Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? An H2H Joint Effort!

Hi, all!


Friday is here again, and I hope you've had an excellent week!  I've been enjoying seeing all the Hands2Help Challenge quilts being linked up, and seeing them show up on my doorstep!  It's been like Christmas every day this week!  (Be sure to check out the link above and see all the gorgeous quilts yourself!)


And my whoop whoop for the week is another Hands2Help quilt - with an interesting story!




Last year one of the signup giveaways for Hands2Help was a Sherbet Pips jelly roll, and the winner was P. of The Way I Sew It. P. made this beautiful quilt top, and then sent it to me, along with backing and binding!  She said I could keep it for myself, use it for the quilt ministry, or any other way I saw fit.  




Well, I thought I might keep it for myself (I just love Sherbet Pips!) so I put it in my stack of personal quilts to be quilted.  Then life happened, and it stayed there for almost a year!  But when I was cleaning out my sewing room last week, I found this quilt and the note that P. sent with it.  I had forgotten that she won the jelly roll as part of Hands2Help - and suddenly realized that this quilt needed to go to the NOLA Project!




So I popped it on Jolene Wednesday morning, and quilted it up!  It was fun to put little hearts in the quilting to remind some child that they are loved...




So this pretty quilt is really a joint effort by P. and me - thanks, P. for sending me such a gorgeous top and all the trimmings!  I'm going to keep some of the backing to make into a mug rug or something, because it reminds me of you every time I see it - that pretty little bird just like your blog icon!


*&*&*&*&*&*&*&*&*&*


So that's my whoop  whoop for the week!
