Charity Quilts: Ronda and Friends

Ronda has been busy again.  Ronda is #2 on our listing of people who will happily take your quilt donations.  (Find the list here)  Feel free to contact anyone on the list if you have items that you would like to move on out of your sewing room.

This first top came from Debbie S. in Holland, NY.   This is the second one I’ve quilted for Debbie and she does a nice job of piecing with nice flat seams.  She even stitches about 1/8″ around the completed top to help prevent stretching during quilting.  The backing comes from Gloria S. in Lomita, CA.  The binding is from my stash.”

That is a fun top.  It took me to look at if for a bit to see that it was actually blocks…I love studying the design of quilts and how they are put together.

“This next quilt was sent from Jill K. in Boerne, TX.  She had made all the blocks and sewn them together into rows.  She sent me the pattern along with the fabric for the horizontal sashing so all I had to do was add the sashing and sew the rows together, then quilt and bind it.”

  “The backing and binding came from my stash.”

I don’t have much in the way of large pieces to use for backing, so I couldn’t believe it when I was looking for something to use with this top, that I had the exact same pink color in a piece big enough to back this quilt.  Both of these quilts will go to the Ronald McDonald House.”

 It’s always so amazing to me when the charity quilters send me pictures of the projects that they were working on.  Look how many came together to do good.
Debbie, Gloria, Jill and Ronda.  People who don’t really “know” each other.  I will say it now and forever, writing the charity quilt posts are always my favorite.  It’s the good news I like to hear each week.  THANKS ladies!!
