Friday Finish - Fancy Blue Foxes

I have started finishing my quilts for this year's Hands 2 Help Challenge.  An abundance of scraps that I received this past Christmas has led to multiple quilts for this year's challenge.

This week's finish is Fancy Foxes in blue.

This is the second time that I have used this pattern and have found that it works great for using all types of fabrics in my stash, both traditional and modern.  I made the first fox quilt using my orange scraps.

There is still time to join in this year's challenge.  Next week I hope to finish another scrappy, happy houses quilt.

Friday Finish - Quilts For Cure

Yay! I have a finish this week.  This beautiful and bright happy, scrappy houses quilt is off to Quilts For Cure.

This quilt is made entirely from donated scraps that I asked for Christmas.  It is so bright and cheerful and is off to hopefully spread some quilty joy to a child fighting against cancer.

Hands 2 Help Challenge 2017

One of my favorite times of the quilt year is the Hands to Help Challenge (H2H) and this will be my fifth year participating.  There are 3 charities this year and I hope to have quilts for each of them.

Confessions Of A Fabric Addict

For Christmas I asked for scraps, and wow did I get a lot of scraps!  Plenty of beautiful fabric, just perfect for H2H quilts.

This week, I finished the quilting on the first of two happy, scrappy houses quilts.  I just need to finish the binding and hopefully I will have a finish this week.

Also while making my challenge quilts, I somehow decided that I had to immediately take control of the overload of scrappy strings.  Soon there will be a huge stack of string blocks on the way to Covered in Love.  These are surprisingly fast to make.
