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!!
