I have another batch of quilts from Karen R. I just love getting the emails with finished quilts. It always brightens my day!

“All these quilts turned out so nice. Thanks goes out to whoever made them. I know they will be appreciated.”
Karen didn’t know but I believe it’s the Cresco Ladies who made these. I really liked the one above. It’s hard to see in the photo above but there is a boat embroidered in the center of the quilt and there is pirate-themed fabric all around it. So cute!!
What a great backing for it too.
The next quilt…turned out really nice as well. Can you see the bird that was fussy cut for the center of the top left block? It takes patience to do that. I rarely fussy cut anything.
Here is the backing…perfect. This is really a fun quilting motif.
Karen writing again:
“Does this quilt look familiar? I usually don’t buy quilt magazines but this one caught my eye not for this pattern but for another.
When I got home and saw your pattern I had to make it. I already had plenty of 2.5” squares and had just used the yellow for another project. It turned out so cute and was really fast to make. Another donation quilt out the door.
Hopefully, I’ll have the other quilts you sent finished soon. Thank you.”
For those of you who don’t recognize the quilt, this is our quilt, Fun and Games. Here is the original. This is my granddaughter Lilly’s baby quilt. I made it from leftover scraps and pieces from a blog reader. I just love getting someone else’s leftovers and making something from them.
Here is another picture from the magazine.
The pattern can be found in the June 2020 issue of American Patchwork and quilting. It really is a quick, and easy quilt to make. I had a lot of fun making it!!
Many thanks to Karen for finishing up the quilts I sent her way. Many thanks for sharing our quilt and the trip down memory lane…and a HUGE shout of to the Cresco Ladies for their continued work and dedication to making so many quilt tops that are shared all around the US.
