H2H Charity Challenge

This is the second year I have participated in the Hands 2 Help Charity Challenge.  This year, we had 2 different charities we could choose to support.  You can read about the challenge here: H2H 2012

I chose to make 2 quilts for the Happy Chemo project, an organization that provides quilts and comfort to chemo patients:.  They will be sent to Ems Scrapbag--she set a goal to collect 1,500 quilts for Chemotherapy units throughout Utah. You could make quits for men, women and kids: I made a girl quilt and a boy quilt:

Fun freehand flowers tumbling over this yummy fabric.
The back is the same fabric as the outer border.
Flannel top, bottom and binding.

This quilt is flannel also.
I had exactly one yard of the blue race car fabric in my stash.  I shopped for a complimentary flannel and found this bright green dot and added a little strip of black from my stash!

Maroi Moko by Judy Lyon of MeadowLyon Designs.

Also, in my stash was just enough black and white checkered cotton to make a fun binding to match!
I am linking up with Sarah at Confessions of a Fabric Addict where everyone will show all the charity quilts that were made.  She will have the link open all week, so check back to see everyone's creations!
