Community Quilts from Ronda

Ronda has been busy working on quilts.  She went above and beyond with these adding borders even.

Ronda writes:
I have two more completed quilts ready for donation.  The first top was sent to me from Ann H. of Winters, California.   She also sent extra fabric that I’m guessing was meant to be backing, but I opted to use it to add a couple more borders to make it a little larger.”  

The original top was about 33″ square, so after adding the extra borders, it is now 44″ square.”

I used backing sent to me from Karen S. in Chino, California.  The second picture where I flipped a corner of the top over to show the backing is not showing the real color of the fabric.”

The whole picture of the back is more true to color.  That second picture makes it look pinkish, but it really is orange.  This will go to the Ronald McDonald House.

The next top was sent to me from…” Continue reading

Community Quilts: The Ronda Edition

Ronda has been busy and has sent some finished quilt pictures my way.  I’ve recently had quite a few finished quilt pictures come my way so I am giving you an added extra treat squeezing in an extra post of community quilts this week.

She also sent along the backing and binding fabric to use.”

Diane actually made two identical quilts, so be looking for the twin to this one sometime in the future.”

My favorite setting for Log Cabin blocks is just like this ~ the barn raising setting.  This quilt is 53″ square and will go to Opportunities Unlimited.”

The second top, back, and binding were all sent to me from“…

Charity Quilt from Ray

I’ve had a wonderful time working with Ray.  She’s the newer longarmer who has volunteered to finish up some of the tops that have been sent my way.

Ray writes:
Here is the second quilt. Today was a wonderful, warm, sunny day so I took advantage of the weather and got some picks outside. This quilt uses a lot of the same as well as similar fabrics that was in the one I sent pics of earlier. I call them sisters because of the similarities. I used the same backing, binding and quilt design on both. Joann does a great job with piecing and makes longarming them a pleasure.”


This is a disappearing nine patch.  It’s always a great pattern/technique to use for a charity quilt.

I would not have thought to bind with white binding, but I love it!!

Here are the two quilts together that Ray has done… Continue reading

Community Quilts: Ray Edition

I told you a bit ago, I have a new person who contacted me about finishing quilt tops.  I am thrilled!!  Meet Ray!

Ray writes:

“…. It has taken me a bit to get organized and to procure materials to begin work on the 12 quilt ops you sent me. Of course, I had masks to make in the middle of everything as well. I should be sending pics and info on the tops as I get them done as I have my other projects out of the way and can now focus on the 12.

They are all wonderful tops and so interesting in shape and color and design. Love them all.”

The first one I tackled was from Joann in CA. It was a purple square in a square top.”

Here it is all finished… Continue reading
