Hands2Help/Have Faith Pattern

It's that time of the year ... Sarah at Confessions of a Fabric Addict is hosting her annual Hands2Help Charity Quilt.  This is her 8th year and the contributions are growing in numbers with the help of so many giving quilters.

This year, I am her first guest blogger, introducing my charity pattern "Have Faith".  For the story and pattern, please visit  Confessions of a Fabric Addict.

If you have been directed here from Sarah, please feel free to browse a little.  Become a follower or add L'Fair Quilts through Bloglovin' (link on my home page).  

I am also one of the designers for Black Cat Creations and encourage everyone to find us on FaceBook,  a growing little show and tell community of our designs as seen through the creative eyes of other quiltmakers.  My first encounter with Black Cat Creations was the pattern "Short Stacks", designed by Judy Reynolds....and who has not heard of "The Big Block Quilt", by Minay Sirois?

Now .... a little "Have Faith" Show and Tell (the pattern is posted with Sarah at Confessions of a Fabric Addict:

Above is my H2H Charity Quilt for 2018, "Have Faith".

Donna's Black/White/Brights "Have Faith", donated to the Katy, Texas Floods.

A retirement "Have Faith" Quilt I made for a good friend, Paulette.

Tina's "Have Faith" quilt -- loved the bright yellow border.

A few months ago, our guild had a "Have Faith" Sew Day.  We were able to make enough blocks to assemble four quilts for Texas Flood victims.


If you make a "Have Faith" quilt in the future, please email me with your quilt picture and story (see profile for address) and let me share.

Thank you for visiting and come back soon!

Visiting from Saraha's, I just wanted to say how much I love your quilt and tutorial. I am going to put it into EQ8 and see how much fabric I need for a baby size with a solid background. Thank you for sharing it! I am going to start following you too.

Thanks for your priceless contribution to the H2H 2018. This is a wonderfully simple but so impactful pattern, I'll be sure to check back with you once I find the time to whip one up. I'm thinking red, white and blues.

Thank you for sharing. I envision many quilts of faith filled with hugs, love and comfort. You are a true blessing to others.

Such a nice pattern. I love the colors you used on the retirement quilt.

This is my first year for joining in for the H2H challenge. I love making comfort quilts. I think comfort is felt by the quilter as much as the recipient. Love your pattern and am looking forward to making one in the future. Thank you for sharing your time and talent ❣️

Thanks for the tutorial on Sarah's blog. I can't wait to dig into my scraps to make a few of the Have Faith blocks!!
