Charity Quilt Finish

I am so excited.  I am starting to get in photos of finished quilts from the last set of charity quilts that got sent out.

Lori from ND writes:

“Hi Jo,
Here are pictures of the donation quilt that you sent to me.  It is now bound, don’t you just love it?   It is a great quilt.  The quilt top was made and donated by Dori, and she requested it be donated to ShareHouse in Fargo, ND.  For over 40 years ShareHouse has served adults and the families of those, challenged by alcoholism, substance abuse and/or mental health disorders.  Their focus is to help clients begin and continue their lives in recovery. I have called ShareHouse and will deliver the quilt before Christmas.

Thank you Jo for putting this quilt together, providing back, batting and  binding fabric.  And for quilting it!  Thank you, thank you, thank you!!  I feel honored to be able to be a part of this project and to be able to donate this great quilt to ShareHouse.”

Here is a link to ShareHouse if you’re interested in learning more about it.

I think it’s so neat that Dori sent this quilt top with the hope that someone at ShareHouse might benefit from it and that Lori helped to make it happen.


Isn’t it a wonderful quilt?

I have loved this quilt.  Here’s some pictures from when I was working one it.


Here’s another shot, closer up though…

Doesn’t this quilt totally tempt you do keep a box of strings by your machine and feed them in as leaders and enders?  It does me.

Dori did such an amazing job on this.

I hope this quilt provides comfort to it’s new owner.  I hope that they can find all the things in life that they need to make a clean break from their past and can look ahead to a shining future.

Thanks so much Dori and Lori…You two made an awesome team!

  1. Wow! the colors just pop against black sashing and gray cross bars in the blocks. What a great idea to have strings beside the machine to work on as a leader or ender.

  2. Love it and I think a string quilt needs to be on my list this year. What a wonderful place to send it and it has been loving touched and created by so many who wish to share with others.

  3. What great colors in this quilt. Love the squiggly gray fabric separating the blocks.
    I think the quilting of straight lines was a great match to this pattern. Good work all around!

  4. I have found I can’t L&E strings-they are too addictive. I just keep making string blocks, I forget about the “real” project. That quilt is fabulous and I will have to keep it on the list of want to makes, . . .I am going to have to live to be 199 to make everything that I want to make. :)

  5. Dori, What a beautiful quilt! You got me at the scrappiness of this beauty. Wonderful work.
    Jo, Thanks for quilting it. You are a Speed Quilting Wonder!
    Lori, Thank you for doing the binding this quilt.

    All three of you are a great team to get these bits of fabric turned into a beautiful quilt for someone at ShareHouse. Bravo!
