It's Fall, Y'all from Kat & Cat Quilts

Many of the blocks in this quilt are from Beth H.

 Happy Friday :) I hope you all had a very nice Thanksgiving with the people close to you. I has rained ALL week but the sun finally came out today and got some quilt pictures so I can make posts for you! Also real quick I wanted to draw your attention to this post about an opportunity to support another organization like CiL running a block drive. 

Photo bomb by my new porch cat (stray). She doesn't have a name yet, I've been calling her "My Friend." She ...

Stars and Stripes from Kat & Cat Quilts

Happy weekend again quilters! Fall is finally here, and I even officially had to turn on the heater for the first time! Our little town's annual harvest festival will be this weekend and I'm looking forward to all the festivities. 

These four quilts from last summer's RWB block drive were pieced and quilted by Linda D on her long arm. (Linda is a rockstar.) I tried to get some decent up-close shots so you could see her choices for the quilting designs. 

Enjoying the cooler weather, I've been walking at the nature preserve most days. It ...

Yay for Linda from Kat & Cat Quilts

Happy Friday and have some quilts! These were all made by Linda, one of the hard-working quilters who keeps us going. 

This beauty is the cousin of the quilt at the top of this post. Christine sent in that quilt with extra fabric for a border and due to size we decided to save the border fabric for another use.  Linda added some fabric of her own and made this second quilt with the perfect quilting motif. 

I love batik fabrics! I just made a baby quilt for a friend of mine with batik fabrics that I will show you ...

Textured Quilts Finished from Kat & Cat Quilts

The blue and white textured quilts from last winter's block drive are done! I don't think it's a secret that this block drive has been my favorite in a long time. These are such cool blocks!

Linda, bless her heart, assembled and quilted all of these.  I really like her choice to quilt over the designs. It pins down some of the flappy bits so that they aren't too wild but the designs are still 3D and tactile. The first 4 are made from block drive blocks and the last one was made completely by Linda ...

More Beauties from Kat & Cat Quilts

Is it hot where you are? Because it's gotten really hot here. Summer has arrived with a bang. Patricia B. sent in these beauties this week! 

I really like the fountain pen border on this one. You can see some of Patricia's previous quilts here

I hope you're all doing well going into the summer and looking forward to fun camping and bbq's and that sort of thing.

I came across a quilty blog recently I want to share with you.  Melva did a block series based on letters she found in her grandparents belongings.

Last of the 2021 Strings (and Friends) from Kat & Cat Quilts

Happy Friday once again, quilt-y friends! At long last I have photos of that last quilts from the 2021 block drive. 

If you remember, the 2021 drive was the one where you all made string blocks that were foundation pieced directly onto the batting. 

With another block drive wrap up comes another map:

At the same time, I wanted to do a round-up of some more string quilts that have been completed.

Top by Pam C, quilted by Linda

These two tops were sent in by Pam C. some time ago and finally finished by Linda on her longarm.

Top ...

Fall Tall Nines from Kat & Cat Quilts

The first ten quilts from the Fall Tall 9 Patch Drive have been finished!  Pam assembled and quilted these blocks sent in by Susan.

I can't get enough of these colors and I hope you feel the same.  The blocks from Cindy were also assembled and quilted by Pam.  

Irene sent in these blocks that Pam completed. I had to take a close up of the awesome saturated fabrics.

Lastly for this group from Pam, this quilt is made from blocks sent in by Jane and Kathleen.  Usually I mix the block from a drive all together, but if ...

Quilt Roundup from Kat & Cat Quilts

Some big quilts today along with some big news! This great big, beautiful top was pieced by Sherrill and quilted by Pam. 

The big news is that after 7 years Covered in Love is expanding into a second hospital! As you may have gathered from my comments before, there are two very large hospitals in Tyler and they sit side by side.  With everyone's generous support and many new people joining in we have now grown to the point that we needed to expand!

Back during the Hands2Help Drive last year Becky donated some finished and almost finished quilts ...

Red White and Brrrrr from Kat & Cat Quilts

Blocks by Holly L assembled and quilted by Pam

Hey everyone, sorry I missed posting last week! I usually at least give you a cat picture if I can't get a post together but the whole day completely snuck past me.  As compensation here's another photo Sundae dressing up in my Christmas gifts.  


