Finally I am finished with the quilts from October's block drive! If you remember, we made string blocks. I showed the first 3 quilts back in January and now the final 5 are done. A total of 8 string quilts from the blocks sent in October!
The majority of these are 50"x70", there is one 60" square. I thought the blooming clover made a pretty place to take pictures, even though I did have to re-wash the quilts after.
These quilts will be added to the Covered in Love stash at the hospital. Thank you to soo many quilters who made this possible.
Thanks to Christy, Mina, Louise, Jan, Jeanine, Susan, Nancy K., Joy, Elana, Patricia, Amanda, Irene, Summer, Brenda, Molly, Diann, Barbara W., Margo, Linda, Nancy G., Ann, Audrey, Johanna, Valerie, Nancy R., Marilyn and more.

Sometimes people apologize for sending in blocks with unusual novelty fabrics. To be honest I've gotten a few raised eyebrows from the Chaplains, too. But I have to tell you, don't apologize! Because it never fails that we bring that quilt into a family and they say, "How did you know? Grandma was obsessed with ____!" French fries or birds or Paris or whatever it is. I don't know how it works out that way, but it does. People are looking for something to connect to and something to make them laugh at times like these. In that vein, here's a too-cute cat fabric Amanda sent in for backing.
Covered in Love makes quilts of comfort. The latest CiL block drive just started and will run through April. If you want to help make blocks for grieving families jump on board here!
