TGIFF - Hands2Help Quilt Along

For the past few years, I have participated in a charity quilt drive.  Hands2Help is hosted by Sarah @ Confessions of a Fabric Addict.  This is the eighth year Sarah has coordinated this project.

Confessions Of A Fabric Addict

I didn't have a pattern in mind or any fabric pulled.  And then before you knew it, time was almost up.  So I scrambled to find a quick and easy pattern and discovered Strip Tango by Kelly @ My Quilt Infatuation.  You can find the tutorial here.

I had a bunch of fat quarters that I thought would look good together.  It doesn't look as I had envisioned, but I think it's okay.

A quick all-over stipple in grey thread for a quick finish.

The size wasn't large enough for the charity's requirements, so I added two orange horizontal sashing strips.

I would definitely use Kelly's tutorial again.  But I would make a plan and have a more coordinated collection of fat quarters.

I'm linking up with the following:

  1. Your quilt is very pretty and versatile. I can see it for either gender as well as for any age! I liked your idea of adding sashing to increase the size as well. Your quilt reminds me of a jelly roll race quilt, but with more interest because the blocks are going in different directions. Nice job!

  2. It is an adorable quilt! It will bring a smile and comfort to the recipent.

  3. That was a quick, and perfect, fix, it came out just lovely and will be gladly received!
