It's still technically September and I have the first of the August block drive quilts for Covered in Love to show! It's been a while since I made that kind of record time. If you remember, in August we made disappearing 9 patch blocks from black and white fabrics with a bright accent. There will eventually be 5 of these quilts!
This first quilt was actually a top made completely by Amanda from Louisiana. She managed to stay high and dry during their recent flooding AND get this entire top done!
Just look at those cute elephants, and scissors!
I quilted just a quick overall stipple. I backed this one with some yardage sent in by Nancy K. from Tx (thank you!) and bound it with colorful scraps. Still need to add a label with Nancy K. and Amanda's names.
Next is the first top I assembled. I am going to be playing with a couple of different layouts for these. One upshot of making so many tops is that I don't have to settle on a layout, I can try them all! This one has the colors running in diagonal stripes. The sun and wind came out to play when I hung this one up.
Lots of cute novelty fabrics in these.
I decided this time to add everyone's home state (or province) onto the label, kinda fun to see where all he blocks are coming from. Thanks to everyone who pitched in! We took September off from the block drives but October is back on and I posted the new drive this week! I hope you'll sew along with us as we make string blocks this month.
Linking to Crazy Mom Quilts Finish it Friday.
