Team Effort

The finishes I have to show this week really belong to other people. Covered in Love has always relied on the generosity of the quilting community, and these two quilts were definitely a team effort!

This oversize disappearing nine patch was a UFO given to me by Tricia. I assembled the blocks and a local quilter named Kathy free-motioned it.

I assume these fabrics probably came from a layer cake.  They're all sewing themed with pins, needle, scissors and other paraphernalia. Cute!

This fall colored top I've had for a while now, it came from Jo in North Carolina. It's backed with the nice print Gail from Oklahoma gave me and was also quilted by Kathy!  The backing's a little hard to read, but it has words like "friendship, home, memories".

Thanks to everyone who supports CiL! Both of these are in the donation stack now.  CiL gives quilts to patients who pass away in the hospital.  If you want to support our effort one great way to help is the bi-monthly block drives.  Come back tomorrow (Saturday) to see the new block drive announcement for May/June!

Linking to Crazy Mom Quilts and Confessions of a Fabric Addict.

Listening to...yes, it's another musical! This week has been a theatrical marathon seeing all the spring shows opening around here (Sat- Brighton Beach Memoirs, Sun- Boys Next Door, Wed- Peter and the Starcatcher, Thurs- Shrek, Sat- Alton Brown, Sun- Hair) so it's what's in my head!


  1. Two more beautiful quilts to add to the donation stack. I love the bright colors in the D9Patch & really like the border on the fall colored quilt. These quilts will surely help the grieving families.

  2. These are both beautiful quilts.

  3. Big thanks to Jo and Kathy! Those lovely quilts will give comfort in a family's dark hours.
