Happy Fall, y'all! It's still hot here, but I hold on to the hope that Fall is coming and it might cool down sometime in the next 2 months. Meanwhile, it's time for the next Covered in Love block drive, which will run through September and October.
This block drive is a repeat from March 2016, but hopefully it will be new to many of you. This was one of my favorites of all time and there are so many more quilters participating in CiL now, I want to see what we can make!
The tutorial is HERE. Note that this time we're making a 10.5" block instead of our usual 12.5". Each block has 4 fussy-cut "eye-spy" blocks, so a 60x70" quilt ends up with 168 different little images. Something perfect to look at and kill time in the hospital and lots of little easter-eggs for people to connect to.
If you're looking for inspiration you can look at the finishes from the old block drive here.
If you haven't ever participated in a Covered in Love block drive I hope you'll consider it! We make quilts to be given to the families of patients who pass away in the hospital. Anyone can participate and make as few or as many blocks as you like, just get them in the mail by the end of October. Email CoveredinLoveTx@gmail.com or comment (make sure you aren't a "no-reply" blogger or leave your email address) to get the address to send blocks.
