More Falling Leaves

Friday finishes!  I was afraid I wasn't going to be able to post these today because I wasn't able to get pictures. Yesterday was overcast and wet all day! But this morning the sun came out, and although it's cold and windy I was able to get some satisfactory shots.

These are falling leaves quilts 3 and 4, made from the blocks sent in for November's block of the month.  I set these in a slightly different arrangement from the first two quilts, which were a simple grid.

These are more quilts for Covered in Love.  I took a dozen up to the hospital last week and delivered them to the chaplains.  We chatted for a bit and I got to hear first hand about the most recent 2 quilt deliveries, that day and the day before.

He reiterated what a wonderful gift these quilts are to the families who received them, and I'm passing that on to all of you have helped: Thank you!

I free motioned both quilts with ribbon candy in the sashing and stipple over the leaves.  They finished at 54"x68".  Both were backd with cozy fall plaids.  The fifth and final fall leaves quilt is at the longarmer's now (thanks Annie McHugs!).

Linking to Crazy Mom Quilts Finish it Friday.
