Finish It Up Friday ~ Hands 2Help 2016 #2

This finish is especially sweet since I also get to cross this off my big UFO list for the year! The blocks for this quilt came from a block exchange in my local guild last year.    I used the last of this Ikea print for the backing.


This quilt is heading to Happy Chemo as part of the Hands2Help 2016 challenge hosted by Sarah at Confessions of a Fabric Addict.

Linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts, Confessions of a Fabric AddictSew Can She
