Progress for April and Paying it forward

I've made progress on the April goal for A Lovely Year of Finishes 2013.  The Craftsy BOM 2012 is almost a complete top.  I need to add borders and then on to basting and quilting.

The intention for this day was to build borders for the Craftsy quilt top and to work on my donation quilt for the Hands2Help Project until I was distracted by interested in this blog post over at Confessions of a Fabric Addict.  Sarah is such a giving inspiration and in her ministry "Piece*Love*Quilt" her group makes quilts to give to people in need.  Fabric, quilt tops, and anything to help make the quilts is needed, so I went to work to find a few things to donate.  I will send them and include this quilt block, I made today, to be included in "The Helping Hands Project". 

The fabric is leftover from the Craftsy quilt and I have more to donate. So many of my online sewing friends are givers.  It's incredible what loving hearts quilters have.

Thank you Sarah at  "Confessions of a Fabric Addict" for all your inspiration,

I agree. I was amazed when I started quilting just how many people gave their quilts away. Now I do it ; ) lovely block

The Craftsy BOM looks incredible, Carla - great colours and really eye-catching blocks! And of course, I'm not surprised you are thinking of others ... your Helping Hand block is so cute :)
