|Gorgeous star quilt, pieced by Teri and quilted by Judy|
This year we gave out 90 quilts bringing out grand total to 135!! Ninety families who lost their loved one carried one of our quilts home with them.

Covered in Love was honored to be chosen as a featured charity by the Hands2Help quilt drive in the Spring and received nearly 50 quilts! As the year ends we are in the incredibly blessed position of not only having quilts at the hospital ready to be handed out, but also a nice stash at home waiting in to replenish those.
|Teri's piecing and Judy's quilting make this one a real showpiece for someone|
As the charity has matured our mission has come into better focus. I posted a long update here in September about how things are evolving.
2016 has been a rough year for a lot of people, not least of all the recipients of our quilts. Going into 2017 remember that every act of kindness is its own reward, that it lifts the giver and recipient; that darkness is not driven away by more darkness but only by light. You all have shown me that kindness this year through your donations and I hope it is repaid to you in the coming year.
Wishing you all the best, Kat.
