Hands 2 Help Quilt Done!

This year I participated in Hands 2 Help which supports charities throughout the U. S. and Canada hosted by Confessions of a Fabric Addict.  This year there were 125 quilters who made 416 quilts!!!  That is huge.  This is one of them.


I followed the tutorial that Sarah put on her blog named Irish Sixteens from the 2015 Sweet Sixteen QAL she hosted.  Instead of the red and white she made hers in, I choose orange and brown.  I was a little nervous on how it turned out, but it looks great.  I was able to finish it and washed it on Monday, and then the quilt was put in the mail on Wednesday.  The charity I choose to donate it to was Quilty Hugs for Happy Chemo.


The quilting turned out great on this quilt, I picked a Halloweeny thread and it turned out perfectly for this top.  It was quilted with simple loops, and there is a special surprise in the middle.  I quilted a heart for the kid it goes to knows they are loved.


The backing and binding is minions, perfect for any child as I know Despicable Me is huge.

This quilt is my third finish for my Q2 Finish-A-Long list, and it is number 18.  This quarter is tied for the most finishes now, and I hope to finish another two items if not more before the end.  Do you think I can make it?
