Community Quilt from Lori

Lori sent me a write-up and pictures of her latest quilt top finish.

I still have a few quilt tops that need to be quilted, I haven’t forgotten about them. Here is one that I have had for quite a while.  This quilt top is made with beautiful browns and pinks.  This one is from Gloria.  Sorry, it has taken me so long Gloria.

This pink and brown quilt top was nearly square, so I added top and bottom borders to get a little more length.  There was a piece of backing that was also included, but since I added borders, I needed to add a little bit more fabric to the backing. The added fabric to the backing was something that I had in my stash and it coordinated nicely.

It is so fun to see these fabric combinations together.  I love this peachy coral color together with the browns.

Enjoy even more pictures of the quilt…

Thank you Gloria and Jo for giving me this opportunity to donate.”

Wow.  That sure was pretty.   Adding the top and bottom borders to make the quilt larger was a perfect idea!!  Great job Gloria and Lori!!

I have seen this pattern several different times.  In fact, I even made one myself long ago from shirts and gifted it to my nephew for his graduation.  I made mine using the free Bonnie Hunter pattern.

Lori donates most of her quilt finishes to The Sharehouse which helps people who are working through addiction.

    Hi Jo
    What is the name of the quilt pattern? I would love to have a go at making it, such a lovely design, and a beautiful quilt. I’d love to see the one you made too, with the shirts. Really enjoy reading your blogs.

    A gorgeous finish and the colors work so well together. The added borders make it a really nice size.
