Hands 2 Help Lap Quilt {A Finish!}

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support!


This happy lap quilt is for the Hands 2 Help Quilt Challenge 2015.  The blocks are 20" square with various width strips, laid out like a rail fence quilt.   The backing is a Jennifer Paganelli print in light aqua with a yellow design.


The quilt measures 58" x 78".



I have new quilt labels that sew into the binding!  This is the first quilt I remembered to add it before it was too late!  


This quilt will be donated to the Layers of Hope - Quilting 911 which gives quilts to 911 dispatchers and their families.  It's about sharing love with our unseen heroes.

I love how you put this together. I need to remember this for future stash busting quilts.

It sure is pretty. The backing fabric is gorgeous.

Nice summery colors! Loving your label too. It's an easy and fast way to label a quilt without hand sewing.

A wonderful contribution! I love the brightness of it. Happy quilt. I can't show mine because I used a top I did as a pattern test, and the pattern isn't out yet, but it really is nice to do something for someone else, isn't it?

This is absolutely a lovely finish! I simply MUST order me some of those quilt labels. The only thing is that I want to add the name of the quilt and the year it was started and completed. I don't know if I can do that.
