But the best reason I didn't blog last month was because I was busy getting everything together to launch Covered in Love! On April 1st I took the first 8 quilts up to the hospital.
For anyone who hasn't heard I'm gathering quilts to be given to the families of patients who pass away in the hospital. Something that they can take home with them as a comfort item.

I quilted it pretty densely with square spirals in the "buildings" and stipple in the "sky".
The sashing and borders go a square spiral too, and the backing is my new favorite IKEA print since Numbers if going out.
Please please feel free to donate to Covered in Love. All the details are on the main page. I am looking for quilts in the appox. 50"x65" range. They need to be machine wash safe. I'll take unfinished tops and blocks as well as finished quilts. I can't do this by myself, and I promise they'll go to a good cause!! Comment or email me for my address.
