Hello Quilters! Another month has snuck past us and it's time for the Fall 2021 CiL Block Drive. For September and October I thought we could reprise an old block drive from 2016 when many of you hadn't joined us yet.
The block is called a "tall nine patch" and you can find the tutorial for it here. Last time we made the blocks in a really light color combination. If you want to see how those quilts came out you can find them here and here.
This time I think we'll make the blocks in a saturated Fall color palette. Please draw your inspiration from the colors below.
So that's it, simple. Follow this tutorial in the color palette above.
I can't wait to see all your blocks! I have to admit I'm partial to the drives where you can't tell where one block ends and the next begins.
For anyone new to Covered in Love, we run these block drives every two months. Anyone can participate and make as few or as many blocks as you like. Email CoveredinLoveTx@gmail.com for the address and get your blocks in the mail by the end of October. Our blocks are combined together into quilts to be given to the families of dying patients in East Texas hospitals.
