November and a new blocks drive, how time flies! There aren't many things that I find more satisfying than wrapping up a block drive.
We've just finished off the last of the quilts from last Sept/Oct's Fiddlesticks drive. These first 4 were assembled by Pam and quilted by Linda.
The quilting design above with the zig-zag circles is one of my favorites. And I love the color layout on the quilt below. Especially from a distance, it looks awesome.
Sort of feathered shell quilting on this one.
Another really pretty design with pastels on a diagonal.
Little flowers in the quilting and a scrappy pink binding.
This top came from Edna. I has a cool textured blue background. I found a nice multicolor backing and quilted it with a stipple.
This top came from Beth T, also with textured blues. The backing for it was a flannel so it was a bit of a pain to quilt but it's extra cuddly.
Lastly, this top with some beautiful batiks came from Holly L on a textured yellow fabric (love those textured backgrounds!)
All together the Fiddlesticks drive made 19 beautiful and unique quilts!
Covered in Love is a 501(c)(3) charity that donates quilts to patients dying in the hospital, over 800 so far! The Nov/Dec drive is running now, check out the main post HERE if you want to get involved.
