Yahoo!! I have quilts from Ronda to show you today.
“I have a couple more quilts to share with you today.
First up is the brown flying geese and friendship star quilt top that you passed on to me from Jan in Wisconsin.
I paired it with backing from LaNan E. in Primghar, Iowa. The binding is from my stash.
This quilt finished up at 52 X 64 and was donated to Opportunities Unlimited.
The second top was… also one that Jan had sent to you and you passed on to me. I added the red polka dot border, using the fabric you sent to me, to make it a bit bigger and used that same fabric for the backing and binding.
This quilt is 61 X 70 and went to Opportunities Unlimited.”
WOW…I loved them both. Ronda did a great example of how quilt tops come in and are a little smaller than they could be to best serve the place the quilt is being donated to.
So many places where quilts are donated to request that quilts be a particular size. Adding the borders allows finishers to best serve the organization and the recipients.
Amazing work Ronda and Deb. Thanks to all who donated to make these quilts happen.
