Oversized Block Quilt and Patchwork Star

This week I got two quilts back from the quilter, my oversized Watermelon Taffy and another of Mina's tops.

This quilt is one I pieced using Tish's Watermelon Taffy block pattern. Instead of making a twelve inch block I made a 72" quilt top.

I found the cutest fabric on sale for the backing.

A fabulous local quilter has been donating her services to help with Covered in Love.  Please check out Annie McHugs if you need long arm quilting!

Along with my top she also quilted another top Mina had donated to me, a large patchwork star in pretty pinks and oranges.

This is the third week in a row I have featured a quilt that Mina sent in either the top or blocks for!

I love the pattern Annie chose for this one, waves with loops.

For the backing I got lucky with another sale table find: a pretty dyed fabric with print on top.

Big thank you to Mina, Annie, and everyone else who continues to make Covered in Love a success!  Check out the main page for ways to contribute or visit the monthly block drive here (we're making leaves!)  Or check back on Sunday for December's block!

  1. I love how your Watermelon Taffy turned out! Two great quilts for your awesome cause.

  2. Wow! Everything looks wonderful! So glad that these are going to fill such a worthy need. My leaves will be in the mail soon

  3. Very nice! Love that watermelon taffy quilt - I just bookmarked the pattern. I am amazed how awesome it looks as a giant! :)

  4. I remember someone (must've been YOU) saying they wanted to make a giant one of Tish's block! It is fab, fabulous! As are your backing finds! Score on both. :-) And yes I love how Annie quilted them both, especially that wave and circles pattern. Need to try that!

  5. Oh what a gorgeous oversized block - I really must make one one of these days, I'm always so drawn to them just for the wow factor of the size!
