Yes, just short of a year from it's kick off the 2020 string block drive is wrapping up. Thanks to the many of you who participated in this drive, like Beth T. who made the top above and Kathy C. who quilted it!
I love the gingerbread man backing this quilt! The rest of these were assembled by a combination of Pam M. and me and quilted by me.
The seven quilts here plus those previously posted bring us to a total of 23 out of an expected 24 from this drive. There is still one out in the world with a volunteer quilter, but all the ones I was responsible for are done and I'm feeling accomplished! When #24 comes in I will post it so we can all enjoy it :)
As you know if you have been here a while, I have been experimenting with our traditional string block design over the past few years. This design grew on me but it's not one of my favorites compared to the ones we've done before.
I do like the variety of layouts that can be made. Strings are a never ending source of ideas!
For January I'm thinking about going back to basics with a slight twist, you'll just have to wait and see!
Here are most of the quilts in their "family portrait." They have since been delivered to the hospital, helping to push CiL past 700 quilts.
And here is the block drive By The Numbers for those of you who I know enjoy that. Merry Christmas everyone!
Covered in Love is a 501(c)(3) charity that donates quilts to patients dying in the hospital, over 700 so far! The Nov/Dec drive is going on now. Check out the main post HERE if you want to get involved.
