Community Quilts from Karen and Friends

I was gone on Saturday and came home to a bunch of emails.  Many of them are of finished Community Quilts.  YAHOO!!

These are from Karen.  She writes:

This is the last of the bunch ready for their debut.    I have two more ready to be photographed, two more to bind and photograph, and two more to quilt from the Cresco Quilters.

This one also pieced by the Cresco Quilters.  I call these Big Jolly Bars, because Fat Quarter Shop has a 5X10 pre-cut called Jolly Bars.  I know these aren’t but neither are they squares.

This one measures 40X46, quilting allover meander.  Backing and binding from my stash and Vivian W. put the binding on.  A real “it takes a village” or at least a lot of different hands.”

Here is more info about the other quilts Karen sent pictures of…
The next pictures I sending are all tops from the Cresco, Iowa ladies.  The quilts that lean toward kids will go to the local EMS to be given out by EMTs on their ambulances.  The others will be donated to the local shelter.

 First up, Orphan blocks quilted with an all-over meander measuring 40X46.  I just love it when everything seems to come together from orphan blocks. 

Binding and backing came from my stash.

The next is a really neat variation on a Log Cabin.  Nice colors.

40X45 quilted with an all-over meander.  Binding and backing came from my stash.

Thank you Cresco quilters and you Jo for coordinating all the pieces (much like building a quilt) so these quilts end up where they are most needed.”

WOW..what a treat to see three finished quilts in a day.  I’m so happy that Karen and her friends are tackling the quilts that have been sent their way.  I love seeing good deeds happening all around.
