Sunflower Block Drive Wrap Up

Tammy has 2 more May/June block drives quilts finished on her blog!

Another block drive is in the books; all 5 quilts from the Nov/Dec Sunflowers block drive are done!  The first one, at the top of this page, was assembled and quilted by me.

These next 3 were assembled and quilted by Cynthia from Quilting is More Fun Than Housework.  She helped Covered in Love to get a handful of quilts finished earlier this year. 

You can see Cynthia's pictures of these first two quilts on her blog here. I was expecting Cynthia to make 2 quilts, but she was able to creatively stretch the blocks into 3 by using sashing and borders!

Lovely crinkly texture. 

I know this block was a struggle for many of us, but I just love the quilts that it made. I also love LOVE the color scheme. Definitely will need to use those colors again soon. 

This last quilt of Cynthia's is on her blog here.  You can see that she enhanced the "sunflower" theme with her quilting. 

The fifth quilt was made completely by Linda and you can see it in this post.  As always the Holiday-time block drive is the smallest of the year, but that's ok. Obviously it's a super chaotic time, nevermind in the middle of a Covid surge...  Thanks to every one who participated and huge thanks to Cynthia for helping to get them finished!

I'm just back from a wonderful week at the beach with my extended family

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.
