Hello, friends! Louise here to share some beautiful quilts pieced by Priscilla and finished by me. Priscilla is a generous donor, sending in many coordinated blocks and tops. Let's dive in!
This first quilt was donated as a small top, featuring rail fence blocks interspersed with nine patches and friendship stars. All it needed was a small border, so I added a navy blue animal print. Red flannel backing and simple stippling keep it soft and snuggly.
Next we have a vibrant star block quilt, also completely scrappy. Priscilla has a great eye for value so these stars have excellent contrast! There were plenty of blocks to just set them together with no alternate block or sashing. I think of these as stars, but my husband saw the negative space. Do you see light diamonds or dark stars?
Don't you love a good string quilt? Priscilla made all these blocks and I added a couple borders to bring it up to size.
I love how any color coordinates with truly scrappy blocks like these, and chose bright blue to make the little butterflies pop.
Priscilla sent us a note saying she had received a large amount of fabric from a friend, and would be sewing up some of that for Covered in Love. This pretty blue and cream star top is an example. Such a classic color combination! It was a no-brainer for me to add two coordinating borders to make a nice size quilt.
And finally, we have this bright drunkards path, also made from her friend's stash fabrics. Priscilla stitched the quarter circle blocks, and I decided on the layout.
These happy fabrics inspired me to do fancier quilting, so I stitched feather wreaths in the circles, just for fun. Many thanks to Priscilla for being such a generous and consistent donor to Covered in Love!
Covered in Love is a 501(c)(3) charity that donates quilts to patients dying in the hospital, over 1000 so far! The September/October block drive is live now. Check out the main post HERE if you want to get involved.

Beautiful! Great job ladies. On the star quilt, I first saw the dark stars but after reading your comment, I looked again and saw the light diamonds. How fun!ReplyDelete
Good work Priscilla and Louise! My fav is the first one but they are all fabulous. I do love scrappy quilts and these all look so comforting too. I would wrap up in any of them. And I saw the Stars on the Star quilt first.ReplyDelete
