Hands2Help - Time to Show Off Your Quilts!


Hi, all!

Can you believe it? We've finally reached the end of this year's Hands2Help Comfort Quilt Challenge!  I'm so excited to see all the quilts that have been sent off to provide comfort to people all over the world - you are all so amazing to have been a part of this huge effort!!

Just a quick note about this post - I'll be sharing pictures of some quilts that have been sent to me over the past couple of weeks since the last check-in date, and some "housekeeping" items at the end of the post, then you'll find the linky party at the very end.  So take a few minutes to look at some beautiful and inspiring quilts, take note of some important updates, then link up your own quilts if you are on social media.

Let's get started!


As I said, I've been receiving emails with pictures of beautiful quilts for so long - it's like Christmas in my in-box!  Here are the ones that came in since the last check-in date...

Barb N sent these; one for a Hometown Hero and three for Little Lambs

These three were made by Dar S. and were sent to Covered in Love and local charities

What a wonderful array of quilt-y comfort!  It's amazing to see the beauty and variety of quilts that evidence so much compassion on the part of the givers.  Good work!!

And now for the housekeeping part.  I'm going to send out an email to everyone on the sign-up list with a link to a Google Form.  The form requests your full name, and asks if you completed the Challenge this year.  If you are working on quilts but haven't finished them yet, choose "not yet" on that question.  I know you will send them off in good time!  The next questions deal with the number of quilts you made for each charity.  Each of those are required fields, so if you made no quilts for a charity, just type in "none" or "n/a".  If you gave quilts to a local charity, list the number in the last question.

The purpose of this form is so that I hopefully won't miss anyone who participated in the Challenge!  I'm always worried that in checking all the links and Instagram and Flickr, etc., I will miss someone's submission somewhere along the line, and I want to be sure that everyone is counted.  You are all so amazing!  If you don't see it in your email box, please check your spam folder - my email address is salliesue57 (at) gmail (dot) com.   (It may be sent to spam because it's sent to so many people in a blind cc.)

And now it's time for you to link up!  (The linky party will stay open until Friday 6/4 at midnight CST.)  Show off your beautiful quilts in a blogpost or Instagram post or Flickr picture.  We all want to see them!  And if you are a non-blogger and have pictures to share of quilts that I haven't already posted, feel free to send them to me and I'll share them in another post later this week.

I'm excited to see just how many quilts are donated this year - I have a feeling it's going to be a banner year!  Be sure to come back next week for the final numbers!
