Hands2Help challenge 2016

I participated in the Hands2help challenge 2016 hosted by Sarah.

She chose 3 charities to who you can donate a quilt. I choose to donate my quilt to Happy Chemo, an organization that provides quilts and comfort for chemo patients.

I posted about this quilt before here where I explained how the top became the way it is.

 After that post I set of to Dorthes Shop where I spend 2 hours on the longarm.
I was my first time quilting a quilt on the longarm so I decided to stick to what I knew and just have fun.

 I do think it works really well uniting all the blocks together to one quilt.

For the binding I opted for a tone in tone grey, rather then a scrappy binding which was my first idea and I am glad I changed my mind. I am really chuffed with how this quilt came together and am very proud to send it to such a good cause.

 I didn't want to deprive you of this action shot;)
I am linking this post to the following linkypartys:
