Every year Sarah from Confessions of a Fabric Addict organizes the Hands to Help Charity Quilt Challenge to encourage quilters everywhere to do a bit more charity quilting. She usually has a list of 5 or 6 charities that could use our support.
One of those charities is here in Canada and is a bit different from the others. Linda Miller collects quilt tops along with an extra block. Then a group of volunteers from one of the Ontario chapter of Victoria’s Quilts Canada finish the tops and make a presentation bag with the extra 12 1/2” block. It makes it so much easier for us to send multiple quilt tops.
I also send orphan blocks to Linda as she also has a couple of extra charities she works with.
So far I have these tops finished and ready to go to Linda, but I’d like to get a few more finished:
These next blocks should be another finished quilt top next week:
It’s fun to see how quickly these tops can come together since I have my precut 2” and 2 1/2” squares and leftover hst’s ready to go in my scrap storage system.
