Besides blocks drives, the other major source of quilts for CiL is quilters who send in quilt tops ready to be quilted, bound, and delivered to the hospital.
Paula B. was an exceptional quilter with an eye for color and design. She also had a passion for special people, you can ready her obituary here. In honor of her memory several members of the quilt-y community are organizing a Quilt Donation Blog Hop for early May.

For the blog hop quilters are asked to make a quilt to donate to any charity that is close to their heart in memory of Paula.

Be sure to check out Kate's blog for details so you have time to plan if you want to participate. There's plenty of time to make a baby quilt for an organization like Jack's Basket or a local NICU or foster agency between now and then.
Paula represents so many unique and wonderful individuals I've met in the quilting community. Interesting, smart, generous people who want to help others. I was honored to to have "met" her and I hope many of you will participate in the blog hop in her honor.
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.
