Scrappy: Bright and Happy

This weeks quilts are all about bright and happy colors! This first top donated by Priscilla from Connecticut. It's Bonnie Hunter's Boxy Stars pattern made in lots of fun scraps.

I love how from a distance it almost looks like a color wash quilt, but when you get close up you see all the fun novelty fabrics. Meloney quilted this on her longarm with a pretty leaf pattern.

This top with bright, modern fabric on a striking black background was donated by Paula from Wisconsin and also quilted by Meloney. She used a variegated blue and white thread to quilt a stipple interspersed with spirals.

The backing on both these quilts came from fabrics donated by Quilting Treasures. They sent me five different cuts of extra-wide, tone on tone fabrics to use for Covered in Love.

Thank you to everyone who supports CiL and makes it a success!

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
