A Colorful Quilty Hug


There is a wonderful event going on right now hosted by the wonderful Sarah over at Confessions of a Fabric Addict.  Every year she organizes a quilt drive called Hands2Help.  Hundreds of quilts get donated to some wonderful organizations and I try and participate every year.

I usually finish up one of my Rainbow Scrap Challenge quilts for the event.  Because they are so bright and colorful, they make a wonderful quilty hug.


I just finished up my rainbow zigzag quilt.  It is made with 2.5 x 4.5" rectangles and finished out as a 12" block.  And everything came from the scrap bin!



I had the perfect giant floral print for the back but it wasn't quite big enough so I found a fun stripe in my stash to run down the back and use as the binding.



 I could have created a number of patterns with the blocks but decided to just randomly position them so they create kind if a fun maze look.  I will miss making these blocks each month - this is definitely a pattern I would make again in the future.


I am sending this quilt off to Emily as a Quilty Hug for Happy Chemo.  She has been collecting quilts for years for this organization.


And the timing of this event was perfect because this quilt was my March UFO challenge quilt.  I am a few days late but I will still celebrate crossing another project off my list.
(Of course we all know that once a RSC quilt gets done, a new project is immediately started!)

  3. That is the perfect quilty hug! I love the backing, too - you find the best backings. I have my H2H quilt top ready to baste and quilt, and keep putting it off. (Typical me!) I'd better get with it!

  10. I love how you put the stripe on the back and then used the same fabric for the binding. Brilliant! Emily at Happy Chemo is going to love giving it to one of the patients. :)

  12. Lovely! And I think we can all agree that the best thing about finishing a project is that it gives us permission to start a new one! ; )
