We Interrupt Our Regular Programming to Bring You H2H Update v. 3.0.....0...

Hi, all!

It's that time again - time to check in and let everyone know how you're doing with the Hands2Help Charity Quilt Challenge!  Since this is June, it will be our last update opportunity before the end of the challenge.... Here's the schedule for the end of the challenge....

You have until July 31st, 2011 to complete your quilt.  
On Sunday, July 31st, there will be a linky party hosted on this blog 
for you to link up to a post about your quilt.

Completed quilts are to be sent to Judi at Green Fairy Quilts 
no later than August 5th, 2011.  
E-mail me when you are ready and I will send you the address.

On August 15th, we will draw winners for some of the prizes 
donated by our great sponsors.  You should check out the list of sponsors 
in the right sidebar!  You get one entry for each quilt you send, 
plus you will get an extra entry if Judi has received your quilt by August 14th!

There will be a special drawing for people who send in more than one quilt.  
Each extra quilt will serve as an entry into a drawing 
for a package of five of Judi's quilt patterns!

So here's my update, just in case you haven't seen it on my blog already...

I haven't mailed them yet because there are several people in my area participating in H2H, and we're hoping to send them all together in one big box!  But they're done and ready to go.....

So that's my update!  Please either link up to a pic or blogpost about your quilt, or leave a comment to let me know how it's going - as we said at the beginning, we know that sometimes life can get in the way of our best intentions, so if something's come up that you can't complete your quilt, be sure to let me know, ok?  

I truly appreciate each and every one of you and am so honored that you chose to participate in Hands2Help!!  You are making a difference in the world - doesn't it feel good?



Oh, and one last thing - if you didn't see my Wednesday post, you ought to pop over and check it out - I'm having agiveaway  for hitting 400 followers!!  It's open until Wednesday, June 29th, so go sign up now!!


  1. Let me know if a quilt needs an 'angel' finishing - mine have been done and at Judi's. I can't wait to see - although I have been seeing progress on many blogs.

  2. I have my blocks all pieced now and getting ready to start laying them out tomorrow and piecing the top together. Yay!!!!

  3. Darn!! I was hoping there would be another week until the update for this month so I could actually update 'something done'!! I have decided a sudoku quilt and will be cutting and piecing the blocks this week and hopefully getting the fabric for a border and backing with some basting spray on Thursday so I can prepare and quilt it over the following two weeks to send mid-July to get it through to Judi by the 'due date', lol - it will be coming from Australia!

  4. mine is finished, mailed and received by Judi.

  5. Yay!
    Top done! Next backing pieced and then quilted!
    Take care, Leslie

  6. I'm feeling a little late here reading these comments! My quilt top is pieced and basted. I have a few days off next weekend, so am hoping to get it quilted then and off to Judi by mid-July.

  7. I am so happy to be done -- even though I did not sew much at all this weekend, instead having fun with my visiting sister. I love your Saltwater Taffy!

  8. I'm a total slacker! I know I can quilt two quilts in one night, so I'm ok there. I was hoping to do one more. Where is that camera? Where is the cord!? Can't wait to see all of them. I'm already thinking of next crazy is that?

  9. Love seeing one of your older posts...for some reason I felt really inspired seeing one from two, no three years ago! Love scrappy backs!!

  10. I love these backs. I will probably make similar ones with my stash busting this year.


Comments make me smile!! If you want a PDF of a pattern, PLEASE leave your email address in your comment, or email me directly at salliesue57 (at) gmail (dot) com!
