Hands 2 Help final link up - the big reveal!!

Oh I got these done just in time!!  My original stretch goal was 3 for each charity, but I only have 2 for each.  I'm quite happy with that. Six quilty hugs I'm sending out for this years drive. First up is Happy Chemo - 2 quilts, "Hi" from Nov/Dec 2013 Quilty magazine.  Fabrics are a few from Glimma collection and others from my stash.  Pantograph is Tea Lights by Patricia Ritter.  The other is a tumbler quilt, fabrics are Botanique (Joel Dewberry) and a new panto on this one, Aztec Wave by Patricia Ritter.
H2H Happy Chemo #1 - it really has binding I promise!

Happy Chemo #2 - "Hi" , hobbs 80/20 battting, Tea Lites pantograph

Happy Chemo 2 - detail 
Next is Quilts of Compassion, 2 quilts.  One is a tube quilt the other is Posy Patch from an Amy Ellis book.  I did custom quilting on the tube quilt, simple lines in the white and then one each for the colored squares.  I used Fanfare Pantograph by Patricia Ritter (I guess I really like her stuff!!) on Posy Patch
