Happy Friday! I post quilts almost every week that have been donated to Covered in Love. I know most of you are faithful followers who are well aware or what CiL is, but sometimes feel like I need to recap for new readers (Hi new people!).
CiL takes donated blocks, tops, and quilts to be given to patients who pass away in the hospital. All 3 of the quilts on this post were tops sent in by readers which I quilted. The quilts are distributed by the hospital chaplains when it is apparent a patient is going to pass away and serve as a source of comfort to family members.

Our recipients are every age, every race, and speaking every language. Prisoners, homeless, and immigrants. Wealthy, celebrities, and heroes. Death and grief make us all equal, and it's amazing how a quilt can cross any cultural divide.
Thanks to the wide variety of quilts donated CiL is able to have the right quilt available for the right family at the right time :)
Covered in Love donates quilts to patients dying in the hospital, over 300 so far! Our block drives are back on track and July/August is the annual "Oh My Stars!" drive. Check out the main post HERE if you want to get involved.
