What Goes Around
Happy weekend! I hope your week went well. This was my first week of the summer semester and it's shaping up to be a doozy. Fortunately quilting is a stress relief for me, so it continues at a good pace.
These two beautiful quilts came to CiL via a circuitous route. Betty sent the tops to me, she said they'd been sitting in a box at her house for some years. They were made by another quilter she knew in an online quilting group who passed away. When that woman's husband needed to re-home her quilting stuff he turned to her group members and Betty found herself with some, including these tops.
The black background makes me think they look Amish-style. I love how she pieced with so many different black fabrics and the many textures in the colored fabrics.
This log cabin was almost certainly meant to be bigger; there were 2 extra blocks with it. But, it's big enough and done is better than perfect :) I quilted them both with a stipple and I'm so glad they are in Covered in Love's stash now.
Here's a little cuteness to start your weekend. Someone was sleeping in the sink the other day when I got up. She gave me such a look when I woke her up, I went to brush my teeth somewhere else.
Covered in Love is taking a break from the block drives for the next 2 months so I can catch up, but don't go anywhere! I still need your blocks. Check out details HERE.
