Welcome to the Sew Some Love linkup! Please link-up any post about a project you're sewing for charity.
The humble HST is my favorite quilt block. So simple, yet it can be arranged in so many ways to make complex designs! The top I've been working on is made from a fat quarter bundle of "Shine" by Red Rooster Fabric. I am ashamed to admit, I can't figure out who sent me this bundle. (*hides face in hands*) I remember getting it, I remember reading the letter and writing an email back, but my notes from that time period just say things like "fabric" or "box of goodies", not specific enough. My notes HAVE gotten better since then. So, if you sent me these fabrics, THANK YOU, and please comment or email me so I can give you credit!
This was actually the first fat quarter bundle I've ever gotten to play with. I've always considered them too expensive to buy. It was fun and so easy to make a top from the coordinated fabrics, and I still have the panel and a few FQs left to make another top!
Covered in Love has been so blessed by donations from quilters, I want you all to see what each other have going on! For purposes of the linky, I'm going to define "charity" really generally. If you're sewing a quilt for you co-worker's mom with cancer or your friend's uncle who lost his home, that totally counts! Anything you're sewing out of the goodness of your heart for someone outside you immediate circle of family and friends.
