2015 in Review

2015 is almost behind us, and what a year it's been.  We started Covered in Love and donated 45 quilts to comfort the families of the dying at ETMC in Tyler!  I couldn't have possibly done this on my own, not in a million years.  In August we started monthly block drives.  We made one quilt that first month. Then two in September.  Eight in October.  There are going to be five from November, currently in the form of 3 tops and a pile of blocks.  And looks to be at least three for December.  Close to 100 people have contributed to Covered in Love this year, from single blocks to complete quilts to quilting and piecing services.  My sincerest thanks to every one of you.

This year I made 30 quilts from start to finish, pieced and quilted 17 that others contributed blocks to, and quilted 13 tops that other sent in.

Thank you to everyone who has made Covered in Love a success this year.  It's been such a success, in fact, that I have a stack of six tops waiting to quilt and 100 blocks to turn into tops sitting around.  Even with all the help from others, taking the month off from quilting in November put me quite behind.

As such, I think we'll take January off from our monthly bock drives.  If you have any UFOs, tops, or quilts you'd like to donate I'll still take them, of course! And in February we'll resume with the block drives as usual.

Happy New Year :)

  1. You accomplished so much in 2015... looking forward to watching you soar in 2016!

  2. Thank you for all that you do, Kat! I've really enjoyed making blocks for Covered in Love as well as encouraging bee friends to also help out. I've also been thrilled to see our blocks hanging out on your blog in the quilts that you piece and quilt! Best wishes for a great 2016 for Covered in Love!

  3. You are amazing. I'm so glad to know you! Congratulations on a successful year and enjoy your block drive-free month!

  4. Wow, what a great 2015. I cant wait to see what you do in 2016!

  5. Have a wonderful rest! Thank you for your card and pins 😊 I did so little yet you thought of me-thank you

  6. I have some orphan blocks I know just what to do with now. And I'd love to help make blocks anytime. How do we help?
