Covered in Love First Finish

Thanks to so many generous people who have sent in donation blocks, I have already been able to finish up the first quilt for Covered in Love.  You can read more about this project here.



For this quilt, I laid the colors out in a diagonal layout.  All of the blocks were beautifully made and the quilt top went together really quickly!




I used a bright white thread and quilted this one with some swirls.
I love that the sashing is built right into the block!




Kat had sent some backing pieces that were also generously donated so I used this lovely purple piece for the backing on this one.




Here is where all the blocks have originated from so far - with many of the packages coming from states already colored in.



And I have already laid out the second quilt.  For this one, I chose a weave design. 
Now I just need to sew it up!

I still have more blocks so a third quilt is definitely going to happen.
This block design is one of my Scrap-A-Palooza quilts - if you are looking for some ideas for your own scrap or donation quilts, you will find lots of ideas in the gallery page.

Have a great weekend!

  9. So pretty! I guess I'd better get my blocks sent off to you so you can color in Colorado! I needed to make one more yellow block - the one I made earlier in the week was all wrong. I don't know what I did, but it ended up shorter than 10.5 inches! Thanks for making these for CIL!

    These quilts are just so pretty. I love the colors in the fabrics, and close inspection shows just how fun the different fabrics themselves are. ~smile~
