A Finish for H2H

Recycling a January post about the second of three quilts I've made this year for Hands2Help.   

Over the weekend, I finished up Easy Breezy!  The last stitches were put in the binding while watching "All Creatures Great and Small" on PBS.  An enjoyable Sunday evening!

 

36.5 x 36.5

And a peek at the back:


As suggested by Bonnie at Institches with Bonnie, I'm going to send this one to Cool Kids Campaign for a child with a cancer diagnosis.  Check Bonnie's blog for more info about this organization.

Linking up with The Academic Quilter for the H2H Progress Party.

I like your RSC blocks; they're going to be pretty quilts.

Love how you have taken the curves instruction and put that lovely border around the embroidery. Love Easy Breezy too. Congrats on the finishes.

Kate said...

Easy Breezy turned out beautifully! Congrats on another finish. Your SAHRR curves are looking good. Good luck with your stitching plans this week.

Your SAHRR is coming along nicely. Not a single bump in those curves!

Love your Easy Breezy finish. It looks great. I think I'm going to use your idea of sashing. I really like your curvy addition to your embroidery. Great idea to add to it.

Oooh, a great finish--back too! I LOVE All Creatures G&S and wish they'd do more shows like that! Hope it goes on and on and on! Hubs and I are watching Sunday's episode tonight--we had that Chief's game to watch on Sunday! :oD

Oh I do like the idea of a piece of embroidery for your center block. Your curved piecing really sets it off. Beautiful piece of embroidery!

I love your improv borders for your SAHRR project. I’m also planning to make improv borders. Easy Breezy looks wonderful and your RSC blocks are so pretty.

Congrats on finishing up your lovely little Easy Breezy quilt, Diann! Have fun with that SAHRR project, too. You are off to a good start! I'm looking forward to seeing your January 2022 TABLE SCRAPS Challenge entry. Happy finishing!

Fun to see the SAHRR again - I love that wavy border! We've been enjoying All Creatures Great and Small, too. It's just a nice, enjoyable show to watch, and the scenery is beautiful.

Cathy said...

Your SAHRR center block with the curvy frame looks fabulous!!

The aqua binding on your Easy Breezy project sets it off just right. Interesting first round on the SAHRR. You're off to a good start. I somehow never came up with an idea for Table Scraps. Maybe next month.

Hi Diann! Love, love, LOVE the curved borders on your SAHRR piece. The dark blue background really pulls the different shades of blue in your center block. I'm guessing that's a variegated thread? It sure looks nifty. {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne

You are sew accomplished! The finish is so bright and pretty. I love your SAHRR start. I enjoyed this last year. I have been resisting new starts in 2022. This one is calling my name very loudly. Oh, my ... :) Pat

Lovely gentle curves for your SAHRR.
Looking forward to your quilting growth!

I love your RR process! And your quilt is wonderful, it will be cuddly for sure.

Easy Breezy turned out so pretty and love what you did with the back! We watched Grantchester a few years back and really enjoyed it. I guess I should give All Creatures another try. I only watched one episode and was disappointed in it because I loved the original so much. Maybe my expectations weren't realistic!
I'm a week behind, but thank you for linking to To Do Tuesday!
