Oh My Stars

Before you look at my post, go check out the awesome quilt Louise made for CiL this week with fabrics from Jean and Sandra!

This week the first finishes from this summer's Red White and Blue Stars block drive are done!  This year I tried to sort them more than I did last year.  This top quilt is mostly blocks with dark backgrounds, "vintage" looking fabrics, and off-white backgrounds.

All three of the quilts in today's post were quilted by the wonderful Kathy.  She's a dedicated local quilter who has helped Covered in Love a ton.

The above quilt was smaller stars floating on white backgrounds.  All of these finished at a very generous 60"x72". They are so cozy and will be perfect for someone to wrap up in.

I love all the variety of stars in these quilts. Nearly 40 of you participated in this block drive!

This quilt was more of a free-for-all with the stars, I didn't really have a theme in mind.

Aren't these stars cool?

Thank you to everyone who sent in blocks! Thank you to Kathy, my quilting hero!  In next month or so there will be more of these star quilts to come.

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 will run until the end of October if you want to help out.  More info here

  1. Love the Groovy, Dude quilt from Louise. It's so bright, bold & happy. How wonderful to have a committed helper like Louise to pass quilts on to CIL. The RWB star quilts are so pretty. Special quilts for special people. Thanks to everyone who contributes to this wonderful charity.
