Sew Some Love Sunday - H2H 2022 - The Quilt Top


Welcome to another edition of Sew Some Love Sunday!!  I've been working on my 2022 Hands2Help quilt since LAST year. I'm pleased to announce that the blocks shown below have now been assembled into a quilt top.


Here's the story, for those who care to read it...

Sarah @ Confessions of a Fabric Addict shared a tutorial by Christina @ A Few Scraps for H2H21.  It was YELLOW month at the Rainbow Scrap Challenge when I got started on my blocks.  I was busy quilting donation quilts and didn't get very far, but figured that would give me a head start for this year's event.  I was right!  :o))

I finished up the last few blocks a couple of weeks ago and decided on a layout, then sewed the rows together.  Here they are, waiting to be pressed:


Assembling the quilt top was a little tricky since I selected an on-point setting:


I got it together and now just need to choose or make a backing:


What a cheerful quilt this is going to be.  As you can see, I opted for an alternate setting.  Love, love, LOVE the fun dotted fabric that my Design Assistant picked out!  I was having trouble deciding on something.  Thanks, DS2!!  This will be donated to my local quilt guild's charity program to avoid having to make a(nother) trip to the post office.

Until next time...
Sew Some Love!!!
