Jelly Roll Giveaway drawing at the end of this post, don't miss it!
Politicians may not be able to get it together, but at least Covered in Love is a shining example of international cooperation! These two quilts are part of a set of tops that came all the way from Jannette in Canada.
The first on is a pretty scrap quilt. Even the white backgrounds are scrappy too, my favorite kind of quilt! I did a quick stipple, backed if with fabric from Judy and bound it with pre-folded binding from Nicki!
This quilt I'm guessing all the fabrics came from the same line, but I don't recognize which one. It's pretty and Spring-y, perfect for this time of year when the flowers are starting to bloom.
This one was back with fabric donated by Sandra and bound with scraps from my string bin. Thank you Jannette, Sandra, Nicki, and Judy!
Now on to the moment you've all been waiting for! I offered two jelly rolls as part of CiL's Jan/Feb block drive to celebrate (almost) 3 years/300 quilts for Covered in Love! Every block sent in counted as one entry (for those of you who sent finished tops I counted up how many blocks were in them). You guys rocked this block drive! 1272 blocks sent in!!! I'm going to be sewing up string quilts through the summer, and I'm thrilled about that!
|less than half of the blocks sent in|
Drum roll please, the random number generator has chosen #303, Kathy B. from Indiana, and #1196, Pam C. from California!
Kathy B. is a long time contributor and Pam is brand new, somehow that seems perfect. Thank you, all of you, who contribute to Covered in Love. Some of you have been sending in blocks since the first or second drive and more new people join every month. I am proud of what we made and I couldn't have done it without you!
Don't forget about the block drive going on now! 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 an easy Hunter's Star block.
