Hands2Help Challenge


It's that time again.  If you are not familiar with Hands2Help, please visit Sarah at Confessions of a Fabric Addict.  Next Sunday, March 16th, there will more information on the three charities for donation as well as sign ups.  Please consider this as a wonderful experience in charity quilt gifting.  Sign up and put up the button and spread the word. Oh, yes, there are things to be won for participating, too.


On my design wall is the Goodnight Irene flimsie.  This is one of the quilts I plan to donate for Hands2Help.


After auditioning fabrics for borders, I thought I really out to keep to the scrappy, colorful design and went back into my barrel of pre-cut 2.5" squares and made borders.  Now to get those on and sandwich this up for some quilting.

**Linking up with Patchwork Times Design Wall Monday**

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon
