Community Quilts from Laurie

I have a treat for you today.  I have quilts that were finished by Laurie.  She always puts her heart into the quilts she finishes and adds her wonderful custom quilting.  This batch is not different.

Check out this simple one-patch quilt…but check out the extra Laurie does to it to make it shine.

A solid gray was used for the backing…You can see on that backing the quilting design.

Isn’t it pretty??

Laurie was busy and got another quilt done too…

Again Laurie did some awesome work to really make the machine quilting shine.  I just love the floral feather design she used.

One of the backing fabrics was used for the binding too.

I have a treat for you…two more quilts from Laurie.

I believe these tops came from the Cresco ladies.  Look how Laurie treated each of the blocks individually.

From cross-hatch work…

…to headbands in the lower block… feathers and even squares.

Doesn’t it look great together??

Laurie found a great gingham of the backing.

Laurie’s pet bunny made an appearance on the quilt…So cute.

Next up is a kitty quilt.  See all the kitties in the window panes.  So cute!

Laurie did some great custom quilting on this too.  I love the loops.

The big polka dot backing looks great with the cat print.  It has the same tones in the background.

Once again, Laurie took basic quilts and really made them shine with her amazing machine quilting.  THANKS, Laurie, and thanks to the Cresco ladies who made these tops. Anyone who gets them is sure to love them.  If anyone wants to help Laurie out with quilt backings, Laurie lives in Washington State and finishes many of these quilts for her local fire and EMS to distribute to people in need.  You can contact Laurie at this email address

    Laurie, these finishes are just exquisite for each of these quilts! You gave each a special touch! Thanks to the ladies Cresco ladies and any others who helped in a special way. I hope you receive many quilt backings for future finishes!!

    I long ago learned to never turn my nose up at any quilt saying it’s to plain or fancy. The work and planning that goes into the most simple quilt. Makes some who sew other things say “No no no. Not for me” Me I’ve gone from plains to whatever strikes my fancy. If it doesn’t work right away I put to one side and try again after getting more experience. These are such lovely quilts to enjoy.
