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?
