More CiL Love

I am still working away on all of the blocks for Covered in Love that have been sent in. 
So much generosity!

For quilt # 6, I grouped the colors in a plus layout, with red as the focus in the center.  I still have not had to repeat any designs!

For the quilting, I did some big easy loops.  On the back, I used some dotted leftover backing fabric from previous quilts and added a strip of floral for a fun detail.

 And I just finished piecing up quilt top #7.  It shouldn't surprise anyone that I used some blocks to create a colorwash effect.  I hope to get this one quilted up this weekend.  The backing will be a series of horizontal strips of leftover fabrics also going from light to dark.

I think this one is my favorite so far!

There are two more quilts up on my design wall just waiting to be sewn up for a total of NINE quilts made from these blocks.  

Thanks you, Thank you, Thank you!
