Flying Geese Quilts Have Landed
Happy weekend and welcome to another block drive wrap up for Covered in Love! These 5 quilts were made from blocks sent in during the Nov/Dec block drive.
Two were assembled and quilted by me and three by Kathy. It's been a long time since we did a feminine block drive since we usually need masculine quilts more, but I'm glad we did this one!
I love how the soft and saturated colors work together! I also had a great stash of feminine and purple backing fabrics built up to go with these.
Absolutely perfect backing fabrics to compliment these cozy, sweet tops. Many of them came from Sandra, who loves bird fabrics, so special thanks to her.
Covered in Love is now at 482 quilts distributed to grieving families. With the next delivery we will surpass 500!
Thanks to a small army of supporters CiL is halfway to blessing 1000 Texans with quilts of comfort.
Speaking of supporters, go check out this quilt Louise made from a mixed box of orphan blocks, UFOs and fabric donated to me by various quilters. Whenever I start to feel I'm falling too far behind on converting donations to finished quilts I can count on Louise to take some of the load off!
Below you can see the map of all the quilters who contributed to this block drive. (And I added the map to last week's Eye Spy quilts post, since I had forgotten it.)
Thank you, all!
