Community Quilts from Ronda

I have community quilts from Ronda to share with you today.

I have a few more quilts to share with you today. Susan L. of Manchester, Iowa, sent this pretty green and yellow top. I paired it with the green backing from Karen S. of Chino, California.
I used the same green fabric for the binding. This quilt is 64 X 85.

Remember that I told you a while back that I was helping my sister learn to quilt?  I have a lot of scraps leftover from backings or borders or whatever, so I gave her a bunch of those and she made this next quilt with…


the neutral stars and the scrappy backgrounds.

The backing came from you, Jo, and I made the binding from my stash.


This quilt is 62 X 78.

Lori M. of Titusville, Florida sent the large red, blue, yellow, and white rail fence top.

(Sorry about the small photo.  I tried several things to make it bigger but it wouldn’t work)

The backing I used for this one also came from you. The binding came from Judy M. of Lynchburg, Virginia.  This quilt finished up at 55 X 77.

Since all three of these quilts are nice lap-sized quilts, they all went to Opportunities Unlimited.  With the weather turning colder here, they were much appreciated!”

What a great bunch of quilts.  Please note that when Ronda says the fabric came from me.  Some did come from my stash.  Some came from you readers and I passed it to Ronda.  Thanks so those fabric donations.  Ronda is always in need of backing and binding fabric.  You can find Ronda as number two on the Donation Page.

Thanks so much to Ronda for finishing these and a big shout out to Ronda’s sister for joining the quilting club!  Thanks to every who helped make these happen.

    Just read about a tornado in Rudd IA. Maybe just west of you. I hope all is well with your family and friends. Stay safe. Prayers for all in IA.
