It's still July, technically, and we've got some of Jan/Feb's string quilts done! These are always a super popular block drive so it's a marathon to get them all turned into quilts.

Covered in Love is blessed by the problem of too many blocks! Long-time supporter has Holly jumped in to help with assembly and quilting and she put together the one above.
This year's block design was an experiment and we are experimenting with different layouts as they come together. You can see the design Tammy S. did here. That one works best with sashing.

Speaking of Tammy, she assembled and quilted these last two quilts from block drive blocks I sent her.
I really like this sort of flowered leaf panto she uses sometimes.
Thank you to everybody who is helping us keep up with the need for quilts! If anyone wants to throw in yardage with your blocks we are running short on large cuts (1yd or more) for backings at the moment.
I wanted to share this story Chaplain Perry texted me. This was one of the unusual cases where a quilt was given out in a case where no one was passing away, but an exceptional patient needed extra comfort. (Word of advice, never let anything you own go into the hospital laundry).
Covered in Love is a 501(c)(3) charity that donates quilts to patients dying in the hospital, over 600 so far! The July/August drive is going on now. Check out the main post HERE if you want to get involved.
