Warm Summer Days

Warm summer days? Not here! Like most of the rest of you I've been freezing my buns off the last few weeks. I spent a week in Illinois just to get my fill of real cold, but even Texas has been stubbornly below freezing.

These two pretty blue and yellow quilts are bringing the summer sunshine, though.  Don't you think? Two more of Theresa's tops that I quilted. They are two versions of an irish chain.

The bigger one got an all-over stipple, the smaller one with the yellow pinwheels got stipple intermixed with stars.  Both will be going up to the hospital for Covered in Love soon.

I hope you all had a good holiday season.  I was able to travel a bit and see many of my friends and families. I saw five babies (15 months and younger) in 8 days!

I found the perfect backing Sandra had sent in to go with the summertime, beach-y color scheme.

Nancy K. sent in this lovely finished quilt for Covered in Love.  The blocks look like the faded quarter cabins we did for a CiL block drive last year.  I love this color combination and the color fade looks so good! Wish I'd though to try that with some of the block drive tops.

The quilting is a beautiful celtic-looking wave pattern. Beautiful! Thanks so much Nancy!

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 fun string block and there's a GIVEAWAY going on, too!  More info here!

  1. Wow - that really was a fantastic backing!

  2. More beautiful quilts! I just love blue and yellow together. You're right, it feels like summer to look at these two from Theresa. And I really like that quilting on Nancy's pretty fade quilt. Thanks, ladies, for your wonderful donations!

  3. I love the Friendship Stars at the intersections of the Irish Chain! A great set of quilts. Well done ladies!

  4. Beautiful quilts! The Irish Chain with the stars is my favorite! Love the celtic wave quilting on the other one too!

  5. They are the perfect quilts to brighten up a cold winter day!
