Spring flowers are blooming in August! The Covered in Love quilts made from the Spring Flower block drive in March/April are done.
Local quilter and part-time saint Kathy took all these blocks and finished them into quilts.
I had a great stash of flower-themed and spring-colored fabrics to make backings for these quilts thanks to the many of you have sent in yardage.
Kathy grouped the flowers by color group and stippled the quilts.
There were six quilts in the initial batch. Eventually there will be one more with the leftover blocks, so 7 total!
It's broiling hot here in Texas right now, as it usually is this time of year.
As much as I was fed up with the rain last spring it's hard to remember why now. All the plants are dried out and the grass is dead and crunchy.
The rain did give us a spectacular spring bloom. The Texas wildflowers were exceptional and I think my mom's flower garden was the best it's ever been.
Hopefully these Spring flower quilts will remind some grieving families of better times.
Thanks to everyone who contributed! I literally couldn't do it without you.
Interestingly, this time we had loads of contributors from just a few states, especially NY and TX, and less variety of states sending in blocks.
Covered in Love is a 501(c)(3) charity that donates quilts to patients dying in the hospital, over 400 so far! The July/August drive is going on now. Check out the main post HERE if you want to get involved.
