Tammy helped finish off some of the last of these. She always picks thematically matched quilting.

I'm including lots of closeups of this quilt because it's one of my favorites, I love all the blocks with the small, precise piecing!

Isn't that precision piecing to die for? It's harder to see the quilting on this one but it's a sort of spiky flower or flame pattern.
These final five quilts were all assembled and quilted by me from Gail's blocks.
I think I mentioned before how many people sent in patriotic or R/W/B backings and bindings as well as blocks. Thank you all!
We put together a beautiful and cohesive set of quilts this year, perfect for veterans and their families.
This one is made from 2" square units (and smaller)!
I don't know where she finds the patience.
Of course I saved my favorite for last, I get the impression these blocks were made from all the itsy bitsy leftovers of all the others.
Even the white parts are pieced from little scraps. Accordingly, I quilted it with a pretty tight stipple.
Hopefully you can see the white background below it pieced from scraps, some not much bigger than a quarter inch.
There are HSTs and flying geese hidden in here that measure less than half an inch.
Thank you Gail C, Tammy, Kathy, Nicki, Gail H, Cyndy, Linda, Karen, and many others who contributed in various ways to the Stars block drive. You can see the past three rounds of finishes here, here, and here.
Stars Drive By The Numbers:
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.
