More Star Quilts

Can you believe it's November already?! The new block drive is up and I have more finishes from the July drive to share with you.  Quilts 1-3 are here and this is post features 4-6 of what will be 9 quilts.

I tried to loosely group the stars again for these. The one at the top of the page is made of stars with colored backgrounds or frames sashed with an antique white. It's one of my favorites, for sure. The one above is large stars on white backgrounds, and the one below is (mostly) stars based on a 3.5" block unit.

As always, the variety of blocks is so much fun. From the rustic heart-star below... this incredibly complicated block made of meticulously pieced HSTs.

A few of you sent in some bonus cuts of patriotic fabrics I was able to use for bindings and fillers.  I noticed the pretty, scrappy mix of bindings on this quilts and had to take a photo of it.  One of these quilts was bound in reds and the other two were done with blues.

The last three of quilts from July's block drive are in various stages of being nearly done, so soon I'll be able to take a picture of all nine together! Meanwhile, you can check out the first three here.

Christy sent in this blue yardage with glittery silver stars, perfect for backing.  Thank you to everyone who contributed to July's drive. Over 40 of you! The Nov/Dec block drive is now live if you want to continue - or get involved for the first time - helping CiL make quilts!

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

  1. Wow! Another GORGEOUS set of quilts! I love that you had so many blocks that you could do this great grouping this time. And over 40 contributors makes my heart happy :)

  2. FANTASTIC blocks put together to make beautiful quilts. Thanks to the over 40 contributors who participated. What a great bonus of extra fabric that you could use for filler/binding. So glad you had enough blocks to make 9 quilts.

  3. Beautiful star blocks and gorgeous quilts! Well done you and everyone!

  4. It is amazing how the stars all go together. Great job.
