The Covered in Love Village
Happy weekend quilters! My first week at my new job went really well and I hope you all had great weeks. Mina sent in more of her scrappy village tops for me to finish for Covered in Love. If I counted correctly these are village quilts numbers 7 and 8.
I love these quilts because I love the symbolism of a diverse village living together and supporting each other, which is of course never more important than in the difficult times as our quilt recipients are going through. And of course I love all the little peek-a-boo surprises like this babushka lady in the doorway.
There are a lot of changes going on in my life right now, most notably a new job which is seriously going to cut into my spare (quilting) time. My hope is that CiL will be able to continue along at a pace similar to what we have been.
The CiL village supports east Texans in need, but you guys are also my village and you support me. Thanks so much to those of you who send in blocks, tops, backings, and quilts. Thanks especially to the ladies who have stepped up to help assemble and quilt for CiL. I so appreciate my village!
I interrupted Fudge's bath on one of the Nov/Dec quilts in progress. He says, "Yes? You needed something?"
Covered in Love is a 501(c)(3) charity that donates quilts to patients dying in the hospital, over 400 so far! The Jan/Feb drive is going on now. Check out the main post HERE if you want to get involved.
