Hi, all!

Wow, did you all come through big time!  We've had fifty-three people sign up to participate in this year's Hands2Help Charity Quilt Challenge!! 

I can't tell you how happy this makes me - and just think how many people you are going to make happy with your creations!!

A little bit of housekeeping - Anita SS, you are a no-reply blogger so I can't get in touch with you to get contact info!  Please e-mail me directly at so we can get you all signed up!!

Congratulations, ladies!!  And remember, all of the participants are winners, because Shannon of FabricNQuilts will be e-mailing each of you a digital copy of a great quilt pattern called "Charmed, I'm sure" and a discount coupon for a future visit to her on-line shop!


And now, for this week's Hands2Help event - I'd love for everyone to link up a favorite tutorial!  It can be your own, or one that you refer to frequently on-line written by someone else (be sure to link back to the original source!)  It can be for a quilt or block design, a technique (binding, spray basting, etc.), or even for a great snack recipe to keep you going while you quilt!  Be short but descriptive in your title (easy quilt, binding tips, yummy snack).  Join in the fun, and be sure to check out some (or all) of the links!

Be sure to come back next week, too - Amy Smart of Diary of a Quilter will be guest posting!  I can't wait to see what she has for all of us H2Hers!

Thank you again, all of you, for agreeing to participate this year!  Let the stitching begin!!  (And don't forget to link up your tutorial!)
