Jan's Patriotic Quilts


Almost halfway through October already! I swear every year passes faster than the last.  Jan recently sent in these 4 great red white and blue quilts for Covered in Love.


There are lots of veterans in the hospital, so patriotic quilts are always a big hit.  I'll be getting all the stars from the summer block drive done soon, but we always need more :)



I'm guessing Jan uses a high loft poly batting because these are light and very soft and fluffy.  They're generously sized and will be perfect for a family to take home.


These quilts came already finished, all I needed to do was add a label.  Thank you soooo much Jan! I'm continuously amazed by how quilters around the country and even around the world shower love onto one little Texas community.


PS - the kittens are doing great! This week they should start eating kitten milk and soft food without a bottle and learning to use the litter box.  I can't wait! Waking up every 4 hours to feed and potty is exhausting.


Covered in Love is a 501(c)(3) charity that donates quilts to patients dying in the hospital, over 300 so far! The Sept/Oct drive is a repeat of one of my old favorites, the grown-up eye-spy quilt.  Check out the main post HERE if you want to get involved.

  4. Jan's quilts look wonderfully cozy. I'm sure they will appeal to the recipients and their families. Having kittens sounds as exhausting as taking care of a baby. They are really cute.
