Yes, that's right, these quilts are late-finishers from the Sept-Oct 2019 block drive. These four tops were sent in by Gail and "aged" for a while until Linda quilted them! Perhaps a record for longest block drive running?
Honestly it's nice to have quilts pop up so long after a drive, makes the design seem special again. And of course Linda's wonderful quilting puts them over the top.
I had to take a picture of some of the backings, too. Gail always sends in the best backings with her tops. Aren't these batik butterflies a beauty?
I really enjoyed sharing some of my favorite things to watch with you last Friday and I got some great recommendations, too. I hope some of you found something you like to watch.
Lovely swirly feathers, they look like butterflies.
This drive is a good reminder of why I like half-square triangle designs so much. They are just so versatile and can be laid out so many different ways.
Sweet flower quilting!
Believe it or not, this backing is actually more saturated and deeply colored in person!
This lovely blue patchwork top was a bonus one sent along by Gail and finished by Linda. It's so charming and cozy looking.
As much as I love elaborate swirling quilted feathers, I'm a sucker for geometric designs like these double zigzags.
Linda sent along this quilt of her own as an H2H donation. I'm pretty sure the block is one of those where you sew one block and then cut it apart, similar to a disappearing nine patch, but I'm not sure what the original block was.
A close up of the awesome back-and-forth wiggles quilting. Thank you so much Linda!
Covered in Love is a 501(c)(3) charity that donates quilts to patients dying in the hospital, over 700 so far! During May/June Tammy is hosting our block drive on her blog. Check out the main post HERE if you want to get involved.
