Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? So Many Fabulous H2Hers!!


 Hi, all!

Here it is, Friday again!!  And you know what that means - it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on!  Are you ready?  I know I am - this is a special post for me, and one I am really most sincerely whooping about!  Read on to find out why - let's get started!

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

Last Sunday was the second check-in date for this year's Hands2Help Challenge, and I have been receiving emails all week from non-bloggers who want to share their quilts or progress.  It has been a humbling experience to see all these wonderful quilters sewing their little fingers off to make quilts to benefit others, and I can't wait to show you all of them.  Be patient - I made collages of most of the submissions, as many had multiple quilts to share - and there's still a LOT of pictures to follow.  At the end, I'll let you know just how many quilts are in this batch!

Amy A - for Little Lambs

Barb B - one for Quilty Hugs, two for Little Lambs, 
four for Victoria's Quilts Canada

Becky M chose to donate locally

Beryl R sent quilts to Quilty Hugs, Covered in Love,
and one for a Hometown Hero!

Bonnie C. sent this beauty to Quilty Hugs

Ceara N. made this one for Little Lambs!

Christina S sent this to Little Lambs

Here's a story to go with the next four quilts, which came from Connie W.:

"My four quilts to date have gone to Comfort Quilts. This group of quilters celebrated it's seventh anniversary earlier in the year. Quilts had primarily been for children and donated to the local Ronald McDonald House. Other quilts were donated to the local hospice and several area nursing homes. With the shutdown, RMD House stopped accepting quilts for the protection of its very vulnerable population. Our group leaders found a new outlet for the children's quilts, a hospital based pediatric office. Comfort Quilters gathered outdoors safely this week and submitted 142 quilts! The variety of quilts, fabrics, patterns and eye candy was wonderful and so inspiring. Here are pictures of the ones I submitted."


Deb S. sent these to Little Lambs


Heidee L wanted to share her progress!

Juanita H sent these eight tops to Victoria's Quilts Canada

Karen K sent these to Little Lambs

Kat S sent these two quilts, plus one other, to
her Hometown Heroes - her children's teachers!

Kathy W. sent seven quilts to Little Lambs
and one quilt to Covered in Love

Laura M sent this to Quilty Hugs

Linda M sent three quilts to Quilty Hugs
and two to Covered in Love

And now, another sweet quilt story, this time from Erin in Michigan:

"I dropped off a quilt top at the quilter’s at the very end of January - and was able to gift it to my daughter’s teacher just in time to honor our 1-year anniversary of staying home. Her teacher has taught their class virtually this whole year, and has amazingly been able to support these kids from their homes and kept them feeling “together” as a class when we had to stay apart. She’s our family’s hometown hero :)"

Loris M gave this to her Hometown Hero

Lorraine B sent these three to Quilty Hugs - and 
has already made up quilt kits for next year 
like the one in the bottom right!

Marilyn O sent these to Little Lambs

Melody M chose to donate locally, making
quilts for micro preemies in her local NICU

Michelle P sent two quilts to Quilty Hugs
and two quilts to Little Lambs

Nancy C sent these four cuties to Little Lambs

Pat E sent these two to Little Lambs

Pat K sent the quilt on the left to Quilty Hugs,
and the others to her local NICU

Paula A made these two for Jack's Basket

Paula D sent these two to Little Lambs

Sheila P sent this quilt to Victoria's Quilts Canada

Trudie C. sent these three to Little Lambs...

and she also sent six to Jack's Basket!

So, if I am adding correctly (certainly not a certainty because my brain is MUSH), that is 107 quilts just from non-bloggers in the last month.  I'll try to do a total of what has been shared so far across all the check-ins soon - it's exciting!

So - - - can I get a whoop whoop for all these fabulous (non-blogging but incredibly generous and creative) quilters?

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

And now it's your turn!

What's got you whooping it up this week?


What's making you do a little happy dance?

Share! We want to dance right along with you,

And it's always more fun to dance with friends!

The party will stay open until Sunday midnight.

Hope to see you there!

Hugs!

Sarah

  6. What Susan said! Whoop Whoop non-bloggers. I need to decide which quilt(s) go where and get them ready to mail. I just tend to make quilts and then decide where to send them. It is decision time!
