Hands 2 Help Charity Quilt Challenge 2016 Link Up

This is my second year participating in the Hands 2 Help Charity Quilt Challenge coordinated by Sarah who blogs at Confessions of a Fabric Addict.

There are a record number of quilters signed up for this year’s challenge so I am sure Sarah will receive a record number of quilts.  Many quilters donate more than one or two so I am excited to see the final number.

Please visit Sarah to read more about the challenge and see the link ups for some quilty inspiration.

My contribution this year is a simple child’s quilt that will go to Happy Chemo.

These are the fabrics I selected.

The fun giraffes and yellow fabric came from Stephanie’s stash.  Stephanie Dunphy is writing some wonderful tote and quilt patterns which you can find  at ConnectingThreads.

The green is a Gail Kessler for Andover fabric and the Little Elephants fabric is from Michael Miller.

The easy strip pattern is one I found many years ago.  It was on Mary Johnson’s website.  This is a perfect pattern for a child size quilt.

I would like to thank Sarah for the opportunity to participate.  She is a very special person with a huge heart.  I look forward to next year.

The giraffe and the elephant fabrics are so cute. Makes a nice quilt and easily done.

Your quilt is so sweet. Perfect pattern for your large print. I've used Mary's pattern, too. You are right. It's perfect for a child. A good "goto" pattern for a fast gift or charity quilt.
