H2H 2021 Challenge

This year there were 4 organizations  chosen for Hands 2 Help plus the option to make and donate to a local charity of your choosing.  Also a 5th option to make a quilt for a HOMETOWN HERO. 

One of my resolutions for 2021 was to work on some of the amazing number of UFO's I have collected over the years. I was able to use 4 of these pieces for the good of others in this Challenge.

This quilt went to Covered in Love.  A couple of years ago I made a version of this quilt using the pattern by Jamie Elfert for H2H.  I was away and made lots of the blocks while spending down time in a hotel room. In the UFO box I found a baggie of  the left over blocks. I actually put this quilt together and had 1 block left.  Follow the link for the pattern Have Faith Quilt by Jamie Elfert and its tutorial. She generously provided it for the H2H2018 Challenge.




This quilt went to Little Lambs.  It is made using a panel from 2005.  I don't remember buying the panel or where it may have come from but it is no more a panel it is now a wonderful completed childs quilt.



This quilt went to Quilty Hugs.  It was a finished top from a class I took a couple of years ago.  Why wasn't it finished? I was able to totally sandwiched, quilted and bind it in a weekend, DUH.



This unfinished quilt top is on its way to Victoria Quilts Canada.  This was the easiest of all of this years quilts since it was finished several years ago and only had to be stuck in an envelope.  OK filling out the post office form was a project (tee, hee) but Victoria Quilts doesn't need the quilts to be quilted.  They take care of that process in Canada to save us some coin on the postage.

I have picked a Hometown Hero and I was planning on making her quilt on Tuesday this week at a guild Challenge but found out today that the challenge has been postponed.  I now need to decide if I want to wait or make something else. My goal is to be done sometime in August either way.


Thanks to Sarah for coordinating this wonderful giving event.  It appears, already, to be another huge success.
