H2H Whoop


In the beginning there were 2 inch squares, begging to be played with ....



they grew into fun bigger squares , playing so delightfully with each other ....



they endured a hot, steamy iron over and over ....



then slowly, ever so slowly withstood the process of quilting ....



and finally finished!  A Postage Stamp Quilt lovingly born, ready to be passed on to Happy Chemo as part of the Hands2Help Challenge.



Normally I would cross-hatch quilt this type of quilt, but to keep this soft and comfy I chose to just do a single diagonal stitch.



And staying with the tradition of this quilt pattern - a muslin backing.  The surprise - I found a small paisley print with a lot of the colors in it and used it for the binding.  I hope it wraps someone in warmth, hugs, and prayers.

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon
