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.
