Fall Tall Nines

The first ten quilts from the Fall Tall 9 Patch Drive have been finished!  Pam assembled and quilted these blocks sent in by Susan.

I can't get enough of these colors and I hope you feel the same.  The blocks from Cindy were also assembled and quilted by Pam.  

Irene sent in these blocks that Pam completed. I had to take a close up of the awesome saturated fabrics.

Lastly for this group from Pam, this quilt is made from blocks sent in by Jane and Kathleen.  Usually I mix the block from a drive all together, but if there are sets large enough to make whole quilts from sometimes it's nice to keep groups together. 

The rest of these quilts were quilted by Linda.  This first one is her contribution to the drive that she made from her own stash. 

Again, had to get a close up of those "nature" fabrics with the saturated colors. 

Linda assembled and quilted these blocks from the drive. 

These blocks look like they might by mostly from one maker, but I lost track of who. If you recognize your blocks let me know in the comments!

One of the things I really like about the Tall 9 block is how different they look depending on how you arrange them.

This FMQ sunflower design is one of my new favorites!

Yet another layout option.

Linda chose a interlocking boxes FMQ design that I think complements the layout. 

And one last layout design. Which is your favorite? I think I like the plain rows best. 

I'm including this quilt, also made by Linda, here for its similar color scheme. For some reason it seems retro to me?  

Thank you, Pam and Linda, and everyone who contributed to the block drive!

One of the joys of a porch is a door mat. 

Covered in Love is a 501(c)(3) charity that donates quilts to patients dying in the hospital, over 900 so far! The January/February drive is running now, check out the main post HERE if you want to get involved.

  1. Ten Tall AWESOME Nines!!! Lots more layout options than I ever though possible. Love, love, LOVE those fabulous Fall colors, too!

  2. Beautiful quilts and awesome doormat!!!

  3. Those are all so great - what a fun variety of quilts!

  4. what's the name of the last quilt pictured on your post, just above the picture of the cat door mat? It's a very striking quilt.

  5. These are all so beautiful!! It amazes me how one pattern can be made to look so many different ways depending on fabrics and arrangement. Very nice!!

  6. Oh, I really love those fall colors all together in the quilts. I never take pictures of the blocks I send & always forget which ones are mine after the quilts are made. I like the "row" layout the best but all are beautiful with their rich, fall colors. I forgot to comment last time on how much I like your porch. Now it's even better with that door mat!

  7. Lovely quilts. I spotted some of mine. I guess I'm the only one who thinks purple is a fall color. Oh well, I do hope that didn't spoil the assembly. These are really gorgeous and what a variety of layouts. You give us such great ideas, each and every time.

  8. Those are so pretty! I prefer the straight setting, but they're all nice. That fabric feeling: I may have used purple, too. I bet more purple will pop up here and there.
