I've sort of dropped the ball this year with Hands 2 Help, which most years is hosted by Sarah at Confessions of a Fabric Addict and this year by Mari of The Academic Quilter in support of Sarah who is taking time away for self care. Thank you to Sarah (and it's good to know that you are doing well) and to Mari. I wanted to have three quilts ready to donate, but one is stuck at the block stage--well not stuck but wading toward completion. I do have two quilts that I am donating that I completed right at the beginning of the H2H Challenge this year.
They are Confetti quilts from a pattern by Rachel Hauser. I thoroughly enjoyed making them. If you'd like to check out my progress as I made them (I sure took my time!), click on the Confetti label at either the right sidebar of this post or at the bottom.
Instead of sending these across the country, I'm donating them closer to home to Margaret's Hope Chest, an organization that supports the Mother and Baby Program at Pine Rest Hospital. This is a program for mothers with post-partum depression or other peri-natal mood/anxiety disorders. The wonderful thing about the program is that it is day-treatment which includes care for the babies. Each mother receives a quilt of her own as a comforting hug of hope during therapy sessions.
I'm linking up with Mari's Hands2Help2022 party over at The Academic Quilter and looking forward to seeing everyone's quilts for Hands2Help this year. Again, thank you, Mari, for taking this on this year in addition to everything else on your plate.
