H2H Kickoff Finish and More

It's that wonderful time of year when packages full of quilty hugs start arriving on my doorstep. I am ever so grateful to all the generous quilters that donate each year and for Sarah for hosting Hands 2 Help and choosing Quilty Hugs for Happy Chemo. I can't tell you how much each of these quilts helps and how nice it is to have a good supply. Sometimes we run a little low. To celebrate the kickoff of H2H I basted, quilted and bond one of the many tops my little group of helpers made for this cause. I quilted vines and leaves in this cute little pink and green quilt made from donated blocks. I'm hoping to get a few more quilty hug tops done during this drive. 
In addition to finishing up the quilty hug I made these three journals. The tutorial on how to make these can be found here. They are for a friend, that I have worked with serving the young women at our church, and her two daughters (who happen to be among those young women.)  They are moving in a week and we will miss them. I will have all the other leaders and young women write their good byes inside as a going away gift.
Linking up with Sarah, Amanda Jean and Cynthia to celebrate my little finishes.

  2. What a fantastic effort! I have had several close acquaintances pass in recent months from cancer - a most insidious disease, for sure. Found you at Crazy Mom Quilts.

  8. Both the quilt and the journal covers turned out really nice. I have a book that needs a cover. I will have to find some time to try your tutorial.
