Elizabeth just contacted me with quilts to share…and happily was ready for another shipment of quilt tops. I sent her a big bunch that should have her busy for a while.
“Here are four finishes. I believe the tops were all made by the Cresco ladies. I found some fabric that echoed the pattern on the first one (boxes) so I added borders. The small boxes are mostly of beach things snd so I think this quilt should be called Margaritaville. It warms me just to look at it.
The second quilt is a striped beauty that I quilted using a meander. I just love how the quilt crinkles when it’s washed.
For the third quilt… I used a stencil that I recently purchased and used thread to match the dark rectangles. I had some fabric in my stash the back of which was a perfect match to the dark rectangles so I used it for the binding.
The last quilt included a border that came from a sheet I sent to the Cresco ladies! You can’t tell from the photo, but I quilted all the letters of the alphabet around the outer border. They fit nicely.
All the quilts have backings from my stash, which I am delighted to use up as it is overflowing. They will be donated to a local organization, Small Things Matter, that was started as a charity by a high school student as a school project. When she went away to college her family took it over and it has grown exponentially during the pandemic.”
Awesome. This sounds like a great cause worthy of support. I’m so happy that Elizabeth took the tops from the Cresco Ladies and finished them up. May users of the Small Things Matter organization be blessed with these quilts.
