Community Quilts from Cathy K

Cathy is a newer quilter to our group.  I’m so happy to have her!!  I have quilt tops here that need be sent out so I’m always looking for new finishers.  I’m so thankful Cathy volunteered.  If you’re interested in volunteering please send me an email at

Here are the next three finishes from the batch of tops you sent me. 
These were really fun!

The first quilt is a Batman-themed quilt. This, like the others, was 
pieced by the talented Cresco ladies.

The pictures don’t do justice to the lovely tan fabric used as sashing. It has flecks of blue and 
metallic gold in it.

Anyway, it was quilted simply, as is my style since I work on my little domestic Bernina machine. For the backing I chose this “brick wall” fabric, and can’t you just imagine the Bat Sign shining on it?!? LOL (maybe I have an overactive imagination!)

The second quilt is… ski-themed, and here in Utah where our state motto is The Greatest Snow on Earth, this one is going to be very popular!

I love how the Cresco ladies brightened the color scheme by lifting up the purple and Hunter green with a rainbow stripe border. So clever!

I backed it with a mottled purple fabric and quilted it in a stipple pattern. Another winner!

The third and final quilt for this round is what I’m calling the farm quilt.

The ladies used their scraps cleverly on this one, mixing green, tan, barn red and brown. What kid wouldn’t love it? The backing is a barn red print from my stash (as are all the backs), and I think the fold-over binding frames the quilt nicely.

As the labels indicate, these are all going to the Salt Lake Chapter of Quilts for Kids. Thanks to you, Jo, and the Cresco ladies for helping us help the kids. Now, I can’t wait to start on the next batch!

WOW…Great work Cresco Ladies and great work Cathy!!  These will all make perfect quilts for the Quilts for Kids program.  How fun to see these quilts come to life.  I can’t help but imagine them snuggled around a child in need.

    Cathy, your choice of backings/bindings really enhance these quilt tops. Thanks to the Cresco ladies for the tops, Jo for sending and you of course for more wonderful finishes and making a few kids very happy.

  3. What wonderful quilts. so much happiness in them and they are sure to bring a smile to a childs face. Great work to everyone involved in making all these quilts come to life!!!

  4. I am not a quilter. I am constantly amazed by the clever combinations of colors and subject matter on the fabrics. These quilts are works of art. They are put together with love. The team work is very special. What a “God thing”. Since I can’t help with the quilting, I help in the way I can. I pray for the person who will receive the quilt. God knows who will receive it! And I thank God for everyone who helped along the way, volunteering to transport, give supplies, sew, pray, promote, encourage. Your creations are a real blessing to others.
