Hands 2 Help Challenge and May Wrap Up

My apologies to anyone who placed their name in the Christmas panel giveaway.  I haven't had access to my blog so I will post the winner tomorrow.
Unfortunately, my knees did not allow me to baste any quilts during May, but I did manage to complete 2 quilt tops.  I am sending four quilt tops to Sarah, at Confessions of a Fabric Addict, for the Hands to Help Challenge that she will quilt on her long arm.  I will be mailing the Gum Drop 3 quilt, Rainbow Postage Stamp quilt, and Film at Five, and Ground Cover, the two I finished in May.
 Gum Drop Three-56 x 70.

 Rainbow Postage Stamp, using blocks made for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge in 2013-
 64 X 80.
Film at Five was completed in May- 54 x 70.

 I also finished the Ground Cover quilt top in May, 68 x 85. There are 9 additional blocks that can be used on the back.

I am linking up with other participants in the Hands 2 Help Challenge.  I'm disappointed that I wasn't able to quilt my tops, but I'm grateful that Sarah will be quilting them on Jolene her long arm and using them as part of her church's mission trip to New Jersey to help victims of Hurricane Sandy.

As part of the 350 Blocks Project for 2014 at Prairie Moon Quilts, I finished 111 quilt blocks.


  1. They are all lovely and I am sure Sarah or one of her helpers will certainly finish them off to contribute to the victims of Hurrican Sandy.

  2. Such beautiful quilts, Katie! I'd be hard pressed to pick a favorite - each time I think one is my favorite, I see the next and I change my mind! Thank you so much for participating in the Challenge again this year! See you next year!

  3. They are all gorgeous! I'm a scrap lover too!

  4. Oh my goodness! They are all just beautiful!

  5. Wow those are all so beautiful. I really like the rainbow postage stamp, stunning.

  6. Oh My! They are all beautiful!! I now I've add yet even more quilts to make to my list.

  7. My Goodness. They are all beautiful. I love colorful, scrappy fun quilts and these are awesome. Film at Five and Gum Drop especially.
    Oh well. More quilts to add to my bucket list : )
