I hope you're enjoying the Challenge so far! Maybe you've started on your quilts, maybe not - everyone works at a different pace - so it's all good! Today we're going to meet the sponsors who have contributed some lovely things to thank all of you wonderful quilters for participating in the Challenge….
Judi from Green Fairy Quilts is offering a $25 gift certificate for her shop. And here's a heads-up - they are having a great sale on fat quarter bundles right now! (Many of you may not know this, but Judi was part of the inspiration for the Hands2Help Challenge the first year.)
Thanks to the recommendation of a fellow H2Her, Jaftex Companies is joining us as a sponsor this year. Don't know Jaftex? Well, I bet you know one or more of their subsidiary companies - FreeSpirit, Henry Glass, Studio E, Blank, A.E. Nathan and Fabric Editions. The folks at Jaftex have sent four jelly rolls as their contribution to this year's Challenge!
Joy Martin, who can be found over on Instagram as @themakingsofjoy leaped into pattern designing last year with her Scrap Mountain Quilt and subsequent quilt-along. She has since added another pattern to her catalog, Pride and Prejudice, and is offering both patterns to three lucky participants!
Bernie Kringel, who has a fun blog and great little shop at Needle & Foot, is providing $25 gift certificates for two lucky participants! Bernie has beautiful fabrics in her shop, definitely worth taking a look!!
And if you've spent any time at all on my blog you probably know how much I love Lorna McMahon's quilt patterns! She designs traditional piecing patterns that look a whole lot more difficult than they are, guaranteed to impress anyone. And Lorna is really sharing the love this year - she's giving one PDF pattern of your choice to every participant who finishes the Challenge! She'll also be joining us in the Challenge this year - I can't wait to see what she makes!

It's Friday again, and not just any Friday - it's vacation Friday! I hope you're ready to get your whoop whoop on - so let's get started....
We arrived at the beach yesterday (well in advance of the horrible weather currently plaguing the south) to this lovely view! I'm looking forward to the next few days when it isn't quite so gray and chilly, though.

Wow do you all rock!!! As of the time I'm writing this post, 242 people have already signed up for the Challenge!!! That is AMAZING! Now, if you're just now seeing this, it's not too late to sign up, and there's still lots of giveaway goodies to be had at the end of the Challenge - so in the theory of "better late than never", hop over here, read about the Challenge, then if it appeals to you, sign up and join in the fun!
And, as promised, there's a giveaway drawing for those of you who have already signed up. I gathered up some fun goodies....
