Hands2Help 2017

It's that time of year! Sarah at Confessions of a Fabric Addict has kicked off the challenge with weeks worth of inspiration in Stunning Star quilt patterns. Go to the website and enjoy the 5 wonderful quilts she shared with pictures, tutorials and instructions.  Then join us in the challenge to make quilts for chosen charities or for a charity of your own!
I was taken by her orange and white creation called Supernova. It looked like too much fun to pass up and I just happened to have some orange sitting there in my stash. :-)
It's all sewn up into half square triangles from 7" squares.

Then an important step of trimming to make sure they are all 6.5" square. (wonky pic!)

And then on to laying the blocks out.

My table wasn't big enough!  But I got them laid out and sewed blocks into rows webbing them like Bonnie Hunter shows. I can only seem to do that in one direction but it helps keep things in order....which I really needed with this!  I am almost done sewing those rows together and will hope to get this quilted this weekend. 
This was really fun to make and I will enjoy sending this off to Emily for her to give to as a Quilty Hug to someone undergoing chemotherapy.
Hands2Help challenge is a guaranteed good feeling activity that I highly recommend :-) and if that isn't enough...there are prizes for participating.
Please join us for a sweet cause.
Thank you for all the fun comments on my last post. I enjoy connecting with you.

  1. Looking good. I like that method of 7" squares - seems to make the pieces come together so quickly. Will be a great quilt for a good cause.

  2. Very pretty. I want to make this quilt one day.

  3. Your Supernova turned out great! I love the colors, it's like a big creamsicle quilty hug :) How do you think you will quilt it?

  4. Great quilt, it would be fun and easy to do in any color combination. I'm trying to get a few Project Linus quilts finished soon. Hopefully I can get the Juki back on the frame soon so I can get the quilts quilted and out the door.

  5. I really like this design and your colors are fabulous. Someone is going to be thrilled with it.

  6. Love your quilt! Orange is such a happy colour. Your recipient will treasure this quilt and the quilts hug.
