Everything but the Kitchen Sink

Hello and happy March! We made it through the first long cold months of the year.  This week I have  3 quilts that Louise sent back to Covered in Love. Louise is a CiL board member and she's also taken on the role of UFO and orphan block wrangler.

I'm calling this one a kitchen sink quilt, since it combines so many different orphan blocks. Many of them have diagonal elements which ties them all together. 

This very structured quilt was made with a beautiful fat quarter stack of metallic fabrics using this free pattern.

I tried to take close ups so you can see how pretty and detailed the fabrics are.

Lastly, another different style of kitchen sink quilt bringing together a variety of UFO blocks, all with black and grey tones. Thank you, Louise, the UFO whisperer!

I keep a running box of orphan blocks and UFOs and orphans for Louise and ship it when it gets full. Sundae does her part by keeping things well compressed as I add layers ;)

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

  1. Louise is my heroine with orphan blocks! And I bet her cat Angel loves catching a whiff of Sundae and her furs in the blocks!

  2. She is certainly one of the queens of kitchen sink quilts. She did a fabulous job on all and that one with the free pattern totally changed the looks of it with those fabrics.

  3. Hip-Hip-Hooray for Louise! She's the orphan block wonder! Thanks so much for all she does for CiL with her time & talent. I see Fudge is sending her love to Louise also. (Don't forget to take her out of the box before sending it...:))
    Those quilts turned out absolutely beautiful.

  4. 'Kitchen sink' quilts are some of my favorites, both to make and to look at. Love the packing helper you have!

  5. Three cheers for the UFO Whisperer!!!

  6. Thanks for the kind words, friends!

  7. Wonderful job Louise did on two of those orphan block quilts. All the quilts are gorgeous and will be well received in the next batch you deliver.