She's thrilled, really ;) Now back to your regularly scheduled quilt content.

These are the first quilts to be posted from this past summer's RWB patriotic stars drive. This one was pieced and assembled by Linda D., who does so much longarm quilting to ...

Christmas Eve Quilts from Kat & Cat Quilts

Some spring-y quilts for the cold Christmas eve!  I'm making the rounds visiting family, Christmas is my favorite!

Only two quilts today, these were both quilted by Linda. I wanted to show some closeups of the quilting because it's brilliant.   This beautiful batik top came from Christine B, it's butterfly themed.  Look at the lower left corner where the sun is hitting to see the true colors of the border.


There was an additional outer border with large rainbow batik butterflies, but we decided since it made the quilt so large to save that and make a ...

Fiddlesticks Wrap Up from Kat & Cat Quilts

November and a new blocks drive, how time flies! There aren't many things that I find more satisfying than wrapping up a block drive. 

We've just finished off the last of the quilts from last Sept/Oct's Fiddlesticks drive. These first 4 were assembled by Pam and quilted by Linda. 

The quilting design above with the zig-zag circles is one of my favorites. And I love the color layout on the quilt below. Especially from a distance, it looks awesome.

Sort of feathered shell quilting on this one. 

Another really pretty design with pastels on a ...

Great Big Quilts from Kat & Cat Quilts

Some big cozy quilts this week from the long armers! Wendy quilted this one that Sherrill pieced. Perfect for the falling leaves and fall weather.

These colors are similar to the ones in our latest drive and I am loving how those blocks are looking at they come in. 

Priscilla pieced this pastel chain top and Pam quilted it.

And this blue and yellow top was pieced by Jeanine and quilted by Pam. 

Pam has an uncanny knack for perfectly flat, smooth bindings. I'm terribly impressed.

Her bindings are so smooth I had a hard time getting my gravity ...

More Fiddlesticks Quilts from Kat & Cat Quilts

Welcome back to the rainbow forest! That's what I think when I see the quilt above. These are Fiddlesticks quilts 6-12 from last Fall's block drive

The first 2 quilts were pieced and quilted by Pam. She has a great knack for color coordinating the blocks. 

These next four quilts were quilted by Linda. Two were pieced by Pam and two by Linda.  

I would not have made it through the past year without these two ladies and others who have taken on quilting duties to help with the block drives!

You can see previous quilts from this ...

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 ...

Finally Wrapping Up 2019 Block Drive from Kat & Cat Quilts

Yes, that's right, these quilts are late-finishers from the Sept-Oct 2019 block drive.  These four tops were sent in by Gail and "aged" for a while until Linda quilted them! Perhaps a record for longest block drive running?  

Honestly it's nice to have quilts pop up so long after a drive, makes the design seem special again. And of course Linda's wonderful quilting puts them over the top. 

I had to take a picture of some of the backings, too. Gail always sends in the best backings with her tops.  Aren't these batik butterflies a beauty ...

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 ...

Four Finished from Kat & Cat Quilts

Four finished quilts, that came in the mail already finished!  My favorite kind.  These are being dropped off at the hospital today along with a couple dozen others.  

Alice sent in this pink and green diamond pattern quilt

I was getting some papers signed at the hospital the other day and made an impromptu visit to Chaplain Perry. They're made a serious dent in the 50 quilts I dropped off right after Christmas!  Perry said that a lot were given our during Snow-vid week and the week before.  Lots of deaths, and a few people just stressed beyond their ...

Fiddlesticks & Sunflowers Preview from Kat & Cat Quilts

Linda has been a busy bee last year! For the last few drives she finished and sent in completed quilts that I wanted to show you.  This first one is her version of the Fiddlesticks drive, completed with microstippling. 

I find this kind of quilting so impressive! I know I could never have the patience, but I love the texture it produces. 

 

I really love the backing fabric she found to use with for the quilt as well. I haven't started working on the Fiddlesticks block drive quilts yet, still getting the red, white, and blue ones done. But ...

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 ...
