Community Quilts from Kathleen

Before I get to today’s post…
Jazz sent me a note saying, “I could use *regular sewing machine thread* (all colors, including whites and neutrals) and, of course, any stamped cross stitch squares or kits that I can incorporate into quilts.”

Is anyone cleaning out their thread and have some spare? Jazz could use some.  Here is her email address:  jazzpaz@gmail.com

If you do, just drop her a note and she will share her mailing address with you.  THANKS!!

Now to today’s post:

Today I have a couple of quilts to share with you that were finished by Kathleen.  I sent a bag of quilt tops to Kathleen at the beginning of November and she is working her way through the tops.

The first is this super cute barn quilt.  I just love it.  For me, what’s not to love…red, my favorite color…star blocks right at the top of the list too…and farm-themed.  This is a great quilt.

Here is the next finish…a scrappy beauty…Everything in this seems to be floral-themed.


This one is a fun mix of red, white, gray, and black.  I just adore the little stripped binding.  SO CUTE!!  I think it does a great job o cheering up the quilt.


Isn’t this one so fun to look at?  I can’t help but wonder if it’s a layer cake quilt. The blocks look like they could be 10″ and the sashing looks like it could have been made from 10″ squares cut in half.  Hmm.  Cute quick quilt.

Kathleen did such an awesome job putting these together.  Sadly, I’m not sure who made all of the quilt tops.  All I know is that they look great!

    Absolutley LOVE the barn quilt!!! I would love to have the pattern for it. I will save a copy of the pic and just may have to draw it out to make. Us farm boys got to have our barns, tractors and trucks. LOL!!!

    Great job on the quilting.

    I was just thinking today, we should send thread to the quilters. I will check to see what I might have for Jazz.

    The barn quilt is precious! They all are. I can see you incorporating that barn pattern into a quilt. Today I’m working on Rhododendron Trail. Jack comes out quite a bit but I’m nearly finished with the second half of it and then sew them together.

    Sounds like a lot of us would like to have the pattern name for the barn quilt. Is it possible to ask? I would even like to make one block. In my quilt room I have a spot I hang up a small quilt, and change out monthly. Would love to add this to my collection.
