Hands2Help 2021

 Sarah Craig at Confessions of a Fabric Addict has kicked off Hands2Help 2021, her drive for donation quilts to benefit a list of charities. And once again I'm participating. 

I have two charm packs that sort of coordinate, so I'm using them in a simple layout to feature the rainbow colors. Here they are on the design wall. 

I cut a few extra pieces from my stash to round out the colors and make the quilt large enough for an adult throw. Not shown here is the final row at the bottom, mostly orange prints. The colors are very saturated, much brighter than they look here. The alternate squares will be white. 

Last year I sent a quilt to Happy Chemo and it was given to someone in need. The organization sent me a lovely note, story here. I will send this quilt to them. 

This isn't a fancy quilt, not artistic or a complicated pattern. Just simple piecing, letting the fabrics do all the work. But if it can bring a little comfort to someone, that's all that matters.
