My H2H 2017

Today would be my only daughter's 44th birthday. She was such a bright penny. A perky girl, you know the kind. I loved her so much. . . but she died of breast cancer in 2013 and I've been like half a person since then.   I usually donate my H2H quilt to Happy Chemo, in honor of her, but this year there is Camp Hobe, and I knew she would want me to donate to kids with cancer.  I made an I Spy quilt in a strip design.  I hope it is fun for one of those kids.

I measured it, and it qualifies as the right size, but I promptly forgot the dimensions.

 Above shows the backing - had to piece it, but that red was just right with the wavy multicolored print.  Yellow print binding. 

Here's the close-up of some of the prints ....

I quilted  straight lines through one side of each strip.

Linking up to the H2H Show today at  Confessions of a Fabric Addict, Sarah is the Heart of Hands 2 Help. Thanks for this challenge, Sarah.

Hugs to you all and thanks for stopping by.

  2. Oh so sorry to hear of your devastating loss, Terri....I know this quilt will warm the heart of someone who will love it and get comfort from it...hugsx2 Julierose

  3. I'm so sorry you lost your daughter. Sending hugs. The quilt is wonderful. She would be pleased, I'm sure.

  4. I remember when you lost your Chrissy. She was a very special young lady.
    Your guilt is wonderful. Congratulations another H2H finish. I know a little child will love it.

  5. Some child will cherish this quilt and hopefully keep it forever to remember the recovery process. Your daughter would agree.

  6. Such a beautiful quilt, Terri, and a lovely tribute to Chrissy. Hugs to you, friend!

  7. What a wonderful quilt for a little kid to cuddle and have fun with. How lovely that you did it with your daughter in mind.

  8. Such a pretty and colorful quilt. So sorry about your daughter. Blessings to you and your family.

  9. What a great way to make a simple, cheerful quilt for a child. I'm going to have to make a note of this. It will be a good way to use up some of the juvenile prints that have been in my stash for far too long.
