Karin sent me pictures of finished community quilts and I’m so happy to be sharing them with you today.
“Grab a cuppa and have a seat. I have 4 finishes for you today! First up, we have another amazing quilt from the talented Cresco ladies, perfect for the car lover!
Looks like they started with a simple little panel block and added cornerstones and map swatches, then a round of stripes, then brightened it up with rounds of yellow and green, finally reaching that pretty flame fabric that pulls it all together. I started stretching my chops on this one, quilting piano keys, freehand no less, ribbon candy, loops, and swirls and I tried a hook and point, similar to your hook and bumps.
I may have gotten lost or boxed in once or twice, but a finish is a win, in my book. :)
For the backing, I used some great I Spy fabric, generously provided by Susan McC, from Austin, TX, and the remainder of a couple of sheets you had sent. Batting was courtesy of your readers’ donations, thank you sooo sooo much!
Finishing up at 40 x 48, this quilt and the next 3 are going to our local fire station to comfort someone in need. I had the pleasure of meeting the Captain last week, and he told me that they are the busiest station in the county, and all donations are gratefully received and appreciated.
