M&M Quilts from Kat & Cat Quilts

This week's two quilts for Covered in Love are brought to you by M & M. Michele sent in the tops and Meloney quilted them with her longarm.

First was this large Scrappy Mountain Majesties, quilted with wandering leaves.

Next, this quilt is a HUGE variation on a dresden plate in bright scrappy colors.  Meloney said this one was a challenge, but she knocked it out of the park.

Meloney custom quilted lots of swirls and curlicues to make this beautiful, happy quilt so special.  Thank you ladies for all your help in supporting Covered in Love!

My sleepy, spoiled ...

Old and New from Kat & Cat Quilts

Quick, the sun came out! Hurry and take quilt pictures! Seriously though, it can stop raining any time now.  It would be fine with me!

Kathy returned some newly finished quilts to me this week. She took these vintage sampler blocks Holly gave me and finished them off beautifully for Covered in Love.

I'd also given Kathy one of my oldest UFOs, made in the Four Patch Charm pattern with scrappy batiks.  Thank You Kathy! This one's finally done and ready to go comfort a family.

And finally, here's a sneak peek of a new quilts as ...

Ready for Spring from Kat & Cat Quilts

Some bright colors this week to help lure in Spring. Can you believe it's March already? It has been raining in Texas since September and I am so ready for some sunshine!  The new March/April CiL block drive just went live and it's a Spring theme as well, so be sure to check that out.

How's this for bright? Jeanine sent in two stack of blue string blocks last Fall, the first of which became this top. 

Next, Dhia sent in this quilt she finished from blocks made by the Nurture circle of do. Good Stitches ...

A Thrift Store Find from Kat & Cat Quilts

Happy weekend! Cool quilts this week brought to you by CiL's awesome contributors.  This first one has a cool story. My friend Libby found these UFO shirting blocks in an Idea Store (sort of like a Goodwill) in Illinois and put the top together for me. 

So, the original block maker is a mystery. Libby made the top and I bordered it with donated fabric and quilted it. Now it will go up to the hospital to find a family in need.

This top came from Sandy P., cool scraps with a tan border.  Sandy has sent in some ...

Bright and Scrappy Love-Quilts from Kat & Cat Quilts

Hello and Happy Weekend!  I finished a bunch of quilts in the past couple weeks to share with you.  This first one came as a top from Bonnie and I finished it with donated backing and binding.

I love how all the scrappy stars have different centers, some with itty-bitty squares and different designs.

Next, this scrappy and very floral top from Paula. (Paula previously sent in some pretty tops before.)  Again, I finished it with some generously donated backing and binding!  I didn't take a good picture of the backing, but it's a mix of very pretty ...

(More) Team Finishes from Kat & Cat Quilts

Happy weekend quilters! I have more quilts from the "Other people's UFOs" category finished this week for Covered in Love. The first two tops were sent in by Michele and finished by me.  Backings were some of the ones donated by Gail H.

This pretty, and large, sampler got an all-over stipple. I wish I had the skill and time to do some custom quilting in the open squares, but it's just beyond me.  The hourglass quilt below got a looser stipple. I love the color scheme on this one especially.

This vintage-looking top is another one from ...

Eye- Spy some finished quilts from Kat & Cat Quilts

Fudge-y is proud to present the first 6 quilts from this past year's eye spy block drive for Covered in Love!

I had to take photos inside due to the weather so much of the country is having this week, but these quilts are still pretty spectacular.

I LOVE all the unique, fussy-cut patches.  Each 60"x70" quilt has 168 unique eye-spy images.

One reason I like this block drive so much is because the many different images give family members a lot to look at and opportunities to find something they connect to in the quilt.

The first ...

Oh My Stars! Block Drive Wrap-up from Kat & Cat Quilts

Hello! It's the weekend again and I'm posting the wrap up for the July Red, White, and Blue Stars block drive.   You guys made a dozen great patriotic quilts for Covered in Love.

The last 6 quilts from the drive are here. You can see the first 6 on a previous post here.

I gathered all the blocks with something in the corners to make a sort of "Irish Chain" effect
 My apologies for the slightly dreary looking photos. It's been a overcast and raining in Texas for months. In fact, these were actually done before I ...

Janet's UFOs (A long time coming) from Kat & Cat Quilts

Happy weekend everyone! We're half way through the first month of January already. Two pretty, rich-colored quilts finished for Covered in Love this week. Janet T. sent these two tops in ages ago and I just got the second one finished.

The rail fence top was quilted by me. The fabrics are very rich browns, teals, and purples with gold highlights.

The second top is a very large one using the same fabrics. The setting is simple, but shows off the beautiful Asian-themed fabrics.

My long-arm friend Meloney finished it with a feathery stipple in the perfect teal-brown variegated ...

What to do with a modest baby? from Kat & Cat Quilts

A friend of mine is expecting a new baby soon, and so far the little scamp has kept their bits covered during the ultrasounds. I suppose they are modest?

I started off to make a gender neutral baby quilt using my 60 degree triangle ruler and pulling a color scheme to match this Van Gogh fabric I've had a long time.

In the end, I decided that one was too boy-ish. So I made a little girl quilt, pulling colors from a southwestern flamingo fabric I've had a long time. I think I must have found it in ...
