Applique Quilts Courtesy of Meg
We all have our weaknesses, Achilles heels, when it comes to quilting. Mine (well, one of mine) is applique. I absolutely hate applique.
That's why it was an especially pleasant surprise when Meg from Colorado sent in 4 gorgeous tops with a mix of applique and piecing.
Of course anyone can participate with Covered in Love by donating to the block drives, but I also accepts WIPs and tops that need quilting to finish off for donation.
These tops of Meg's are gorgeous. I especially love the careful Celtic knot-work on the one with the angel.
The pink one above is made from flannel, so soft and pretty.
Meg said she worried this last one, with the log cabins, was too far gone to be any good. One of her earlier quilts, not squared or flat-lying. Oh ye of little faith ;) I flattened the top out and quilted the bejezzus out of it, squared up the edges and I think it looks just lovely!
Thank you to Meg, and so many others, who continue to donate to Covered in Love. I dropped off more quilts a week or so ago and snapped a photo of Chaplain Perry, the Ham, with the delivery. If you want to participate in the Jan/Feb block drive you can find it here.
