Hands 2 Help

This year for the first time,
I am participating in 

 I have agreed to donate quilts to
Little Lambs and Quilty Hugs.

The quilt for Quilty Hugs has been started
and I am really enjoying sewing these blocks together.

A while ago Julie at Idaho Quilter's Adventures
made a quilt that looked like it would be so much fun to make.
Julie sent me the contact information for the pattern
designer and I ordered the pattern and templates below.


I knew as soon as I received the items that I wanted to make this quilt using
a variety of green batiks.
This would be a great quilt for a man or woman.

I began cutting the pieces and the sewing fun began.

These six blocks were the first ones I finished.
As of this afternoon,
all the blocks are finished and trimmed.
My blocks ended up being 9 1/2" square.
Thank goodness for allowing room to trim the blocks evenly!
Now I can put the puzzle together and finish the quilt top.

I sure have gotten proficient at sewing curved pieces!

to see what other quilts are being made for donation.

Happy Quilting!

Love those green batiks. Deep in the forest - that’s the first thing I thought of.

Wow...what fabulous curved piecing! Your fabric choices are so lovely too. The recipient of this quilt is just going to love it.

It will make a fabulous guy quilt. You have had lots of curve sewing lately and you are doing wonderful at it.

Julie said...

Wonderful! The greens are wonderful and will make a wonderful comfort quilt for someone. I didn't join this project due to the time of year, but I donate a lot of quilts locally. I need to press and photograph my Wizard's chest quilt. I'm excited to have it together.

That looks like a fun pattern! I love curved piecing. The greens are fabulous. I just joined a charity quilt group at our beach place. I'm excited to quilt with these new friends.

Wow! I am very impressed - sewing curves is my least favourite thing to do because it is so hard.

The colours are just beautiful. Almost everyone would love to get it!
