Sweet Valentines Quilts


Happy weekend and Happy Valentines Day to those of you who celebrate!  I'm celebrating a huge quilt delivery to the hospital this week for Covered in Love.  On Tuesday I took up 48 quilts!


This round of donations included a lot of donated tops that I finished off, including these three from Julie W. in my Nurture Circle group.


This one with the soft colors and sweet, small prints is my favorite, in case you couldn't tell.


Next up, a very different bright and scrappy quilt.  I like how the alternating blocks of quarter square triangles make the design look so much more complex.


Finally, stacked coins on a light blue fabric.  I apologize for the blurry photos.  I had the get the photos taken in order the get these quilts in with this delivery and it won't. stop. raining.  My first time experimenting with an indoor photo set up in the new house.


Chaplain Perry suggested maybe we should pass out a kitten or two with each quilt, as well, for maximum cuteness.  I think that would make a pretty effective bereavement kit, don't you?



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

  1. It is sad there is such a need, but happy because you are filling it with 100% comfort. Don't underestimate what these quilts bring to people. Be encouraged by knowing these quilts keep working and giving.

  3. These are all so pretty! That first design is called Meadow something, right? Really lovely. And you're right about the QST blocks making everything look fancy. Maybe I'll try that with some orphan blocks :)

  4. WOW! Will your car hold 48 quilts? Each one will be cherished by those who receive them. In less than 5 years you've gone from 8 quilts to over 500 quilts for patients who need love & comfort at this time in their lives. Just knowing that there are others who love & care about them will give them a peace during their final days. Thank you for all the things you do that we (as volunteers) are not even aware of. {{HUGS}}

  6. They are all nice, and I do like the QST and the squares quilt. The idea of a cat and a quilt sounds like perfect comfort to me! =)

  8. Great inspirational quilts you shared. I have some string blocks ready just need the address again. I know I saved it somewhere on my computer but I haven't been able to find it! I'll get them in the mail either this week or early next week once I have the address. Thanks for helping these folks.
