Happy happy Friday! I am headed for some fun in the sun at the beach. (Ok, if we're honest this redhead will be keeping my toes in the sand in the shade.)
Elana sent me this partially finished quilt-as-you-go quilt earlier in the year. She had the rows completed and all the quilting done, I just joined it into a top. So bright and pretty and such good colors and fabrics!
These two single-color quilt tops came from Jeanine. A pink rail fence and a really cool blue plus top.
I wanted to point you toward a couple of other charitable opportunities this week. The first is the Positivity Quilt Along being run by Sew Preeti to benefit Mercyful Quilts. Mercyful Quilts essentially has exactly the same mission as Covered in Love, but at a hospital in California.
The Positivity QAL is running over the course of the summer, so you have plenty of time. And there are prizes! So go check it out.
Next, this isn't connected to any particular organization, but I saw this pattern for "Dignity Bibs" for adults that look like shirts instead of baby bibs. I think this is an awesome idea and would be appreciated by any nursing home or someone taking care of an elder adult at home.
Sarah W. sent in these next 3 tops. The first one is very different from the others, bright and modern stripes!
I like how this top looks like plaid when you get a little distance from it. The applique hearts are from a pretty floral and the background patterned brown fabric is very soft, maybe a lawn fabric.
Lastly, this one has pretty fabrics and applique tulips at the ends.
I had an especially perfect backing fabric to go along with this top, thanks to generous donations!
I lost track of Fudge the other day while I was sewing. He gave himself away by holding paws with his sister :)
Covered in Love is a 501(c)(3) charity that donates quilts to patients dying in the hospital, over 800 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.
