Mail Call from Ray

Ray has been getting packages right and left. Today’s post is a peek at all the things that have been sent his way.

“The mail has been coming in and I am determined to get it caught up before it gets totally out of control. I am not complaining. Just saying that some organization is needed and I am not one to stay organized, anymore.

Community Quilts from Ray

Ray spent much of February and March scrambling to get quilts finished for the Airing of Quilts which is a fundraiser for his church’s outreach program to help those in need.  So many great things are done with the money that is raised.

“I finished another quilt to include in the Airing of the Quilts.

The top is a panel that was included in some donated fabric, not sure who it came from, unfortunately. The selvedge says “GUARANTEED DUTCH JAVA PRINT”. A Google search leads me to believe it is a South Africa batik.

The fabric is as pretty on the back as it is on the front which would also make me believe it is a batik of some nature.

Regardless, it is…Read More »Community Quilts from Ray

I have fun quilts to share with you today.  All of them are from Ray.  One of the quilts is a wonderful splash of color and the other has a wonderful story.  Grab some coffee and read along…

Cheryl P. in CO. made this top and sent it to me to finish. I just got it put together.

She did an awesome job of piecing all the quarter log cabin blocks. It is so very scrappy and delightful.

I used the…Read More »Community Quilts from Ray
