Covered in Love Second Finish

 I know I thought I was going to be sharing the second FiddleSticks quilt this week, but I didn't get all of the binding completed.  But I will share the first of the red, white and blue quilts I am working on for Covered in Love.



This quilt is made with 12.5" star blocks of all different designs.  For this first quilt, I used all the star blocks that had a white background to them.



There wasn't quite enough white blocks for the entire quilt so I added in some more colorful blocks in the center of the quilt.



I really like how the white blocks act as a nice frame to the quilt.  A big thanks to all those who contributed some stars.  I know these patriotic quilts are very well received by families of veterans.




I received enough blocks to make a total of three quilts.  I am really enjoying all the beautifully made blocks and the great star designs!


Covered in Love is one of the recipients of this year's Hands2Help quilt drive.  You can read more about that here.

Hope all of you have a wonderful weekend!

  10. Great, cohesive design! I love how each star's points reach out and hold the hands of their neighbor's :)
