Community Quilts from Ray

I received a big, wonderful box of goodies from Gloria B. in IL that I wanted to share with you. I will share the quilts first and then some very interesting UFOs.

The first quilt is a nine patch quilt set on pointe. The colors light and spring with a light pink/peach background. It will make a beautiful baby quilt or table topper. It measures 40 x 40.

The next quilt is a combination of nine patches and snowball blocks. The snowball blocks use a fabric with vintage scenes. She included a lot of the vintage yardage to use for the backing. This one measures 42 x 53.

The next one is a Dresden plate pattern with some very interesting Wizard of Oz fabrics. It measures 47 x 47.

The next quilt will be used for the Veterans Day event with all the red, white, and blue in it. It is a combination of pieced stars and patriotic strips. It measures 49 x 64.

Next is another beautiful red, white, and blue quilt for Veterans Day. The red and blue really pops against the white background. It measures 48 x 72.

Then there is this snuggly flannel quilt with a wide variety of fabrics in the blocks. What a fun kid’s themed quilt. It measures 58 x 71.

Next is the first of 3 shirtings quilts. This one is a combination of a one-piece block and a HST block. I love how she substituted a couple of diagonal rows of blocks to give it some more interest. It measures 56 x 64.

The next quilt utilizes some moose blocks that alternate with various HST shirting blocks. Then to add interest is a row of woodland-themed fabric. It measures 60 x 75.

The next quilt uses a variety of fabrics and block styles as well as a moose in one corner and a fox in another corner. Fun!! It measures 42 x 56.

The last quilt is a green and white star quilt. To me it is an Irish chain pattern set on pointe. There is additional fabric included with it also.

Now for the projects….

First is a group of flannel pieces. A variety of sizes and shapes that I believe can be put together to make another beautiful, fun quilt.

Then there is a bundle of various mauve-colored fabrics with three-star blocks already made. Beautiful fabrics and a great start with the stars. Just need to get creative to make a quilt.

Then there is a lot of Moosehead Lodge yardage. It is too nice to put on the back of the shirting quilts. I am thinking maybe making some panels out of it. Who knows???

The last bundle is a group of fabrics from the The Quilter’s Gift fabric line. These are really going to be fun to put together in a quilt or quilts.

Thanks, Gloria. I am really going to need to get busy with these great quilts.

WOW Gloria. What a wonderful bunch of quilts and goodies for Ray to work on. Your generosity is so appreciated.

I am guessing before long we will see that patriotic quilt finished. I know he’s going to be starting to work on patriotic quilt tops soon so they will be ready for the Veteran’s Day program his church puts on. If anyone has patriotic quilt tops they would like to donate, I’m sure Ray would welcome more donations. You can contact him at

  1. All the quilts are nice but I especially like the one with brown shirtings and the moose blocks. Love how she designed it and what was done with the brown shirtings. Brown shirtings are not easy to find in our area. A great cuddle/comfort quit.

  2. That is a good group of quilts with a wide variety of designs and color. I especially like the patriotic one and also the Irish chain/star quilt. It just has a nice relaxing vibe. Happy quilting, Ray!
