Quilts for West Texas-Part #8

Here is the very last of the quilts for West, Texas….

Quilt-1
Isn’t this quilt WONDERFUL.  This one was made by Kay (I think).  I think it must have been a block exchange quilt because the blocks all had initials on them.  This one needed a king size batting and I didn’t have one.  Then (believe it or not) I found one for $2 at the thrift store.  The batting was a poly batting but I went with it.

I know for some it’s taboo to use poly batting but it actually worked nicely.

Quilt-2
This is floral stipple pattern from the Pajama Quilter.  I love it and will use it often.  I couldn’t match the fabric color of the green or pink so I ended up binding it in white.  It wasn’t my first choice but I did what I had to do.

Way back on April 18th I sent out a challenge hoping to get 10 quilt tops to quilt…I counted and ended up with 18.  Can you believe you all were so helpful??  I also got in some money to help with batting costs, backing costs and postage.  AMAZING!!!!  The first box I sent cost $28 so the donations were greatly appreciated (there are three more going out as I write this).

I had a blast!!  If anyone has some Quilt of Valor tops that they would like quilted, drop me a note.  I will do one a month for free and send them on for you.  Here’s my email address.  Feel free to contact me at rogjok@iowatelecom.net.  I’d like to do something to help….
