Hands2Help - It's Time To Show Off Your Quilts!!!


"What does love look like?
It has the hands to help others.
It has the feet to hasten to the poor and needy.
It has eyes to see misery and want.
It has the ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of men.
That is what love looks like."
St. Augustine             .

Hi, all!

The time has finally arrived for the final linky party for the Hands2Help Charity Quilt Challenge 2016!  I am overwhelmed with gratitude for each one of you, who have become the hands, feet, eyes and ears of love once again through the quilts you have made for others!  Your quilts will bless many, and hopefully you have found blessing in the making of them.  Many of you have told me that this is your first experience making charity quilts - I hope it won't be your last!  Thanks to each and every one of you for joining in the Challenge this year!


So let's get down to business.  Between now and next Saturday, May 28th at 12:00 noon CST, please link up your quilts below, either to a new blog post or an old one that shows your quilt.  If you don't have a blog, you can link up a picture you have posted in the Flickr group.  (If you post your pic in the Flickr group, be sure to put your name and which charity you made the quilt for in the description!)  If you are technologically challenged, feel free to email your picture to me at salliesue57 (at) gmail (dot) com and I will post it in the Flickr group and link it up for you!


The best reason to link up your quilt is so that we can all see, admire, and be inspired by each one. But there's another reason, too - thanks to a lot of wonderful donors, we have great giveaway items!!  To participate in the giveaway, just link up your quilt or quilts.  Everything will be given away by random drawing from those who link up a finished quilt!

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

So now - it's time to link up your finished (or very nearly so) quilts!  The link will remain open until Saturday, May 28th at 12:00 noon CST. You can link up from your old or new blogpost, from a picture of your quilt posted in the Flickr group, or for the technologically challenged, you can email me a picture of your quilt at salliesue57 (at) gmail (dot) com and I will post it in the Flickr group and link it up for you.  You can email me at that same address with any questions you might have, or if you still need the addresses for mailing your quilts.  (And if life has happened to you and you're having trouble finishing your quilt, please email me before next Saturday!)


Winners should be announced next Sunday, May 29th. But please bear with me, it may be late in the day - it's a big undertaking!


I'm so excited to see the wonderful quilts you have made - and I hope you're all just as excited to see the quilts the other participants have made! Please take the time to visit all the link-ups and give each other a big high-five - you've done amazing work!!!  


Ready - - - set - - - GO!!!

Hugs!

Sarah

FYI - some people are having trouble linking up, which results in multiple entries.  Don't sweat it - I have contacted LinkyTools about it already, but I will also be monitoring it and will delete any duplicate entries.  And if you just can't get it to link up, email me at salliesue57 (at) gmail (dot) com and I'll link up for you.  Smile!!

PS - the pictures above are some of H2H 2015's quilts - aren't they wonderful?
