Donations for CiL

 More downsizing and clearing out of stuff has resulted in a couple of UFOs going to new homes. These two went to Covered in Love hosted by Kat and Cat Quilts

Olive Basket Weave: these blocks were made by the Sew Bee Its last time I handed out. They knew they were making blocks for a donation quilt. Along with this top, I sent backing fabric and binding strips. The backing is the same low volume newsprint print used in the blocks and the binding is a very dark purple. 

Keep Positive: I always enjoy making Plus quilts because it's all about the fabrics. This was also always intended to be a donation quilt, but it didn't get finished in time for last spring's Hands 2 Help quilt drive. I sent backing and binding for this one, too. The backing is grey Grunge and the binding is the last of the Paddington Bear print that I had. 

I had the pleasure and entertainment of designing and piecing these tops. They fulfilled their purpose for me. They were both always intended for donations. I'm so glad I was able to send them to someone who can finish them and give them to families losing loved ones. 

Linking up with Confessions of a Fabric Addict and Alycia Quilts.


  1. Both of those are going to wonderful quilts for Covered in Love!!

  2. Two fun quilts! I’m sure Kat and her angels will get them finished and donated.

  3. Great fun scrappy quilts that will give comfort. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Hooray for finding a great place to get them finished! You know CiL is near and dear to my heart. These pretty quilts will be greatly appreciated :)
