24 H2H Quilts

Sarah, over at Confessions of a Fabric Addict, is running her annual Hands2Help Charity Quilt Challenge. I decided to take on the challenge again and tackle the huge pile of tops in the "waiting to be quilted" pile. Some of the tops were made by me and some were made by the lovely ladies in my Wednesday quilt group. In January I counted 67 tops! Yikes! 

As much as I would like to support Sarah's chosen charities, last year I spent $140 mailing quilts for H2H. This year I am gifting them to local charities. So far I have 24 quilts quilted, bound and ready to donate.

These 3 quilts went to the Domestic Violence Crisis Center in Stamford, CT

This quilt is going to Camp Hole in the Wall.

These 3 will go to Circle of Care.

These 4 will go to Ann's Place.

These 3 will go to the Newington (CT) Veteran's Hospital

These 4 QOV's will be presented at Christie's Quilting Boutique on May 18th.

Fabulous amount of quilts to donate. I totally get the postage thing, it's just to expensive so I too give locally.

OK, you are a ROCK STAR!! Wow, so much love being sent out into the world :-) I hear you on the postage/shipping for finished quilts. I'll be sending mine out tomorrow and I'm sure the price is gonna sting. I'll have to research some local charities for next time.
