Hands2Help Comfort Quilt Challenge

Starting in 2011 Sarah from Confessions of a Fabric Addict has hosted this challenge to provide quilts to various charities.

2011: 47 quilters made 60 quilts

2012: 55 quilters made 94 quilts

2013: 65 quilters made 127 quilts

2014: 70 quilters made 145 quilts


2015: 67 quilters made 147 quilts


2016: 104 quilters made 194 quilts


2017: 125 quilters made 267 quilts


2018: 150 quilters made 416 quilts


2019: 200 quilters made 876 quilts

Sarah compiles a list of charities which need help. I emailed Sarah to see if she has a Canadian charity that I could support since cross border shipping is difficult these days and very expensive. She put me in touch with Linda Miller who will collect the donations for Victoria’s Quilts Canada. They ask for quilt tops, the binding and an extra 12 1/2” block to be sent. They sandwich, quilt and bind the top and make a presentation bag with the extra block.

As of today I have 3 quilt tops ready to go. I have also made an extra block which will be made in to a presentation bag and the binding for the quilt.

I have been fondling fabric and creating things with fabric and fiber for as long as I can remember. My children had homemade clothes, blankets, canning and quilts most of their lives. Now I create goodies to share! Hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoy making them! When I am not creating with fiber or fabric I keep busy with Dear Heart, kids, grandkids, great grandkids.

    1. Thank you Susan 😊You can’t relearn longarming, be a caregiver to an invalid, reorganize your home and keep up with blogging and quilting while being in self isolation or preparing to come out of isolation. I learned this past week to slow down. 😷 Carol

  1. Hi Carol! What beautiful quilts for the H2H charity donations. I especially love the first one with the wonky blocks and the wonky border. It’s very fun. ~smile~ Roseanne
