Sewing while fending off a cat
Happy WIP Wednesday! I have been working on several projects for Covered in Love, assisted by Rory of course. First off I got a few quilts quilted and bound, but you'll have to wait until a Friday for the big reveal.
Linda recently participated in Cynthia's Orphan Adoption Event where I won her WIP! (I also won the a project from Julie, so look for that later. Thanks ladies!) I don't know what pattern Linda was originally trying to make, but I'll be able to pull at least 2 tops from these blocks (first one above).
Today I pressed and trimmed some blocks for the second top.
Rory is especially helpful with trimming; she liked to chase the rotary cutter. Eeee! I keep telling her she is going to lose some whiskers if she isn't careful.
Also, the string blocks for the October block drive are coming in. Thanks to everyone who has committed to make blocks for this month! If you want to join in check out the main post. If you want to participate comment (make sure I can see your email address) or email for an address to send the blocks.
Over the weekend we had another patient on my floor who'd had a long, long life whose family made the brave decision that it was time to let her go. They were touched when I brought in the quilt for her bed. Just a reminder that this is where your Covered in Love quilts go; this is why we do it. Thanks for your support.
