Something extra special is happening with this block drive: for the first time ever we have a guest host! Cynthia from Quilting is More Fun Than Housework has graciously offered to not only longarm the quilts from this drive at-cost, but also to assemble the tops! We're also going to be using a block design of hers, one she developed for her great "Scrap-a-Palooza" series.
Everyone needs to contact either me or Cynthia for her address to ship blocks!

These scrappy string color blocks are super easy to assemble and can by put together in a variety of ways. I made a quilt with this tutorial from my own strings a while back. We're going to stick to the same color scheme Cynthia used in her example quilt, blocks in red, orange, yellow, and purple.
You can find Cynthia's tutorial HERE. Blocks will finish at 10.5" square.
Covered in Love gives comfort quilts to patients who pass away in the hospital, which the families then get to keep. If you want to help out we'd love to have you sew along with the block drive! Make as many or as few blocks as you want and send them in to Cynthia by the end of June. Comment (make sure I can contact you) or email CoveredinLoveTx@gmail.com for the address to send blocks.
|If you blog about working on these blocks, or any other charity sewing, you're invited to join the linky. Every Wednesday!|
You can check out finished quilts from previous block drives here.
