String Drive 2019: Round 3

String Quilts: batch number 3! This makes 13 so far finished from the January Covered in Drive block drive.

These 4 string quilts were pieced and quilted by me. They finish at 60"x72", perfect for cuddling with.

Thanks to generous supporters I had these cool musical fabrics to back them with.

Bound with scrappy fabrics, I like how that red binding on this one brings out the red corner stones.

There are going to be, I think, 25 or so quilts from the string drive this year and they're nearly all assembled into tops. That's record time! Thank you, everybody!

...of course I can't leave you without a cat photo.

The height of feline dignity

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.
