Finishes for CiL

It's been a whole week since I posted.  You know, back in January when I decided to take an 11-day vacation in the middle of the school semester it seemed like a pretty good idea.  Now... not so much!  I know it's going to be fun, and going to be worth it once I'm there.  Right now it's hard to see past my to-do list as I work to get 2 weeks ahead on all my school assignments.

In the midst of spending way too much time on school, I did get the final  String Diamonds quilt done.  That means I'm all caught up on block drive quilts for Covered in Love, just in time to start on February's quilts!

This one measures 60" square, like the others.  I did a quick stipple quilting all over.  The other finish this week I only did the binding on.  Susan, one of the regular block drive contributors, sent me this beautiful bright top for Covered in Love, and Annie did her long arm quilting on it.  Gorgeous!

If you want to contribute to Covered in Love our March block drive is going on now. Check it out by clicking on the block below!
