Spring Sunshine on a Cold Day

It's cold here! I know it isn't as cold as it is some places, but for Texas it's been steadily cold and wet and I've had about enough.  Time for some sweet spring colors with quilts 19-22 of last year's Spring Pinwheel drive. 

These tops were made by Gail and sent in as kits with their backing and bindings. I love the backing fabrics she finds! 

Aren't those old fashioned labels on the backing too cute? 

I quilted these with a cozy stipple and they went up to the hospital with the last batch which put us past 750 total quilts.

I have just a few more of these to finish, 3 I think, and then this block drive will be all wrapped up!

The blocks that have come in for the string drive so far and looking really good! I'm glad so many of you have tried the tutorial and haven't found it too difficult. Sundae has been sleeping on top of the block pile like the Princess and the Pea. 

Thank you for your positive comments on my last post.  I've had a few days in a row off this week which was a welcome break.  

 Covered in Love is a 501(c)(3) charity that donates quilts to patients dying in the hospital, over 700 so far! The Jan/Feb drive is going on now.  Check out the main post HERE if you want to get involved.

  1. I loved this block drive! Cheerful quilts for sure. I always try to find the blocks I submitted. Sometimes I’m successful and sometimes I’m not. So many pretty blocks in each block drive. Thanks for all the work you do! On the quilts and especially in your “day job”, “ Nurses Rock”

  2. Lovely, spinny block quilts! You're right, Gail finds the perfect backings :)

  3. What a beautiful breath of fresh air those quilts are, Kat!! Thanks for sharing and I'm SEW glad that you enjoyed a few days off work.

  4. Wait! Where is a picture of Sundae on top of the pile of quilts?

  5. Great choices for the backing fabrics.

  6. Beautiful quilts! A big thanks to Gail for all you do for CiL. These quilts are full of freshness & warmth.

  7. Wonderful quilts and so creative on the backings. Kat, I can't even wrap my head around all the wonderful designs you've come up with over the years.
