Community Quilts

Ronda is busy juggling grandkids and summer but is still finding time to work on charity quilts.  Oh I admire her!!

The first quilt was made from a top sent to me from Karen S. in Chino, CA.”

She also sent the red binding.  The backing came to me from you, Jo, but originally from Carla.  The quilt finished at 58 X 69 and was donated to the CSADV.”

Next up is another top sent from Karen S. in Chino, CA.  I love this pattern!  And the colors are beautiful!

“Karen pieced the backing and also included the binding.  It finishes at 73 X 90, so would work well on a single bed.”

I will save this for one of my neighbor’s fundraisers as she asked me just the other day if I had any quilts to donate to raise money for improvements/repairs on the building where she volunteers teaching English to non-English speaking adults.”

And the third quilt was a top sent to me from Diane in WA….”
“She included this note:  ​I made this quilt when Jo & Kelli put out their “Oink~a~Doodle Moo” quilts.  This is quilt #2 made a little bigger.  I always liked it, but never had anyone to finish and give it to

“​Well, it certainly is a cute quilt and will be donated to the Ronald McDonald House.  The back and binding are from fabric you sent to me, Jo.

This quilt is 49 X 72.”

Oh my….these are so awesome.  The last one has me remembering how much I like striped fabric for bindings.  I’d happily love any of these in my home.  They turned out great!

Thanks to all the people who donated and worked to make these quilts happen.  It’s wonderful for people to be helping people.  I think community quilts and donations mean more to me than even.  We were touched by so many people who sent cards and notes while Kramer was battling cancer.  Any caring jester meant so much to us.  I know these quilts will be appreciated by people going through tough situations and the caring that went into these quilts will be poured out onto them.  Thanks everyone!!

  1. Wow all three of those quilts are awesome. I’m sure whoever gets them will appreciate and love them.

    Great job ladies.

    Love, hugs and prayers coming your way.

  2. They are all wonderful but I love the dinosaur one, its adorable. Thank you for sharing to each of you who touched these beautiful quilts and made it happen.

    Do you know what pattern was used on the first quilt pictured? I just can’t figure out what a single block would look like. With that red zig zag it has me stumped. Very nice quilt.

  4. I honestly don’t read your blog for the quilting posts but Ronda certainly deserves a big shout out for all her great work! Volunteers are the backbone of most communities and her endeavors are probably one of the more anonymous forms of volunteering. So, Yay Ronda! Keep up the great work!

  5. To all who had a part in these quilts, they are beautiful and who ever gets them will be so thankful. Yes what is CSADV. I DON’T KNOW ABBREVIATIONS VERY WELL.

  6. To those who asked ~ CSADV stands for Council on Sexual Assualt and Domestic Violence. They really appreciate the quilts when I deliver them as sometimes the women and children have come to them with nothing but what they are wearing.

  7. Thanks to Ronda and all those involved with these quilts for others. And thanks to Jo for listing where we can send material and/or UFO’s for others to finish and pass on to others.

  8. Connie Heffner: I think it looks like a rail fence, with four rails, with a cream on one end and the bright burgundy on the other end. It’s really striking, isn’t it? I think it is a pattern that would get a great impact without too much intricate piecing, which is especially nice. But if I’ve misintrepreted the pattern I hope someone will correct me.

  9. Yes, Beth, it is a rail fence. So, Connie, to make it just sew 4 strips together ~ whatever width and length you choose ~ with the color placement exactly the same in each block, if you want it to look like this quilt. Then just turn each block in the direction it needs to be to form this pattern. Easy peasy!
