Hands 2 Help Tumbler Quilt


Stitched, washed, dried and ready to go.  It just needs a label.

I'm donating this quilt to one of the Hands 2 Help charities, an annual event begun and hosted by Sarah of Confessions of a Fabric Addict.
I put together this tumbler quilt top a few years ago, put it away with other unfinished projects, but never forgot about it.  I didn't know who to give it to, until  now.  I got to work putting it together with it's backing and batting, quilted it and sewed on the binding this morning. 
There's nothing like a finished quilt.

I also found another quilt block that I like for Brenna's quilt and have finally decided that this is the one.
Does this block have a name?  The center is a simple pinwheel, but I think the extensions make it some kind of star.  Edit:  This is a variation of the Shooting Star block.
I hope you all have a wonderful week ahead.
God Bless.

I'm glad you finally found a worthy cause to donate the quilt to. It looks like it's a great size. Will the block become a quilt?

Lovely donation quilt and the stripes work so well to give it a modern twist. Look forward to seeing what else comes with your shooting stars block. Take care.
