H2H Guest bloggers Sandra and Kat!

 Hello everyone, and welcome to another exciting episode of the Hands 2 Help Comfort Quilt Challenge!
I hope everyone is stitching away and making serious progress on their quilts. If not, we have TWO guest bloggers today to help you with some new ideas for simple quilts. You may even be inspired to make another! 

First up is Sandra, from mmmquilts. You may know Sandra from one of her quilt alongs, which always turn out really beautiful original designs and quilts. She has a new one that is just starting, for a quilt called Pop Star. Jump over to her blog and check it out, right after you check out her H2H quilt. Speaking of which. . .

Isn't that lovely? All those soft florals and pops of color. I can see this in many different fabrics. But wait, there's more:

Sandra actually made two different scrappy quilts, and she has the directions for both in her post. Another great way to use up your scraps and make a happy quilt for someone. You can find Sandra's H2H post right HERE, and don't forget to check out the quilt along, too.

After you check out Sandra's quilt, pop over to Kat's blog, Scrapbox Quilts, and check out this beauty:

Another great quilt, and much easier than it looks! I can also see this one in many different fabrics, and Kat has also provided diagrams in different colors and a few different layouts so that you can make a unique quilt of your own. For all the (really simple) directions and more pretty pictures, as well as Kat's lovely quilting, hop over to Kat's post HERE. Be sure to leave her a nice note while you're there! 

Many, many thanks to both Sandra and Kat for their guest blogging expertise, and for sharing their patterns with all of us!

Just a reminder that next Sunday, April 17, there will be a link-up for everyone to show off their progress on their quilts. I can't wait to see them all!

Happy stitching!

Awesome tutorials, Mari! Thanks for strong-arming... er... asking Sandra and Kat to make Guest Blogger appearances for this year's H2H event.

Lots of great quilts being shared here - I really like the pink and red design. Quite dramatic.

This is my first H2H. What is the recommended size for the quilts?
