Laurie sent in a nice bunch of quilts that she recently finished. I think they are all from the Cresco Ladies.
First up is what she’s calling the Orphan block Medallion. It finishes at 40” x 41 1/2”.
I think I remember this one as it passed through my hands. Laurie did a great job with it.
The Cresco Ladies love when people gift them orphan blocks or projects that were abandoned as the triangle blocks were.
What a great backing!!
Next up is a quilt Laurie called… Bunnies. It finished at 40 1/2” x 43”.
If you look close, all of the blocks are scrappy and all have bunnies in them. what a great way to coordinate fabrics.
Laurie did some great quilting on this one. I think one of the motifs is called a wishbone. I’ve not tried that before and Laurie’s great work is making me think I probably should.
Again, a great backing fabric!
Next up is a Floral quilt measuring 45” x 55”. I think it is one of the 3-yard quilts that the Cresco Ladies often make. It really is a great pattern for using up three one-yard cuts of coordinating fabrics.
I can’t see the motif used in the floral area but I can see it on the red fabric. I think using that dark thread color was perfect. It makes the dark florals look really great with the red.
I don’t remember if the Cresco Ladies supplied the backing fabric or if it was a major coincidence that Laurie had some of the same print.
It turned out really nice.
The last quilt of the day is a Panel Christmas Jelly Roll Race quilt that measures 38” x 47”.
It looks like the center was a panel and then someone made a jelly roll race quilt. It looks like the pieces of it were cut and used as borders. So creative.
Laurie had the perfect backing and what a great idea to use a scrappy border for the binding.
Laurie did a wonderful job of getting these done. Laurie gifts quilts to the local EMS services and quilts are given to people who get a ride in the ambulance. What a perfect way to wrap people who are injured in a blanket of love. Thanks to the Cresco Ladies and to Laurie for their great work.
