The Hands 2 Help comfort quilt drive of 2022 is wrapping up with its final linky party. This year, H2H is being hosted by Mari of The Academic Quilter.
I've been participating in Hands 2 Help for several years, with quilts for Mercyful Quilts, Quilty Hugs for Happy Chemo, and Little Lambs. These charities are on the schedule again this year, but there's always the option to donate locally.
This year I'm donating locally. Through PebbleCreek Quilters I can donate to the local family services agency that serves victims of sexual and domestic violence (SFAC), and to Hospice of the Valley. Because these charities have been vetted by and are supported by PCQ, I'm allowed to use PCQ's stash for piecing and backings, PCQ's batting, and PCQ's long arm to quilt at no charge for any charity quilt for these organizations and the others we support. I serve on PCQ's charity committee, where my role is to plan for and prep for certain community service sew days.
Because of the connection with PCQ, this year I've been particularly productive. I've given three quilts to Hospice and three to SFAC.
Some of these quilts have already gone to their respective agencies. Blue Color Bars and Bolt of Lightning are very recent finishes and will go the next time our committee makes a delivery.
Because I have the privilege of working with the PCQ Charity Committee, I've been able to help generate more quilts for the agencies we support by creating patterns we can kit up for members to work on during Charity Sew Days. The Quilt for Kids kits have been very popular and quite a few have been finished and donated. Several Color Bars quilts are currently in work from our April sew day. The patterns are available free for any charitable purpose in the Charity tab above, below my header.
It's been a pleasure to create these quilts for the agencies we support and dedicate them to Hands 2 Help 2022. Check out the rest of the H2H quilts at the linky party here.
