This spring I decided to participate in the Hands2Help Charity Quilt Challenge 2014. There were three great charities which we could donate a quilt, and since cancer has been such a dreadful part of my family history, I decided I'd make a child's quilt for the Happy Chemo group.
This was one of the first quilts I made. Pretty simple. But it has that really soft Minky backing that makes it perfect for snuggling. Or for a child to cuddle into and feel warm. And cozy. I want to say feel safe, but I dare not go that far for a child with cancer. After all, quilts can only provide little bits of comfort.
It will be a good quilt for the right family.
The colors have always reminded me of a Western theme. Maybe it's those curliques in the red that remind me of lassos?
I am looking forward to seeing what everyone else has come up with for their donations.
Definitely quilting with a smile!
