Christmas in July

Happy Friday! I hope everyone's 4th of July went well and you saw some nice fireworks.  This week's quilt is a subtly holiday themed one for Covered in Love. This is another top made by Jannette from Canada and quilted by a Texan longarmer, Meloney.  Thanks ladies!

Of course this quilt doesn't have to be Christmas themed, but the colors do lend themselves well.  Christmas is only 6 months away now!  (If your looking for some Christmas quilting-gift-guidance and encouragement check out the Christmas in July blog hop.)

Meloney did beautiful quilting of wavy lines interspersed with stars that really bring a nice texture to the quilt.

I love how simple and striking Jannette's interlocking pinwheel design is.  This quilt is in the stack for the next CiL delivery to the hospital where it will comfort a grieving family. Thank you to Jannette, Meloney, and everyone else who keeps CiL running!

The new Covered in Love block drive just began and it's a red, white, and blue star free-for-all.  This drive will run until the end of August if you want to help out.  More info here

Listening to... Christmas music, of course :)


  1. Lovely friendship stars! Thank you Jannette and Meloney :)

  2. Beautiful quilt top! I'm a newer "follower" and just read about Covered in Love. I have bookmarked the information page about it and see if I can't help out a bit. Have a good weekend! --Andrea

  3. That's a really pretty quilt that Jannette & Meloney made. It will bring comfort to a family who needs help in relieving stress at this time in their lives.

  4. I love the way the stars show up - I mean, is it a white star quilt or a red star quilt, makes it so interesting to look at. Well done!
