One of Covered in Love's most frequent and dedicated volunteers is Mina from Kinda Quilty. She frequently sends not only blocks and occasionally finished quilts, but quite a few tops. This week I finally finished a string top she sent that I've had for an embarrassingly long time! As fortune would have it, two of Mina's other tops returned this week via US post from Judy's house aka the quilting spa. You can see Judy's post with great pictures of the wonderful job she did quilting here.
I bordered Mina's top with some green yardage and quilted it with a large loopy stipple in a khaki thread. As a side note, that large spool of nice thread along with a lot of flannel yardage good for backings was passed to me through the chaplains from a family member of someone we gifted a quilt to :)
I posted a long update about Covered in Love on Wednesday if you're interested. The program has grown and evolved so much since it started. I owe everything to the volunteers, like Mina, who support Covered in Love and believe in me. Thank you thank you!!
The Mexican Petunias have really showed out this summer. I hope you're looking forward to a great weekend!
