Tops to Quilts

Happy Fall, Y'all!  Well, almost. Today it was 90 degrees, but the two days before that it was cool and it's finally starting to feel like the seasons are changing.  The cooler weather always gives me a burst of motivation, so I got busy the other day and transformed some donated tops into finished quilts.

This beautiful batik jelly roll race came from Vickie in Ohio and isn't it lovely? I admit, batik fabrics are my favorites. Those bold, saturated colors!

I put together a backing from the gorgeous, hand-dyed, batik fat quarters sent to me by Jean from Connecticut. This bright quilt is going to be perfect to comfort a family through Covered in Love.

After that bright and a little bit wild top I quilted up this one, which is so serene and refined.  Priscilla from Connecticut sent this in.

Isn't the color fade so beautiful? And I love the borders.  If you want to join in with Covered in Love you can always jump into the current block drive, linked below.
