Hands 2 Help 2012 Quilts Complete



Encouraging words of the day:
For you have been called to live in freedom, my brothers and sisters. But don't use your freedom to satisfy your sinful nature. Instead, use your freedom to serve one another in love. ~ Galations 5:13, NLT

I have finished my quilts for the Hands 2 Help Charity Quilt Challenge 2012.  
I made this one for The NOLA Project.  Quilts will be distributed to grade-school children in St. Bernard Parish in New Orleans.  St.Bernard Parish was hit incredibly hard by Hurricane Katrina The children that remain there have suffered through family changes as spouses split up over the decision to move or remain in the parish, and mothers tend to suffer from depression which affects the children deeply. This quilt goes off to Sarah of "Confessions of a Fabric Addict"  to be distributed with the other H2H quilts in the fall by her church group, which has made several mission trips there since the disaster.


The second quilt is for an ongoing project of Emily of Em's Scrapbag. This group provides quilts and comfort for chemo patients. 



That is all.
