The last three quilts from the July block drive are finished and it's time to wrap this one up! We made 9 beautiful red, white, and blue star quilts to be gifted to grieving families through Covered in Love.
Here are the glamour shots of the last three quilts. If you contributed blocks and don't see them in one of these check out the previous posts with the first six quilts here and here.
This block drive was a repeat of one from last year where we made five patriotic quilts. The chaplains have told me how much families loved those quilts, so I can't wait to hear how these are received. These were taken up to the hospital today along with some others to make a total of 260 quilts donated!
Five of these star quilts were quilted by a wonderful local quilter, Kathy. I officially couldn't have done it without her-- or any of you! Take a look at the map below of all the quilters who contributed.
I had a fun time taking quilt-y glamour shots of all nine quilts together the other day before they went up to the hospital. Thanks to everyone who had helped Covered in Love to grow!
If you'd like to join in with Covered in Love's mission you can learn more on the main page or check out the block drive. The current Covered in Love block drive is a cozy patchwork interspersed with pieced blocks. It will run until the new year if you want to help out. More info here!
