Hands2Help Quilt

Last year I particpated in Sarah's wonderful
for the first time.

Hands2Help is a way for quilters to
connect with and donate quilts to various
organizations that Sarah supports
or we can send quilts to an organization of our own choosing.

Sarah organizes everything and does a wonderful job.

This year one of the organizations receiving quilts is
Jack's Basket.


This organization supports parents of newborns with Down syndrome.
This charity hits near and dear to my heart
since my older daughter has Down syndrome. 
To receive this basket of love and support must be
like a huge hug to the parents of these precious little ones.

I have the top finished for one of the quilts I will be sending to
Jack's Basket.

You know me....
I do not make your typical baby quilts.

I had the fabrics for the outer square border,
but needed a focus fabric for the inside block
When I saw this awesome ocean print,
I knew I had found what I wanted.


The fish in this print are awesome!
So colorful and vibrant.


My husband always says my baby quilts will 
certainly keep the babies awake!

This will be quilted and mailed with the
quilt I made a while ago for a little girl.
A post of both quilts will be done once I have this one quilted.

Happy Quilting!

No apologies needed for your bright quilts. Just remind people that the high contrast stimulates the baby's vision.

Using that focus fabric to work from is a great idea for a happy baby quilt. I love your husband's comment!

Ramona, your baby quilt is dancing with bright colour and pattern. The ocean fabric is a fabulous choice. I can just imagine the smile on the mum's face when she receives your beautiful quilt for her son.
