Eat your Greens

Tossed salad and soggy crackers: that's what Paula who made this top named it. Isn't that too perfect? I love it.

The tops was made from a bunch of leftover pieces, including low volume four patch units (which she called soggy crackers). Such warm, soothing scraps in this one.

I backed the top with some fabrics sent in by Sandra and quilted it with a quick stipple.  Sandra has generously sent in several boxes of yardage to keep me in backings, so I can always find the perfect match for a top!

This next quilt came from my college friend's mom, Theresa. She was kind enough to send me a box of projects to finish so you're going to be seeing a lot of her tops in the coming months.

This nice flannel sampler came already basted to its backing and batting! I threw it on the machine the very day I opened the box and had a quick finish.

The flannel is super soft and cozy and I love the colors in this one.  It's a generous size and will make a great snuggle quilt for someone.

My new stray cat friend Radio was on hand of help with quilt photography. As you can see from the leaves on the ground the seasons are starting to change!  It's almost time for a change of block drives, too.  Keep an eye out for the new drive post to go up sometimes over the weekend, and if you're still working on October blocks now's the time to get them finished up!

I name him Radio because he never stops talking

If you'd like to join in with Covered in Love's mission you can learn more on the main page or check out the block drive.  The current Covered in Love block drive is a simple Fall-colored patchwork. This drive is almost over but there's still time to squeeze in a few blocks by the end of October if you want.  More info here

  1. Cute name! Cute cat! Lovely quilts! How nice that quilters so generously send you backings and such! This is not an inexpensive mission you’re on! Bless you for all your efforts.

  2. I remember Paula's quilt as she was piecing it. How great that she donated it to CiL!

  3. Radio. a tuxedo Kitty, is so cute. And he talks....!! Lovely. And a wonderful quilt too. I love your mission.

  4. What a great flannel sampler quilt - and such a quick finish for you! Two wonderful quilts to add to the donation pile. :-)

  5. He doesn't really look like a stray. He looks more like he has found his human.
    We sure have missed you at MQG.
    Lovely quilts for CiL

  6. Great couple of quilts to add to the pile for the next hospital delivery!

  7. Your Radio looks a lot like our kitty, Tuxedo. He does NOT talk. He very rarely makes any noise. So looking forward to the next drive, ,my fall blocks are in the mail. You should have them very soon.
