Community Quilts from Ray

I’m off getting tests done today for my 6-month cancer check-up. I didn’t want to leave you without a blog post so I am squeezing this one in and giving you an extra community quilt post. I’ll be back with my regular posts tomorrow.

I have quilts from Ray to share with you. I’m writing and publishing posts as quickly as I can but I still can’t seem to get them all out. These quilts from Ray came in before our meet-up a week or so ago.

Yup, I finished another patriotic quilt today. This one is from Sherrill P. in TX. She did a wonderful; job piecing those flags.

They are all in beautiful formation. I used the stipple motif in a bone-colored thread to minimize the effect of the quilting.

Sherrill supplied the awesome patriotic backing and I had some leftovers to use for the binding.

Waste not, want not as my Mother would always say. My thanks to you and Sherrill for another special patriotic quilt for the veterans’ dinner in November.

This is the first of two quilt tops that Shep M. in VA sent to me for the veteran’s dinner recognition.

It is a most interesting nine-patch quilt. The center blocks are all the same and all the surrounding eight blocks are the same fabric. Lots of blues and stars in this top.

I used the star meander and red thread for the quilting to add some more red to the mix.

The backing and binding are from the Arline H stash.

It’s a great quilt that will be appreciated by a vet. My thanks to you, Shep, and Arline for your support on this project.

Now weren’t those fun? I so admire Ray. So many of us would put this off and say “I don’t need these until November, what’s the hurry?” No, not Ray. He jumps in and works on them immediately. WOW. I admire that.

Thanks so much to everyone who has sent tops and goodies Ray’s way. It is so appreciated.
