I have quilts to share with you…Barbara was a busy gal and finished all of these. I believe they all came from the Cresco Ladies but I’m not sure. Some in another post that I thought came from the Cresco Ladies actually came from Sandie. I am terrible and keeping up with it all. I think I saw the name and thought Sandra from the Cresco ladies. Also, I do best remembering a name with a face and with blog people, I rarely see a face.
Onto Barbara’s finishes…She writes:
Here are three more finishes:
The first is a beautiful Christmas Star quilt. I found a cute backing that features cats singing in a choir and the quilting is done with tan thread using rulers to create diamonds in the sashing and borders. This quilt is being donated to a church quilting group that gives Christmas baskets to local Seniors.
Next is a really pretty floral quilt that reminded me of fall with its oranges and golds. I used a hearts and loops pantograph with gold thread and a leafy fall print for the backing.
And last is this special quilt made with blocks that feature barn quilts. The outline quilting highlights each barn quilt, while the sashing and borders are quilted using a wavy ruler. These two quilts have been donated to a local nursing home for use by the residents there.
Thanks to the Cresco ladies for making and donating these special quilt tops and thank you, Jo, for the opportunity to finish and donate these quilts in my community. I look forward to quilting and giving more quilts soon!
Awesome work Barbara. I love the finished quilts. I am sure these will be loved by the recipients. I can totally see residents at the nursing home loving these!! I’m hoping a former farmer can get the barn quilt. I love it.
