropping off, and that's OK. Blogging secondary to sewing :)

  2. This truly is such a great project. I hope one day to be able to commit to more than one charity quilt per year. Sometimes retirement feels a lot longer than just a few years away...

    In delayed response to your question, yes, the Dharma skirt is the Caravan. Hope you are able to do something fun with it!

  7. Every year I think about participating in this challenge and every year I realize there is no way I could make and finish quilting even a small quilt in such a short time. Perhaps I should begin one now, work on it all year, then join the challenge!
