New charity quilts are in to take a look at….These were bound by Lori.
“Here are pictures of the quilts that you sent me to bind. This first 30’s quilt is lovely, Evie was the quilt top maker.” The backing was donated by Martha in Wister, OK.
This was such a fun quilt to work on. The piecing was wonderful. Evie does wonderful work.
Here’s a picture of the quilt when I just had it off the frame. It’s a simple design yet very nice. Wonderful for scraps!!
Here’s the second quilt….I loved working on this one as well.
Lori writes, “The second “Pinwheel” quilt top was made by Diane Vaclavick of Sweeny, Tx., also lovely.” I totally agree. This is a great quilt. The scraps for this were carefully selected. All of the colors are pinks, purples, greens and blues. Most are a small floral print. The scraps come together and make a great cohesive look by limiting the colors that are included.
The backing on this was a nice 100% cotton purple sheet. I thought is was a great choice. The thread on the back was variegated. I think variegated thread on a plain colored back jazzes it up a bit.
Lori writes, “Thank you Jo, Evie and Diane for providing me with the opportunity to donate these quilts to residents of “ShareHouse” in Fargo, ND. The mission of ShareHouse is to provide compassionate and innovative chemical dependency treatment and recovery services to those in need and to prevent abuse through education.”
Wasn’t that great eye candy?? Thanks so much ladies!!
