Of course Mina's signature quilts are these friendly scrappy villages. I just did a rough count and I think CiL has received about 17 of them from her (plus the 3 un-quilted tops I have right now makes 20!)
The pattern for these village quilts is a free one from Quiltville. You can find it here along with a tutorial.
Always lots to spy, like this Mermaid waving from her door. I love the sentiment of these quilts, the idea of the support of a loving "village", as well as the busy eye-spy element.
Gold star for getting the first Red, White, and Blue Star Quilt done of the year! Mina sent in a whole bunch of blocks as well as this finished quilt. Thank you Mina, you're a STAR!
Cooler weather has arrived here and we are all enjoying it. The kitties don't mind at all snuggling up for a nap and some Quilt Inspection on the couch.
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.
