Community Quilts from Karen

Karen has been on a roll with finishing quilts…in fact, all of the volunteer longarmers have been.  That’s why I’m adding in a few extra community quilt posts in an effort to try to catch up.

Karen writes:
First of all, guess I should tell you that all quilts will be donated to Stability First here in Martinsville, IN.  There is a family shelter and a women’s shelter that are part of this program.”

Grace donated an O’s quilt top (46X52) which on closer inspection the O’s were Halloween fabrics.”

“Quilted with all over hand guided quilting with ghosts on the bottom.  Backing (solid white kona so didn’t take a picture) and binding from my stash.”


Deb from Owatonna MN donated… a bag of pieced blocks which ended up being two different color themes and sizes.  I added solid fabric blocks to the neutrals to end up with a quilt 40×50.

“Backing for both of these quilts was 108″ wide less than $5 a yard (really good sale).  Binding from my stash.”

“The second one was a total of 12 pastel blocks and instead of a quilt approximately 36X48, I set her blocks on point, added solid white blocks between rows and around the outside.”

“Used the same backing and the binding came from my stash.  Quilting on both is panto Hearts in Bloom (one of my favorites).

That only leaves me with a very small window (30X37) quilt top from Jeanne in Colorado.  Am thinking of doing either a fussy quilt for the local memory care home OR a wheelchair quilt for one of the local nursing homes.  Will send pictures when it and the tumbler blocks are completed.”

WOW…I just love seeing all of these.  A big shout out to those of you who donated.  If anyone is has tops that you are willing to pass on for charity, feel free to contact Karen.  Here is her email.  You are also welcome to contact me if you have questions about our charity group…

Thanks so much to all who made these happen.  What a blessing you are.
