During the COVID 19 pandemic Covered in Love continues to make quilts to support grieving families when relatives pass away in the hospital. This is something that will, unfortunately, probably become even more necessary in the coming weeks and months. When loved ones pass with limited or no visitation and there can be no funeral or viewing of the body something tangible to hold onto to mark the transition becomes even more important.
We are not, as an organization, sewing masks, gowns, or other personal protective equipment at this time. Many other organizations are filling that role and so CiL will continue with the mission we have had from the beginning.
Greetings stitchers! Another week gone by of sheltering and sewing. I hope you are all still well. My current job at the hospital is on hold (elective procedures) so I'm at home too.
I've got two beauties to show off this week made by my do. Good Stitches NURTURE circle and finished by Jenny S (isn't her quilting stunning?) The split nine, above, you may recognize as the block that inspired our Sept/Oct block drive.
This one was a disappearing hourglass that the group did last year. Again, Jenny's lovely quilting makes it shine.
With all of my new found free time I have put together tops from 3 sets of blocks that I had from previous NURTURE circle sew months.
These hourglass blocks were leftover from the making of this quilt quite a while back. I had the perfect border fabric in my donations that complimented the colors!
This top is bigger than just the blocks shown, in fact it finished at 64"x80"! The third top I didn't get a picture of, but it is the same design as this one in a red, grey, blue color scheme.

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.
