Hands2Help Check In

Today over at Confessions of a Fabric Addict, Sarah is hosting guest blogger Kathy and an opportunity to check in with progress updates on the donation quilts we're making for Hands2Help.

One of this year's Hands2Help charities is Mercyful Quilts, organized by Bernie of Needle and Foot. It's the perfect opportunity for me to finish up a very old UFO and donate it.

This is "Bricks and Mortar" started in about 2009 and recently quilted.
Bricks and Mortar, 58" x 62"

Many of the fabrics were from my late MIL's stash at that time. The dusty pastel colors are kind of dated. Remember Seafoam, Dusty Peach, and Terra Cotta?  Mercyful Quilts are given to Hospice patients, most of whom are elderly and might relate to these colors from the 80's and 90's.

This project sat in UFO status for years because I thought I didn't have the skills to quilt it and didn't have a purpose (deadline) for it. Now I've given it the "organic wavy lines" quilting treatment, finished it, and will be sending it on to Bernie. It feels good to have this UFO busted and going to a good cause.

Check out everyone else's progress on their H2H donation quilts over at Confessions of a Fabric Addict. 


  1. Very nice quilt and will be used for a wonderful project. Happy Stitching!

  2. Well done for finishing the old UFO. I'm sure it will be much appreciated by a patient at the Hospice.

  3. Oh yes I recognize those colors very well! I used a lot of those colors in making the country stuffed bunnies, dolls etc back in the day;) Congrats on your finish.

  4. This soft, pretty quilt will give warmth and comfort for sure! Thank you for donating it to such a good cause.
