Today I have a couple of quilts for you from a couple of finishers.
I got a message the other day from a friend of a friend named Laurie. I don’t know her but she heard about me from her friend. She knew of a family in need and a benefit was being organized to help them out. She was wondering if I might have a quilt top that she could finish for the benefit. Well…I did. I ended up sending her several quilt tops and told her to finish them as needed for area benefits or those in need.
A short time later I got a message back and she already had one finished.
This one is so cute. It’s a fussy cut. eye spy quilt. Each of the blocks in the quilt has a different fussy cut novelty print. You might be able to see a pretzel along the edge. It was such a great idea for a kids’ quilt top.
Laurie did some custom quilting in spaces along the edge. Check it out…
What a special touch.
“This seek and find quilt is headed to a 7 yr old with leukemia. I sent mittens, a table runner a child’s car seat cape, and a nice quilt for the silent auction.”
Sadly, I don’t remember who donated this top. If it was you, please leave a comment in the comment section. We’d love to recognize your wonderful work and donation!
I have another community quilt from a different Laurie…what a coincidence that two Laurie’s are finishers and both sent quilts that I can put together in one blog post.
“This is perfect for a wheelchair quilt to be donated to a local nursing home where they use them for Bingo activity prizes. I heard a story that when the new quilts are delivered there is a lot of interest and ooohing & aaahing that goes on. Quilts are very cherished by this generation so I try to put a little “extra” into each one.”
Here is Laurie’s finish…
She did some amazing machine quilting on this to give it the “extra” she was talking about.
I believe this was a top that came for the Cresco Ladies. I remember them having some larger orphan blocks and adding borders to them. What a great finish!!
Laurie said it finished at 45” x 45”.
How fun and what great work done by the two Lauries!! Thanks to everyone who had a part in making the tops and the finishing. Great work team!!
