Community Quilts from Cathy

I’m trying to fix a few of the blog posts that were lost when I was having blog issues. This one went through but pictures were missing. I hate for your all to miss Cathy’s work. So here the post is for a second time.

I am happy to say I have quilts from Cathy to share with you today. She is a busy supporter of Quilts for Kids.

Hi Jo! I’ve got a batch of four quilt finishes to share with you today.

In the last batch of tops you sent me were two religious-themed quilt tops. I knew that Quilts for Kids (at least our local Salt Lake 
Chapter) doesn’t take quilts with religious, holiday or patriotic themes, so I passed the tops on to a friend (Lory) who belongs to a 
local church. Lory has a longarm machine, and not only was she able to layer and quilt the tops, but she was able to use them in her church’s 
fundraising drive to earn money for their youth program. Not only that, but she sent me photos of the finished quilts so I could share 
them with you and your readers.

Here are these two little quilts, each of which is approximately 38×38”.

Yay!  Don’t you just love happy endings?

These next two quilt tops were sent to me by

These next two quilt tops were sent to me by McGill U in South Carolina. Every quilt top she sends is always drop-dead gorgeous! 
First up is this cute quilt using Tula Pink Scraps. I love the vibrant colors, and I know some child will too.

The backing was a dark polka-dot grunge fabric that McGill included. I think it turned out fabulously!

The second quilt top from McGill was this adorable scrappy plus quilt. What a happy quilt, meticulously pieced as always! Thank you McGill! I 
backed it with some Tula and Kaffe blocks and yardage from my stash. I think they all play well together. These last two quilts were quilted 
by me on my new domestic Bernina 570 machine (I literally wore my last one out with 19 million stitches). They are going to Quilts for Kids.

I just love all of these. I’m so excited that the religious tops could be used by another group. Thanks for being resourceful Cathy. I also want to give a big shout-out to McGill and everyone who is sending things directly to finishers. I so appreciate all the postage and time that has been saving me. I also love to see you all making connections with each other. MANY THANKS!!

And I’m already pin-basting the next set of four tops. Gotta get as many quilts done as possible before spring gardening cuts into my sewing time, LOL.

  1. Wowee! All of those are fantastic & I know they’ll be treasured by the lucky folks who get them! Thanks for doing this, Jo & creators!

  2. Your quilts are beautiful and thank you for your time and giving. The Quilts for Kids is a great charity and I’m sure the religious gifts will be appreciated too. Do you want any more tops? I am in need of a finisher, as I can only make the tops. Please let me know. Patty K at
