Hands2Help, 2021 Comfort Quilts


It's that time of the year again .... sewing machines are busy completing comfort quilts for the 2021 Hands2Help Quilt Challenge, hosted by Sarah at Confessions of a Fabric Addict.  This is my 11th year participating and I couldn't be prouder.  

With the Pandemic, I have a feeling this will be the largest collection yet.   Visit the Hands2Help 2021 page on Confessions of a Fabric Addict for a parade of beautiful quilts.


The six (6) quilts I donated this year, went to Emily, with Aunt Ems Quilts; for her charity Quilty Hugs for Happy Chemo.  A side note, Emily also has a You Tube Channel with Sew Alongs and tutorials. 

The first quilt - "Chunky Pinwheels, is a collection of 8" blocks.   Each block contains (4) units with the following pieces:


After completing the Chunky Pinwheels, I had a boat load of HSTs, which were a good size to make regular pinwheels.  The next quilt used all of those HSTs, plus many more from my stash. Doing the math, 208 Pinwheels from 832 HSTs!

Quilt #3, String Quartet (Black Cat Creations), used a stash of Kaffe Fassett strings left over from other projects.  As named, this pattern was designed to use those long skinny pieces.  


The last 3 quilts are from the "I Love You More" trunk inventory.  The free tutorial is available on Confessions of a Fabric Addict.
