Hands 2 Help and a Change of Plans

I can finally share the finished quilt I made for Sarah's Hands 2 Help Challenge. The thing that changed is which quilt got finished. My original quilt was a blue and yellow Sister's Choice quilt (see it in process HERE) that was being assembled and quilted with a quilt-as-you-go method that is new to me. I realized there was no way I could finish that quilt in time, so it meant switching to Plan B.

I started this quilt top over a year ago, following a tutorial at Kat and Cat Quilts for her "Four-Fat-Quarter Baby Quilt." I scaled my blocks a little bigger, started with pieces that measured 20" x 24". My blocks finished at 16.5" x 20.5" each. After adding the sashing and borders, the top finished at 42.5" x 50".

This quilt will get packed up over the weekend and will be on it's way to Emily for Happy Chemo, to be given to patients undergoing chemo. I hope this quilt will help brighten up someone's day very soon.

Check out Sarah's blog page to see all the other quilts being donated to a variety of charities. There are over 170 quilts already posted to her page! Many thanks once again to Sarah for all her hard work in organizing the Hands 2 Help challenge!
