Cuddle Fest

Happy Thanksgiving to my American readers!  I've been busy sewing, trying to knock things off my "to-do" list. Restocking my stash of baby lovies for gifting has been on there for a while.

I always keep an eye out for flannel and minky-type fabrics in remnant bins to make these from.  I sew them together pillowcase style, turn right side out, and stitch over the edge. 

Some of them are big enough to use as blankets, but most are smaller. They're really meant to be used more as security blankets or "lovies" for a toddler.  I put a loop on each one so it can be clipped to a stroller or diaper bag.

I've got 11 freshly washed and very cuddly lovies ready to go now.  The kitties insisted on quality testing (prior to the wash).

Rey found herself a good spot amidst my "ready to be quilted" piles
A lot of the stitching I've been doing for Covered in Love this week is behind-the-scenes stuff, like cutting and assembling backings for tops.  Soon there will be a batch of new finishes. Meanwhile, Beryl sent in two pretty finished quilts!

I love them both! Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. I hope you're warm, well-fed, and surrounded by faaily tonight.

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 cozy patchwork interspersed with pieced blocks. It will run until the new year if you want to help out.  More info here
