Now normally when it's my turn to be a quilter for do. Good Stitches I get the quilt done within a few weeks. Not this time, obviously. I really wanted to do justice to the time consuming, detailed, and truly beautiful blocks my group members had made. Finally in March these blocks came together on the design wall along with the leftover split 9 patch blocks from February's block drive.

Then, the quilt top sat for a while longer... I wanted to quilting to be worthy of the quilt. Fate intervened again in April when Judy from Quilt Paradigm wrote to me offering to do some quilting for Covered in Love. After seeing the spectacular job she did on a couple of our tops I asked if she would consider doing the Forest QAL top and she said yes!

As you can see, Judy outdid herself with the quilting on our quilt! Beautiful wavy lines sprinkled with paw-prints, bubbles, and feathers.

Covered in Love provides comfort quilts for the families of patients who pass away in the hospital. Thank you Judy, NURTURE circle, and block drive contributors for all your roles in this quilt and for patience with me to finally get it done!
