Community Quilts: The Ronda Edition

Ronda sent some pictures of quilts she recently finished up.  These are so fun and I’m sure will be well loved quilts.

Here are some more donation quilts that I have to share with you.  The first one is the red, yellow, and blue rail fence top that was sent to me from Karen S. in Chino, California.  I added the inner white border from my stash and the blue outer border and binding came from fabric sent to me from Sandra in Texas.”
The backing was a duvet cover at one time and sent to me from Roxanne H. in Virginia.  I took it apart at the seams and used the cute animal print side for the rail fence.”


This quilt finished at 41 X 53 and was donated to the Ronald McDonald House.”


The second quilt… Jane Z. of Flora, Indiana, sent me a partially assembled top with a few more blocks to add to it, plus some more of the same fabric to make more blocks.  She said it was a UFO of her mother’s.”


It finished at 54 X 61.  I used the other side of the duvet cover from Roxanne for the backing on this quilt.”  
This went to Opportunities Unlimited.  It is located in a residential neighborhood where they have nine homes that house 37 residents.  They have one large facility where they have activities and therapy and such.  These are all people who have had some kind of brain trauma and are in wheelchairs.  Not anyone born with physical or mental problems, but instead, just those who have suffered an accident of some kind.  They were very happy to have the lap sized quilts as they take the residents out for walks all year round and it’s nice to have a quilt to tuck around them for warmth here in the midwest.”

WOW…Awesome quilts and what an awesome duvet cover!!  It worked PERFECTLY on both quilts.  I so love how these quilts come together with the aid of many.  Ronda is such a sweet gal to collect the goodies and make them into finished projects.  Hats off to you all!!

    Two very cute quilts! I am sure they will be appreciated! I never think about using duvet covers but I have bought new sheets to use.

    Jo, I will add duvet covers to list of watch for thrift store items, what a great idea. Isn’t Rhonda the charity quilter that lives in Dallas? I live in Fort Worth and would love to send items to someone closer than Iowa. No point in something traveling there and back. If not Rhonda, I’d swear you have mentioned someone in Texas. Please send them my email. Thanks, Deborah

    Using Duvet covers is an excellent idea and I will be watching for them at the thrift store. Ronda does an amazing job with items sent to her, thanks for helping so many organizations Ronda.

    Two great quilts for worthy causes. I love how both sides of the duvet cover were used and how well they suited each donation quilt.

    Great job by all. I like the duvet fabric, I’ll have to start looking for them at the thrift stores. Thanks ladies for sharing.
