Two More Finishes

 I was quite productive this week and finished sewing on the binding for two more Covered In Love Quilts.

This is the second Red, White and Blue quilt I have shared.  You can see the first one here.  I believe these blocks were all made last summer.  I think Kat mentioned that these were the last of the blocks from that block drive.

A bright red backing and bright blue binding finished everything off nicely.  

Here is another finish.  I think this one is my favorite.  I love the mix of different sized stars with the framed blocks.  The colors in this quilt are more toward the Americana - lots of creams and tans in place of the white.

I quilted it all over with some simple swirls.

I don't know if you know this but every Covered in Love quilt gets a label.  I always add the label to the backing before I quilt it.

I am now working on sewing the bindings on the sunflower quilts.  I have everything quilted at this point. I guess there are a few movies in my future as I sit and sew.

But this weekend is supposed to be fairly warm and sunny here.  I had a big load of soil delivered so I will be behind a shovel for the next few days.

....and I am excited about it!
Hope you have something fun planned for your weekend too.

Connecting Threads has just announced two new Block of the Month projects

 It is really hard to pick a favorite!

I too like your second finish best because I like star blocks of any sort! Congratulations on another finish. Take care of your body when moving that soil and enjoy those movies!

Sounds like you are going to have a nice weekend; enjoy the beautiful weather. The two finishes look great and it's awesome that the others are already quilted, too.

Yep the second one is my favorite also. It just has a nice variety of blocks to give it interest but not overpower it.

Way to go, you're the best! We are working outside here too. Just got the garden tilled and plants are about to go in.

The 2 quilts look great, Cynthia. You did a wonderful work of love.

I love the addition of creams and tans to r/w/b. Makes the quilts seem more "homey" to me. Lovely finishes! said...

You did a great job combining them into a cohesive top. The quilting makes them shine even brighter. I love making those blocks. I feel as though I should start some even now to use up scraps, but who knows if Kat will change things up this year. Hmmmm, good problems to have. Thank you for all you do for CIL. It really is astonishing that it's close to 800 quilts total now!!
