String Drive 2019: Round 5


Are you tired of string quilts yet? If you are I apologize.  We are nearing the end of the 2019 string quilt drive, one more post after this one!

These are string quilts 19 through 22.  I had the most perfect cutesy backing to go on this one with more pinks and purples in the top.

This is one of the 60" quilts, it got a manly John Deere tractor backing.  The other "manly" quilt and the top of the post got a flannel backing with race cars :)

Finally, this really cool brown top was sent in nearly finished by Tina.  There were just a few blocks that needed an extra strip or two and it was ready to go. I really like the brown and red together.

I was able to put together an awesome backing for it, too, with the color scheme in this donated bird fabric.

So that's the last of the strings for a while, 22 string quilts done this year so far! Looking forward to something new next weekend ;)

Covered in Love is a 501(c)(3) charity that donates quilts to patients dying in the hospital, over 500 so far! The September/October drive is going on now.  Check out the main post HERE if you want to get involved.

  1. Never ever ever sick of string quilts! They are so amazingly scrappy and versatile. Kat, you're doing an excellent job on bringing all these blocks together! The brown and red one is super. Big thanks to Tina, too!

  2. What awesome quilts to add to the already completed strings quilts. The brown one is so very manly & fantastic. Tina did a great job with her blocks. Sundae & Fudge cuddle so good together!

  3. I love the brown one especially, but they are all great. I never get tired of string quilts!

  4. Never tired - that brown one just sorta popped out at me! I love the multi colored - but this one was appealing too!

  5. Your string quilts are absolutely fabulous! I will never get tired of seeing them. Your quilt inspectors are adorable.

  6. I'm not sick of them, but I'll bet you are LOL. I love the backings you have been using-especially the forest animal fabric. Are you ever too old to love animal fabric? No, right? Pets to the Quilt Inspectors.

  7. Go, Kat, go!! These String quilts ALL turned out great!
