Sarah over at Confessions of a Fabric Addict
Hands2Help Charity Quilt Challenge.
This is my 4th year to participate and the first year I am finished before the link up deadline. (:
Although I really wanted to make 2 quilts this year, I'm feelling great about finishing one.
I used 5" charms in Kona Solids (mainly colors from the Sunset collection)
and stash fabric (giraffe print and animals).
I used Missouri Star Quilt Company's
Wonky Star tutorial as my inspiration for the pattern.
This quilt, Happy Hippo, will be donated to
an organization that provides quilts and comfort for chemo patients.
I made this one for a child. It's so sad to think of children fighting cancer and I hope this little quilt can comfort and maybe bring a smile.
The quilt is 45" x 45" and is the first quilt I have quilted with my Handi Quilter.
I have another quilt top on the frame for the H2H challenge and another week to finish it so I may have another donation. I'm using this challenge as an opportunity to play on the long arm or at least practise some of the patterns.
Don't forget about the
$25.00 Fat Quarter Shop Gift Certificate
to be given away on May 31st,
