If you have Bonnie Hunter’s book String Fling, you are likely familiar with this beautiful quilt, Tulip Fields.
Can you believe that a blog reader sent this one to me to machine quilt and send on to donate to a charitable cause?
Well I know a blog reader, Lori from ND is always looking for twin sized quilts for Share House. Lori is a volunteer binder and does a great job with getting quilts finished and onto someone in need. Lori writes:
“Good Morning Jo, This is one of your donation quilts. Christine Y. made the quilt top. And you so generously let me bind and donate the Quilt to ShareHouse. Thank you both so much. Share House has a special place in my heart as one of my family members has used their services with success.
For over 40 years ShareHouse has served adults and the families of those challenged by alcoholism, substance abuse and/or mental health disorders. Their one focus is to help clients begin and continue their lives in recovery.

Oh my, when I saw this quilt my heart went pitter patter. Scrap quilts are my favorite! Yellow was the perfect sashing for this quilt with the red accent! . I know some resident at ShareHouse will treasure this gift. When I was taking the picture of this quilt, the wind came up at just the right time. Lori”
Yahoo! With the great help from Christine for donating the top and Lori’s binding skills another quilt went to someone who can benefit. I love these charity stories. It is always a bright point in my week when I can write one!! Thanks ladies!!
