Hands2Help Finish

It is Friday again and I have another finish to share with all of you.



Late last year, I needed to come up with some scrap quilt ideas to use up some of my low volume scraps.  I decided to pull my Two Bits pattern and start a new RSC quilt.  I would make the Churn dash variation in the RSC color and frame it in some low volume strips.  



I went with the straight layout with the blocks "kissing".




It used up a lot of my scraps and for the most part, I am pretty pleased with how it turned out. 
(I still don't like the gray pieces that snuck in but I guess I decided I could live with it as I didn't replace the blocks. Ha!)





I put a bright happy yellow backing on it and quilted it with some swirls.  I also joined a bunch of striped and rainbow colored leftover binding pieces to frame this one up. 
I had just enough and it looks great!

This quilt is going to be donated as part of the Hands2Help event going on right now.  

I am going to donate it to Covered In Love.  In about a week I am getting a big box of blocks from them and will be finishing them up into a bunch of quilts.  So I will just include this one (and maybe one or two other quilts hanging around) into the box that gets shipped back.


  

It is hard to believe that all of these quilts were all made from the same pattern.  
...and all came out of the scrap bin!



You can head over to The Academic Quilter to read even more about the event.

A big thank you and loud applause to Mari for taking over this event this year!

I love your quilt and kudos to you for helping Covered In Love. I adore her mission. Thank you for all you do to help Kat pull together so many beauties. I think the grey in your low volume scrappy quilt is a nice touch. I always pay attention to those antique quilts with surprises is them. It's fun to see how they used what they had and it became beautiful art!
