New Block Drive Finishes

Another Friday and some new finishes to show! This time it's the first 2 quilts from the Jan/Feb Covered in Love block drive.  If you're interested in the block drives you can find the current one here.

During the Jan/Feb drive we made quarter log cabin blocks with a color fade and over 30 quilters sent in blocks.  I'm really thrilled with how these quilts came together. The colors are like jewel-tones.

Both these quilts finished at a nice size, 60"x72", and used fluffy wool batting.  These are the first two of what will be six quilts from the Jan/Feb block drive.

Spring is definitely here in Texas and the heat won't be far behind.  The end of my semester is sneaking up on me so fast now; it feels like this year has flown by! I hope things are going well and the weather is mild where ever you are.

Covered in Love makes quilts of comfort.  The latest CiL block drive will run through April. If you want to help make blocks for grieving families we'd love to have you. More info here

Listening old favorite. I was fortunate enough to see flamenco dancing in Spain years ago and was amazed by how powerful and striking it is. Far from the delicate, feminine skirt-fluffing you see in TV and movies.


  1. Congrats on a couple of WONDERFUL finishes!!!

  2. Beautiful quilts, love them both.

  3. So cool, soothing and lovely! Another great block that turned into beautiful quilts. Great job herding us cats into such a wonderful end product :)

  4. Those 2 quilts turned out beautiful. I'm happy you had good response from quilters around the country to help with these. Six quilts for Jan/Feb will help cover 6 families with love when they desperately need it at this time. Thank you for making these all through the year.

  5. Those look great, Kat! I love those colors together.

  6. Such a simple little block but it sure makes a big impact in your quilts. Lovely! Thanks for sharing with Oh Scrap!

  7. Hi Kat,
    I put 6 blocks in the mail for you today. The fade blocks really look nice all together.
