Handstitched Wonders from Kat & Cat Quilts

Happy Friday, stitchers! Carolyn sent in these extremely large quilt tops a while back and I sent them to Meloney who long armed them.  I just got them back, all ready to go to the hospital for Covered in Love!

These tops were handstitched! They're on the order of 110" x 95", which made them hard to photograph, particularly with the weather we've been having lately. 

These will be a real comfort to some families at the hospital soon.  And with the cold weather we've been having lately they'll be especially nice to have at home ...

More Amazing Orphans from Kat & Cat Quilts

Happy Friday quilters! I've got more of Louise's handiwork to show you this weekend.  She's been assembling orphan blocks and leftovers for Covered in Love and making a series about it on her blog.

If you've been around for a while you may recognize blocks left over from this block drive in 2016. The strip of triangles came from one of these baby quilts.

Louise did a great job matching block tone and designs to make cohesive quilts.  I made all those tiny, wonky geese from one of those 2.5" charm packs and she actually ...

Nov/Dec Covered in Love Block Drive from Kat & Cat Quilts

Quilters, welcome to the last Covered in Love block drive of 2019! For anyone who is newer around here, CiL runs block drives every 2 months to make quilts that be given to families in the hospital grieving the loss of a loved one.

I know the holidays are a busy time of the year when it's harder to commit time to these kind of charity drives. That's ok! For those of you who can still participate I picked a simple scrap buster block in winter colors.

Design-Seeds "Holiday Tones"
Start by pulling scraps in the color palette ...

Scrappy Gold from Kat & Cat Quilts

Happy Halloween! This week I have three quilts to show you that were sent to my by Erin. You may remember her first two quilts from this post.

Erin sent in 5 scrappy tops along with backings and bindings and I've just finished quilting them all. Thank you Erin! 

These will be going along with a big delivery for Covered in Love up to the hospital this week.

I hope your Halloween was fun and you had enough candy to go around!

If you want to make a few blocks for the Sept/Oct block drive you still can ...

Louise's Quilty Orphans from Kat & Cat Quilts

Happy Fall, Y'all! The cool weather has finally arrived!  This week's quilts come courtesy of Louise, who you might remember from this post took on several boxes of UFOs and orphan blocks from Covered in Love to finish.

Louise has now sent back 10 quilts for CiL made from orphans and UFOs and she's putting together a great series on her blog about how to effectively use assorted blocks and abandoned projects.  (I'm about 80% sure the snowball blocks in the quilt above came from Priscilla). 

This quilt was made from shirting blocks that came from ...

Kathy & Co. Quilts from Kat & Cat Quilts

The last round of Covered in Love quilts Kathy helped with included 3 quilt tops that just needed quilting to finish. Priscilla had sent in another of her great scrappy rectangular 8-patches.

Kathy finished it with a stipple and binding and backing from Holly.  Next was this patriotic top from Michele.

I had the perfect back and binding in my donations, which I sent along with the top. This will fit right in with July's red/white/blue star block drive quilts.

Finally, Barbara had sent in this pretty, soft-colored star top full of florals.

I had a bunch ...

Sweet, Bright, Cross Quilts from Kat & Cat Quilts

Two more beautiful, cozy quilts were finished for Covered in Love this week. Quilter Kathy assembled and quilted these blocks that Johanna sent in and finished them with donated backing and binding!

I love how bright and rich the colors are.  Thank you to everyone who helps to make this possible! I got a sweet message from a family member this week about how much a quilt meant to them in the ICU to help disguise ugly lines and tubes.

With how much I am working now I am relying more and more on others for help with Covered in ...
