Hands2Help - Time To Show Off Your Progress!

Hi, all!

Well, it's Sunday again, and we're almost a month into this year's Hands2Help Charity Quilt Challenge!  Maybe you're like me, and haven't begun your quilt yet - or maybe you've already finished!  This linky party will give you a chance to show off your progress.  So link up and show us what you're doing!

While I haven't started on mine, I do know what I'm planning on doing.  My Hands2Help quilt will also be a design template for quilts that our church will be making to take to Ethiopia in October on a mission trip.  We will be having a family workday in May to work on making quilt tops - should be lots of fun helping new folks put their tops together. 

The top we will be making will be made of six 10" x WOF strips sewn together, then cut across the seams lengthwise.  We'll then insert a 5" wide solid colored strip that the kids can write a message or draw a picture on.  These quilts will be taken to children in an orphanage where our church will be working.  

I need to get to work on this quilt so we'll have the design worked out ahead of time!


So now it's your turn to link up and show off your progress.  You can link to an old post or a new one, or to a picture on Flickr.  Your choice, just show us what you've been working on!!  I can't wait to see!!




  1. I've posted photos of the quilt I'm donation. Maybe it will light a fire under me to get them quilted...LOL

  2. The postage stamp quilt is almost done - a definite 'finish it up' tomorrow project. Then on to the second one - which will go fast.

  3. 3 lap quilts are completed. 1 child's quilt needs binding.

  4. I've got 24 blocks sewn together but no pictures yet. Maybe soon :-)

  5. No pictures yet, but I just need to finish the binding! :)


Comments make me smile!! And I always respond if I can - if you don't hear from me, you're probably a no-reply blogger - so leave an email address if you are!
