If you have Bonnie Hunter’s book String Fling, you are likely familiar with this beautiful quilt, Tulip Fields.
Can you believe that a blog reader sent this one to me to machine quilt and send on to donate to a charitable cause?
Well I know a blog reader, Lori from ND is always looking for twin sized quilts for Share House. Lori is a volunteer binder and does a great job with getting quilts finished and onto someone in need. Lori writes:
“Good Morning Jo, This is one of your donation quilts. Christine Y. made the quilt top. And you so generously let me bind and donate the Quilt to ShareHouse. Thank you both so much. Share House has a special place in my heart as one of my family members has used their services with success.
For over 40 years ShareHouse has served adults and the families of those challenged by alcoholism, substance abuse and/or mental health disorders. Their one focus is to help clients begin and continue their lives in recovery.

Oh my, when I saw this quilt my heart went pitter patter. Scrap quilts are my favorite! Yellow was the perfect sashing for this quilt with the red accent! . I know some resident at ShareHouse will treasure this gift. When I was taking the picture of this quilt, the wind came up at just the right time. Lori”
Yahoo! With the great help from Christine for donating the top and Lori’s binding skills another quilt went to someone who can benefit. I love these charity stories. It is always a bright point in my week when I can write one!! Thanks ladies!!
Christine and Lori and Jo, did wonderful work, on this beautiful quilt. A great feel good blog to start the day as we remember all the good that is going on in our world by quilters:)
Beautiful quilt ladies!!!! Someone is going to be thrilled to get it!!!!
Wonderful!! Moves my heart when so many hands are involved making a quilt, especially a charity quilt. Involved with a charity group in my area, Quilts From the Bluffs, and we also have many hands involved. So humbling how many are giving so generously!! Keep stitching!
Kudos to Christine for donating such a great quilt – and to Jo and Lori for finishing it off. Knowing how much work goes into a Bonnie Hunter quilt, I can’t imaging giving one up. Beautiful colors on this quilt.
What a gorgeous quilt! That will be a very lucky recipient.
I’ve made this Tulip Fields quilt, and it is a long-term project. I gave my king-size version to a friend to whom I was deeply indebted.
Christine Y. did a wonderful job! I know it was a work of heart. Thank you, Lori for binding the quilt and passing it on to Share House. It sounds like a great charity. Jo, thank you for bringing these two generous quilters together for a very worthwhile cause. This quilt will become a treasure for sure! All three of you ladies are inspiring. God bless you greatly.
