Today starts the linky party for the Hands 2 Help Challenge over on the Confessions of a Fabric Addicts blog. I hope you had a chance to dig in your scraps and make a quilt for a charity. It’s such a wonderful gift to give.

I finished three for the Quilts of Compassion organization. All the patterns are available in my Craftsy shop.

From the Heart 
finished size 46 x 46


Giant Rainbow Hearts
finished size 59 x 62

Hmmm, now that it’s photographed that one odd red square is bugging me…


Scrappy Rainbow Hearts
finished size 52 x 52

This one is my favorite. There are inspirational words hidden in the quilting of each heart….Live, Love, Laugh, Hugs, Smile, Dream, Faith, Hope. Wonder if they will ever notice them.

Can you see “Laugh” hidden in there?



Then I practiced lots of little meandering and outlining on Bubble Bubble. The quilting is slowly improving….

Have a quilty week!!

I love these gorgeous heart quilts!

Sarah Craig said...

Such beautiful quilts, Carol, and yes, they will find the words in the quilting eventually - usually at just the right time when they need to receive a "word"! Thanks so much for participating in and supporting the Hands2Help Challenge this year!!

those heart quilts are so wonderful. I love the idea of the words quilted in the meandering. What fun once you find one to look for all of them.
