Happy Friday! I've got another do. Good Stitches quilt for my finish this week. The NURTURE circle makes quilts for Covered in Love and January was my turn to be the "queen bee".
I asked the ladies to each make 2 bookshelf blocks, making a total to 20 blocks. The books are made from all different fabrics and the spines are decorated with ribbon, decorative stitches, and selvedges.
I put the blocks together with brown sashing to make the shelves and was pleased I still remember how to FMQ wood grain when it came time to quilt!
There are lots of fun surprises on this bookshelf, starting with this sleepy cat curled up on a low shelf.
Book titles include classics like "The Lorax" and "Star Wars". The quilt finished at about 55" x 72" and the chaplains will place it with the perfect book-worm.
I love my NURTURE circle ladies, thank you all so much for your consistently awesome blocks and quilts!
Covered in Love is taking a break from the block drives until July so I can catch up. If you find yourself with extra time consider donating to Jack's Blanket!
