Hands 2 Help Finish


Yippee - a finish!!! This is my H2H quilt...  you can read about H2H, which stands for Hands to Help, over at Sarah's blog...  Confessions of a Fabric Addict.

Sarah has organized a big charity quilt drive - this one will go to another blogger, Emily, at Em's Scrapbag, who has promised 1500 quilts for a Chemo Center...  so glad to help, Emily!!


The color palette was chosen by my H2H partner Ruthie...from Design Seeds... she chose this: 


So I looked in my stash, and found some lovely cool greens...





and then, I discovered this:  a giant stack of HSTs leftover from a Bonnie Hunter mystery - they just didn't work there, but they do now!!


 And, boom, a quilt!!  And I really like it... Then I looked in a drawer, and there was a bunch of binding all ready to use - and it matched this quilt perfectly!!
Emily is only at 404, so you can jump in !!!!  Or join in H2H, and just sew fast!!

Happy Saturday to everyone,

Kate
