Community Quilts from Ray

Ray has more goodies to share. I think I get caught up on emails from him and just like that, there are more incoming emails.

I received a wonderful package in today’s mail from Donna F. in NY. There were a couple of cute panels in the package as well as 2 tops.

The first top is a darling baby quilt top in some really nice, soft colors. She included some extra fabric that I may use for borders and/or binding. It measures 36 x 37.

The other top is a wonderful patriotic top that started as a panel and grew. OMG!! It will be great for a vet at the Veterans’ dinner. It measures 52 x 74.

Thank you Donna for the wonderful bag of goodness,

Laura sent me this beautiful quilt that is from a mystery quilt-along. The pattern is called Mosaic Mystery.

She even used the specified colors for the top. Laura did not include the borders and I did not have any of the right color.

I decided to go with the star meander motif as there is so much white space in the top.

The top is a more modern look but I did not have any backing yardage that completed the top and was modern.

Therefore I used a more vintage back that had orange flowers in it from Deb and Pat.

I used white thread on the top and light pink on the back to blend. Sounds odd but I think it is acceptable. My thanks to you, Laura, Deb, and Pat for another quilt to donate.

This quilt is for all of you Bonnie Hunter fanatics. Arline H. made this beautiful quilt top and gave it to me to finish and donate.


The pattern is Bonnie’s On Ringo Lake pattern. It is a gorgeous quilt with lots of smaller pieces in orange and teal. Yes, it is a very bold quilt.

Since the pattern refers to a lake, I used the circle meander motif with teal blue thread to replicate water. I used an orange thread on the back to blend in with the orange backing that Arline provided.


She also included the orange and teal binding.


My thanks to you and Arline for your never-ending support of community quilts.



Two wonderfully finished top…and more tops in line to be finished. That’s good news all around. Thanks so much to Ray for he great finishing and thanks to those that helped make it happen!!
