Almost twelve months later, the Winter Blues quilts from the Nov/Dec 2019 block drive are all done! (Hey, it's less than a year, right?)
All 5 of the quilts in this post were tops made by Gail C. and quilted by me.
I love Gail's beautiful, intricate piecing style and her eye for color. Bonus, she's a local to east Texas!
She usually sends several tops kitted up with backing and binding for each drive we do.
Today I'm really missing the weather I had to take these pictures! It's been cold and drizzly for 3 days now. That's unpleasant enough on it's own, but I also have a stack of quilts I need to photograph!
In order to keep clean quilts cat-hair free they're stored in the dryer after laundering. Once I have a few I move them to a "closet" (box) in the back of my car. After photos they go to the extra bedroom in my parents house until there are enough for delivery. A week or two of bad weather can result in quilts building up everywhere.
Speaking of quilt management in small spaces, Louise is doing a series on her blog about quilting on her boat, which included a wonderful video tour. You should go see it if you haven't!
Here are 18 of the 20 finished quilts from this drive all lined up for a family photo! Love this picture!! I used to do these with all the drives but it got harder to do as the drives got larger and took longer to wrap up.
Here's the "by the numbers" for this drive. The Sept/Oct drive is almost over, but there's still time to send in blocks if you want to. The Nov/Dec drive will be up over the weekend, so keep and eye out if you are anxious for a new block design :)
Covered in Love is a 501(c)(3) charity that donates quilts to patients dying in the hospital, over 600 so far! The Sept/Oct drive is going on now. Check out the main post HERE if you want to get involved.
