Got the Blues (in a good way)

PSA: If you need my address to send blocks for Covered in Love please email Or if you want me to contact you please leave you email address in your comment. Many of you are "no-reply" bloggers and I cannot respond to your comments. Thanks!

Three blue quilts for Covered in Love this week. Holly sent in this large, fun quilt top and backing.  It's something like 80"x60" so it will be perfect for covering a grieving family.

binding by Nicki ;)

Next, Louise sent in this finished quilt which was made sewing-bee style by my do. Good Stitches circle.

This quilt used up some tiny bonus triangles from a previous block we did. 

spot the backward block?
Next, my long-arm volunteer Meloney returned this beauty called the "Loon Quilt" by Laura. It's something like 80"x100" and gorgeous. I'm sure each of these quilts will find their home with the perfect family :)

PS- Kitten update. Everyone is doing great! They just turned 5 weeks and we are officially weaned off the bottle (hallelujah!). Here are Waffles and Fudge doing what brothers do.

Covered in Love is a 501(c)(3) charity that donates quilts to patients dying in the hospital, over 300 so far! The Sept/Oct drive is a repeat of one of my old favorites, the grown-up eye-spy quilt.  Check out the main post HERE if you want to get involved.

  1. Beautiful quilts for grieving families. They will surely bring warmth & comfort. Looks like Waffles & Fudge are having the time of their life at their new home. They look fat & happy & full of energy. Thanks for keeping us updated on their progress.
