Some really beautiful quilts came in a little while back from Patricia B. This stunner with the riotous jewel tones looks like the "Gypsy Wife" -now "Wanderer's Wife"- pattern by Jen Kingwell. (I'd be remiss if I didn't post a link here about why 'g*psy is a slur' and we should refer to the Roma people by their proper name. I had a Romani college friend who I learned from.)
Linguistic choices of the pattern name aside, this quilt is HUGE and it's soooo beautiful! The quilting is hard to see because it's all stitch-in-the-ditch, but it gives tons of texture.
This little star quilt is a contrast to the first one, with flannel and homespun plaids.
I really like the rich color palette.
One more small-ish quilt, a nice little feminine patchwork. You might notice the new photo background in these pictures. At long last the porch has been reassembled and reunited with my house! I am sore but very happy and it's a perfect place to take pictures.
Last but maybe best of all is this HUGE batik quilt with tiny, detailed piecing. This is the "Omigosh!"quilt pattern by Sue Garman.
The small squares are 1/2" finished. You can see my hand in the picture below for reference. I can't even imagine how long making a quilt like this must have taken.
I don't have an email address for Patricia so I wasn't able to send her a Thank You email. So, Thank You Patricia! So glad you found CiL and decided to join in.
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.
