2021 Hands 2 Help Finale

 We have been without internet for a week.  Although I missed seeing what was happening in the quilting world, I did accomplish the 2 goals I set for myself and completed a few others.  My goals for the week of  May 23rd were to complete another baby quilt for the Hands 2 Help Challenge  at Sarah's Confessions of a Fabric Addict blog and to make the Indian Star block from the 3rd installment of the Pieces of the Santa Fe Trail.

I completed the Indian Star block.

I completed three baby quilts for the Hands 2 Help Challenge.

This fun quilt used 5 and 2.5 inch squares of fish prints.  There are coordinating  tone on tone prints and a few surprises sprinkled in among the 2.5 inch charms.

The tops of the two other quilts were made last year and just needed to be quilted and bound.

I was very pleased with the star quilt.  I am usually a stitch in the ditch style quilter, but the pattern really pushed me to do more.

I'll be sending these 3 quilts along with one other and some bibs, pacifiers, stickers, markers, and colored pencils to Little Lambs.  I purchased 2 of their discounted UPS mailing labels that make it a bargain to send a package.  For $15.00 they will mail up to a 70 pound package.  

In addition I'm a sending a quilt to Quilty Hugs for Happy Chemo and a quilt top to Victoria's Quilts of Canada.

I am linking up with all of the other participants of the  Hands 2 Help Challenge  at Confessions of a Fabric Addict.  Thank you Sarah for inspiring quilters to help people who need a quilty hug.

I'm also linking up my Indian Star block with other quilters sewing along with Pieces of the Santa Fe Trail at Melva Loves Scraps
