Hands2Help Quilt Finish

It's been a mostly rainy and windy day, perfect for hanging out in the sewing room.  I finished my Hands2Help charity quilt this afternoon.


This one will go to Quilts of Compassion.  


I used the Dancing Pinwheels tutorial found at Little Miss Shabby, with some modifications for size (described here) to accommodate the use of charm squares.

The variety of fabrics came from Stephanie at Venus de Hilo.  I've long admired the colorful fabrics she uses in her quilts, so when she did some destashing last year, I scooped up an awesome "Woodland" charm pack she had put together.  

Such fun fabrics makes it just a little hard to let go.  ;)


Quilted in an overall meander.  Backed in a green and purple print and bound in a purple dot fabric.


I'm squeaking in under the wire for this week's Whoop-Whoop linky, and counting this as an April finish for A Stitch in Time.
