2020 Oh My Stars! Wrapup from Kat & Cat Quilts

Thank you to those who have responded to my appeal for backing fabrics! I did get one mystery box this week, someone ordered 108" width fabric from Marshall Dry Goods and shipped it to me.  Thank you, whoever you are.  Several of you have ordered from or recommended Marshall Dry Goods to me, I had never heard of them before and I love their designs and prices!


Happy weekend quilters! We're wrapping up last year's red white and blue block drive just in time for the 2021 drive to start. Starting off with a few bonus quilts, Erin ...

Star Quilts and the May-June Block Drive from Kat & Cat Quilts

Details about the May-June block drive at the bottom of the post.

It's getting a little closer to summer time everyday and I have more red, white, and blue stars quilts to share.  These always remind me of July and summer BBQs.  

These first four quilts were tops made by Gail and quilt by Linda on her longarm.  I visited Chaplain Perry at the hospital today and he again mentioned that the red, white, and blue or patriotic quilts are usually the ones that first grab people when they look at available quilts. 

These past 2 months, while I ...

Red, White, and Blue Quilts Delivered from Kat & Cat Quilts

Linda and I (but let's be honest, mostly Linda) are still chugging away on last year's RWB blocks.  We've just got a few quilts left to go from these, which as many of you know are perennial favorites at the hospital. 

These went up with a delivery last Friday while I there with my first level students.  In order to make the drop off work Chaplain Perry actually had to take my keys and go load the quilts from my car into his since I'm not allowed to leave the building while my students are there ...

Merry Christmas, Have Some Quilts! from Kat & Cat Quilts

Merry Christmas quilters! This is my faaaaavorite holdiday; I love the whole Christmas season.  I am now working on a Covid unit and volunteered to work the holiday so my family celebrated on Wednesday.

These first two quilts were assembled and quilted by Linda D. from blocks sent in by Mina during the July/August block drive.

There's another star quilt that Mina sent in in this post, so that's a total of three from her for the summer stars drive! 

As many of you know, these patriotic star quilts are some of the most popular ones that ...

Mina from Texas from Kat & Cat Quilts

This week's post is a celebration of one of Covered in Love's most dedicated volunteers, Mina from Texas! Since way way back Mina has been sending in block as well as some beautiful tops and this post features 4 finished quilts she recently sent in.

Of course Mina's signature quilts are these friendly scrappy villages.  I just did a rough count and I think CiL has received about  17 of them from her (plus the 3 un-quilted tops I have right now makes 20!)

The pattern for these village quilts is a free one from Quiltville. You ...

Oh my stars! {July-August Block Drive} from Kat & Cat Quilts

Welcome to July! We made it, and it is time for the annual Covered in Love red white and blue stars block drive. This is year 5!

Please check out last year's post here for all the details about the blocks for this fun drive.

My work week felt very long, and so this post is short and to the point. The heat here is incredible. I hope you all have a happy, safe, and cool July 4th weekend :)
