Hands2Help Challenge - Check In

Today is the day where we show our progress in the Hands 2 Help Challenge.  I think that so far I am right on schedule and have not felt like time is creeping up on me.  I have finished several quilts and have a few left to be quilted.

Top #1 is based on one that Tula Pink showed at last quilt market.  It is very easy to make and instead of choosing many colors, I opted to use different light grays as the secondary color in each block.  The plan is straight line quilting, which I hope to start soon.

Top #2 is simple patches using some very pastel, floral charms.  Instead of solid charms, I chose to use some polka dots which I think makes the top a bit more fun.

It's not too late to join the challenge.  I am choosing to make multiple quilts, but you can just make one if you like. 
I can't wait to see what projects everyone else is working on.


  1. Both quilts are going to bring comfort hugs to someone special.

  2. Great quilts, just waiting for someone who needs a hug.

  3. Top #1 is certainly a head turner, great quilt.

  4. Both quilts are great! LOVE the simplicity of both. These will make great charity quilts for someone that really needs one.

  5. beautiful! love the simple patchwork!
