Welcome Home, a Quilt for Hands2Help

This is the second of my Hands2Help quilts; scroll down to see the other one.

Some of the fabrics (collection name unknown) were from a guild challenge/swap a few years ago, and since they have a home/neighborhood/park theme, I thought this would be perfect for a child in a family served by the St. Louis International Institute. Since I live in St. Louis, I'm happy to send my Hands2Help quilts to a hometown destination this year.

Although this quilt is a bit smaller than the International Institute's requested twin size, my SIL has a friend who works there and the friend said they can use this size, no problem. I'm glad. This quilt will soon be on its way to its forever home.

  1. What a sweet little quilt! The neighborhood theme is perfect for new immigrants, and how convenient that the charity is local to you.

    I'm happy to hear that the International Institute can use smaller quilts. I'll probably stick with the twin sized one I'm already making for H2H, but keep it in mind for future donations. Twin is about the biggest I can quilt myself in my tiny studio.

  2. How nice to know the quilt will be accepted and used. You are on quite a finish streak right now!

  3. I like both of your H2H quilts. Good job. I'm working to make one for the International Institute too, but I have to finish several QOV ones first. Yours are so bright and cute too.

  4. Another gorgeous H2H quilt. 'Love the fabrics and colors.

  5. I love it, and I'm so glad they can use it! Thanks for being part of H2H 2017!

  6. Great to know they can use smaller! I may have something I can send.
