Covered In Love, 6/21


I just finished sewing the borders on the quilt, which I had been calling Tossed Salad.  In about one week I turned a bunch of old strips and about 100 neutral 4-patch blocks into a quilt that I'm happy to donate to Covered In Love.  

My granddaughter stopped by just now and kindly held the quilt for a quick photo.  It will finish about 50x60 inches.  All the fabrics were from my stash.  The sashing fabric was bought for a dress many years ago, but has been used in several quilts. 

I'm going to show it at our quilt group next Monday and then send it along to you, Kat.  I'm really delighted that all these unloved fabrics will give some comfort to people in need.

  1. It's beautiful! Great job using up those unloved fabrics, and thank you so much!

  2. This is lovely! The dark sashing (navy, or black?) really sets off the green and cream blocks. Well done!

  3. Very nice Paula. Happy you could use your scraps for the quilt.

  4. what a good way to use your 4 patch blocks and the sashing/border fabric works so well with them
