Pretty Quilts in the Sunshine

Happy Friday! I have another batch of finished quilts to show off. Have you noticed that we have more and more finished quilts coming in? The supplemented postage from Give Back Box is really helping I think.  

Halley O. sent in a box with an assortment of things, including these two quilts that just needed binding. I was able to quickly finish them. Both of them are really big! This second one is made with Amanda Jean Nyberg's "Good Neighbors" fabric line. 

This next green quilt was sent in by Wendy when she finished long-arming another quilt. Such a charming scrappy design! 

Next, Beth H. sent in 2 quilts.  This one has the cutest fabric with little forest animals.

The new hospital we've just expanded into has a NICU, so I will set this quilt aside for them. (Note: PLEASE don't flood me with baby quilts! I know they're fun and easy to make but 98% of our quilts still go to adults and I don't have room to store tons of baby quilts.)

Close up of the cute fabrics.  I really like the pattern on this second quilt. It's simple but compelling. Maybe a future block drive...

Covered in Love is a 501(c)(3) charity that donates quilts to patients dying in the hospital, over 900 so far! During March/April we are supporting the Hands2Help Challenge instead of our normal block drive.  Check out the main post HERE if you want to get involved.

  1. These are all such beauties!! Wow!! I can't find a favorite at all. The colors give me hope for Spring soon coming around the bend. I understand why you don't want baby quilts but yes, they really are so easy to make. I can't really manage finishing a larger quilt on my domestic. I'm just not that good at FMQ yet. Thanks for the months off to catch up. I'm working on a few things for hands2help and already reached out to Bernie to see if they'll take a larger quilt top that I have. So many charities, so much need. Hope you're able to relax a bit and enjoy a few less pressured days. Thanks for all you do. Keep sharing all these beauties, though it does make me want to sew and sew and never stop!

  3. Enjoy your break, Kat! Thanks for supporting the Hands2Help Comfort Quilt Drive. Now. if I could only find the H2H project that I was working on at the end of last year's challenge... Ugh! Moving house is SEW challenging!

  4. I really like that final block design, too. You're right that it would make a neat block drive! Many thanks to Beth, Wendy and Halley for these great quilts!

  5. Such beautiful assortment of quilts this week. The green one that Wendy sent it really spoke to me today. I like that last one for a block drive too. I'm so thankful to see more people contributing to CiL.
