H2H Roundup

This year I did get an early start to the quilts I wanted to donate to my chosen charities. I support Victoria’s Quilts Canada which provides comfort quilts to Cancer patients. This year I am also providing some quilt tops to Quilts For Survivors which provides comfort quilts to people who were forced in to the Residential School system. Both charities hold a special place in my heart having family and friends who had their own cancer journeys; some of whom did survive, and the horrific discover of so many unmarked children’s graves at some of the school sites here in Canada.

Early in the year, I completed this quilt top:

Made with leftover bits that were donated by Denise and some fabric from my stash, Starry Skies is going to Victoria’s Quilts Canada along with backing and binding. They quilt them so we only need to send the flimsy and an extra 12 1/2” block for them to make a presentation bag. I try to include the backing and binding as well.

Next on my list was this fun, bright quilt top I made which I call “Sticks and Stones”:

For this quilt my goal was to use some “bricks and stones” which were leftovers from 2 1/2” strips used in other projects. I enjoy using grey as my neutral for sashing strips in between my rows to get the quilt to the exact size I needed. This one is going to Quilts For Survivors. Orange is their theme colour. A flannel backing and grey binding is included. This organization takes quilt tops, blocks or finished quilts.

The next flimsy was made for one of the blog hops I participated in with a goal to having it be a quilt for Grace. Since we lost Grace I will be donating it.

Hourglass blocks and a fun grey sashing made it bright and fun and I named it Scattered Time. This one is going to Quilts for Survivors along with backing and binding.

My final quilt that I managed to finish before our world fell apart was this pretty quilt:

Somehow I forgot to get a photo of the finished quilt which was made from these donated blocks from Denise. The blocks were sewn together and I added a 2 1/2” border of white, a 3 1/2” border of a pretty blue that almost perfectly matched the blue in the block, and a 4 1/2” border of the pink/purple colour. I mitered the corners and had enough of a print with the blue, green, fuscia and purple to include the binding. This is being sent to Victoria’s Quilts Canada.

I had planned on making a couple of more quilt tops to donate, but my sewing time has been limited for the past couple of months. I have finally started sewing again so will try to get more done this year for these two amazing charities.

This week I’ll also link this post to Mari’s Round-Up gathering showcasing more of the quilts being donated as part of Hands 2 Help 2022.

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.
