Fiddlesticks

 I am happy to share the first quilt finish of the Covered in Love blocks sent to me by Kat over at Kat and Cat Quilts.




Kat called this block Fiddlesticks.  I really love how these blocks look all together.




Do you see your blocks?  I have to say everyone's blocks were so beautifully done.




Or maybe your blocks are over here...




I still have another stack of blocks to make a second quilt.  
I divided up the blocks into two stacks - 

red block for you...red block for you.
etc.

Turquoise and yellow were the most popular block colors.  
Not a lot of pink, purple or green people out there!



I quilted irregularly space horizontal lines in a light blue thread.  Kat also sent all the backings - this one got a pretty floral with a green inset down the back to make it wide enough.

Thanks to all who donated blocks.  It was so fun to see all the fun scraps!
Quilt #2 is already in the works.  When the blocks are already finished it doesn't take long to get the quilt top together!

Covered in Love is one of the organizations taking quilts this year for the Hands2Help quilt drive.  
I am already planning my quilts for the event!

I was so happy to see that Laurel Burch precuts are now available at Connecting Threads.

The colors are amazing!
