I received a lovely thank you email from a family member of a Covered in Love quilt recipient today that I want to share with you.
"You truly touched my family's heart through CIL. My mom was critically ill in the ICU when she received a beautiful quit. This quilt was with her until she passed and now it sits in her favorite chair at our home in our living room."
Thank you to every single person who has contributed to CiL. These thanks belong to all of you!
In the photo above you can see the design Meloney used, daisies in swirling lines. I really like this design and think it compliments the quilt top really well. This quilt has already been taken up to the hospital for Covered in Love, it was part of the last donation that put us up over 200 quilts. Yes 200! I'm planning a proper celebration this Fall for that milestone.
I had the perfect backing for this top, bought on sale some time ago, and finally found its home! I really like how this design looks fairly complicated when it's just a simple alternating grid of two blocks (and one of them isn't even a pieced block). (ETA: Jannette says it's a Project Linus pattern called Warm Wishes and you can find it HERE.)
Finished, photographed, folded and ready for delivery :) Thank you Jannette and Meloney!
The new Covered in Love block drive just began and it's a red, white, and blue star free-for-all. This drive will run until the end of August if you want to help out. More info here!
