Hands to Help Flimsy done.......and a visit from Murphy....


“Learn to light a candle in the darkest moments of someone’s life. Be the light that helps others see; it is what gives life its deepest significance.”
Roy T. Bennett


I was so proud of myself on Friday because I got this post all ready to go for today, Sunday, which is the day that the Hands to Help first check-in linkup was set to open......and then Murphy intervened....

First I saw a little message from blogger saying they had several new themes.....well I haven't changed my blog theme in ages so I thought....it won't hurt to just look.........Wrong!  Before it was all over and done I had changed my theme and I couldn't find anything!  I really did like the theme and I just wanted to make a few changes but there were no links to the layout pages, etc, so I spent awhile trying to figure out how to find the html edit page and luckily I had saved my old theme and was able to get it back, but not before I had somehow deleted the post I had all ready to go for this morning!  (sheesh....talk about a run-on sentence....my high school English teacher would be rolling her eyes)

I also had a different quote about giving on the initial post that I wasn't able to find this morning but I like the one above that I did find.......
So onward............

I am linking up this morning with Sarah at Confessions of a Fabric Addict on her Hands to Help Page........this is the 7th year for H2H and my second year joining them. If you haven't heard of this worthwhile cause I invite you to check it out! 

My inspiration for this little lapquilt I am making was a bingo block that my Sis and I each made for a May for Me celebration a few years ago.  I liked the bright colors and hope it will help a child undergoing chemo to stay a little warmer.  I will be sending this to Happy Chemo when it's finished.


I just started with the Bingo block as the center and built out from there.  The backing will be the same fabric I used on the second and final rounds.

So very sweet! I think someone is going to be so lucky to receive this quilt. This is my first year doing a quilt for Hands2Help. Most of my charity quilts go to Project Linus, but I thought this looked like a great cause.

Your quilt is cute. I saw they had new lay outs but I spent so much time making my header I was afraid of trying it.

What a bright fun quilt that will provide some comfort and entertainment just looking at all the wonderful prints in it! I'll have to check out the new layouts someday...maybe.

I am too terrified to make any changes. I love the idea of using your BINGO mini for the center. That turned out so cute.
