Finished Quilts for Covered in Love from Kat

Recently Kat from Kat and Cat Quilts posted photos of two finished quilts for Covered in Love. I had sent her the tops last year when I knew I wouldn't be able to finish them but I still wanted them to go to a good cause. They're both large throws, in the 60 x 75" range.

The first is a Plus quilt. I like Plus quilts for donation quilts because they're fun to make and they have an uplifting, positive vibe. I especially enjoy curating the palette and laying out the design. This one was inspired by the colors in one of the prints, and when I raided my stash for more fabrics to go with it, I found the last of my Paddington Bear yardage. I sent binding, so he even makes an appearance there, too. This is Kat's photo that she posted of the finished quilt. 

The other one is this Basket Weave that was a Sew Bee It project. The girls in the bee made the blocks for me. I provided the two outer strips and the center strip for each block, and they chose fabrics that harmonized. The variety of prints is wonderful, and the palette could be masculine or autumnal. Kat's photo is wonderful, too. She captured that rich olive true to color, something I have not been able to achieve. 

I'm so glad these tops are now finished quilts and they're going to families supported by Covered in Love. Thank you, Kat.

  1. I saw those on Kat's blog. Your quilt tops made for a couple of lovely donation quilts, Jan!

  2. Two beautiful quilts - glad you found the finished photos.

  3. Hi Jan, I just saw your post on Sarah's blog of the Y2K quilts for Covered in Love. I just sent an email to Sarah with my donations too. I do not have a blog any more but do follow a few as time permits. I miss seeing you and Cheri. Dar

  4. Love them both, great choices for donation quilts.

  5. Excellent choice to send these to Kat so you didn't have to move them and they both will bring comfort to families when they need it most.
