H2H Charity Quilt Challenge 2013

It's time to sign up for the Hands2Help Charity Quilt Challenge.  This challenge has been running for the last couple of years and, although I didn't quite get one finished by the end of the challenge in 2011 (it was my first year of quilting and things just all got on top of me), I did finish one off last year which was sent through to one of our military personnel over seas as a part of the Aussie Hero Quilts group.  

This year they'll be quilting for two charities based in America (which is normal, though as International quilters, we also have the option of either sending over the top & backing to be finished off or donating to our own homegrown charity to alleviate costs of postage), Happy Chemo and Quilts Beyond Borders - two great charities.  You could make one (or more) for each (or other groups here) and spread the love if you want.

You can read more about the Challenge here and sign up at the same time.  There will be a giveaway for folks who sign up by this Saturday night (30 March 2013, America time) and lots of giveaways at the end of the Challenge for those who participate!

They don't need to be fancy quilts - a simple design is really all that is necessary! This was the quilt I made last year ...

You can read more about it here.
Last year I was the only Aussie participating - how about add a few more to the mix?!!
