TGIFF - Hands2Help Comfort Quilt

Thank Goodness It's Finished Friday is being hosted here once again.  As one of the four monthly managers for TGIFF, I host when there isn't someone signed up on the schedule.

If you are interested in hosting, you can click here to sign up.

I'm once again participating in the Hands2Help Comfort Quilt Challenge hosted by Sarah @ Confessions of a Fabric Addict.

My quilt started out with 2.5-inch strips, sewn together on the long edge.  I cut the strip set into three sections:  19.5 inches, 8 inches, and 12 inches.

I followed a Rockin' Rectangles tutorial shared by Sarah.  I think next time, I'll cut the strips into sections before sewing them together.  I think it would be a little easier to manage.  I used Kona Sky for the accent pieces, which are 8 inches wide.

My quilt will be going to Victoria's Quilts Canada.  The organization gives quilts to Canadians living with Canada.  They request quilt tops only, so my top is technically "finished" even though it's not quilted.

  1. That is a lovely quilt for a wonderful cause. Thank you for hosting this week.


  2. That's a great use of scrappy strips :)

  3. Lovely top that's sure to bring comfort.

  4. Perfect! It is going somewhere terrific and your part is done. Congrats.

  5. Super cute Anja. I get your point about cutting the strips first. It is a trick to cut something so long into straight chunks. This looks really nice though and is a great use for some extra 2 1/2" strips. Very nice!

  6. Love the bright strips. Very cheerful quilt. It is a great easy pattern for a comfort quilt.

  7. Isn’t that a fun quilt to make?! I love your joyful colors.

  8. I've been meaning to make a strip and flip quilt of my own. Yours uses such a fun array of colors and fabrics!
