Sampler Strings Done

A while back one of the Tyler Modern ladies, Sheryl, gave me two sets of block-of-the-month sampler blocks to make Covered in Love quilts with.  She was happy to get rids of some UFOs and I was happy to have them!


The first set is all done and quilted and I'm calling it "Sampler Strings" after the vertical string sashing.


Someone else had given me 3 more blocks from the same block-of-the-month so I had 15 all together.  Thank you ladies!! All I had to do was add some sashing and put it together.


The quilt got my usual quick, simple stipple.  You've gotta love those fun fabrics in bright, saturated colors!  If you would like to get involved with Covered in Love check out our main page for details or see our April block drive here.


I got to deliver 8 more quilts to the chaplains yesterday and hear updates and stories.  He told me that so often the quilt that they chose (somewhat randomly) to take to a family turns out to be the perfect one with a color, pattern, or fabric that has special significance to them! It's amazing how these things work out :)

Linking to Crazy Mom Quilts Finish it Friday & TGIFF at Quilting is More Fun Than Housework.
