Thanks Lorna!

I've participated in the Hands 2 Help (H2H) charity drive for several years. I make charity quilts anyway but I sign up because it's fun to see how many charity quilts are made. I also like to see the variety of quilts.

I don't participate because of prizes or rewards. I do appreciate the sponsors who gift awards. 

In 2021,195 quilters made and donated 1034 quilts, the most ever!! This was a wonderful response!

This year Lorna gave every person who completed a quilt a free pattern from her Sew Fresh Quilts website. That is a lot of patterns to give away!


I selected the Black Birds pattern. This will be a fun pattern to piece next winter, I've already pulled some fabric to be used in the quilt.

I have more yellows and oranges than I need but I will check and see exactly how much red is left in that folded piece. I also need some darker gray fabrics, guess I'll have to do some shopping.

Thank you Lorna for the wonderful pattern. Thank you Sarah for all the planning and hard work you put into this fantastic charity project. And thank you to every single quilter who participated in the H2H 2021 project.

I have that blackbird pattern but have never used it I had ended up using a different pattern instead that my daughter wanted and I forgot about this one - thanks for reminding me I have it in the box
