At the beginning of 2022, I decided to pull out an old Work-in-Progress to make a 60″ x 60″ quilt for a donation quilt for the 2022 Hands2Help Comfort Quilt Challenge. I was a part of Alyce@ Blossom Heart Quilts‘ Bee Hive for three years and in 2019, I had Bee Hive members make scrappy Treasure Hunt block units that I used in this quilt (read the details about these blocks here).
I sent it to Amy@Amy’s Creative Side to quilt one of my favorite quilting designs–diagonal plaid, and I really like how this quilting complements the piecing.
Originally I was going to donate the quilt to one of the charities listed on the Hands 2 Help Kickoff post on Mari@The Academic Quilter’s blog. But this spring we’ve had some terrible wildfires in northern New Mexico, and one of my former graduate program professors lost everything in one of the fires, so I decided to donate this quilt to her. I gave it to Linda a couple weeks ago, and she was very grateful for it.
Linking up to The Academic Quilter: Hands 2 Help Final Link Party.
What a lovely donation quilt, and how thoughtful of you to give it to her. The colors in the quilt are so pretty!
Gosh that’s so pretty – love the colors! Warms my heart that you gave it to someone who lost everything. 🙂 I love that diagonal plaid quilting.
Oh my goodness, Mary. This is so beautiful. I love the simplicity of the pattern and the joy it exudes is just so heartwarming. Big hugs to you!
Awe, I love that you gave this to Linda. In a time of tragedy, I’m sure this quilt will bring much comfort and a smile to her face.
Great job with this cozy quilt! I love that you were able to donate it to someone you know that is in need. Charity starts at home!
I think giving it to Linda is very meaningful. I hope that she is able to get the help and support she needs right now. ❤
