Ray is home and busy finishing quilts again. At the meetup Ray said he tries to do at least 6 quilts a week. When he’s not quilting charity quilts, he has customer quilts. What a busy guy. He’s not letting “retirement” slow him down!
“I got the other quilt top from Shep M in TX finished today. Every time I look at this quilt, I am awed at all of the blocks that went into this top. None of it is strip pieced that I can see.
Block by block by block by block……. WOW!! What a beautiful scrap quilt it is!!
I decided to use the kindling motif to add some movement to the quilt especially since the quilt is so large.
The backing is from a bundle you sent to me a couple of years ago that I have been hanging onto for just the right quilt.
I used a variegated red, white, and blue thread just for a bit more excitement. My thanks to you and Shep for another special quilt for a worthy veteran.
I just wanted to get one last quilt longarmed before I quilt for a few days and grabbed this cute one from Patty K in FL.
Patty is a prolific quilter and keeps several of us finishers busy. This one has some really cute dogs and cats. Love the batik fabrics she used for sashing and binding.
This one is off to the Sew and Sew group to bind and get to Quilts for Kids.
My thanks to you and Patty for your continued support.
I finally got the binding on this star studded quilt from Carole H. in MD.
Carole created the center medallion/panel and then added borders. The star border really sets this quilt off. Beautiful!!
I used the stipple motif with an off-white thread so those stars could shine and catch the eye of a worthy veteran.
Carole supplied the backing and the star binding.
My thanks to you and Carole for the support to finish this quilt.“
All of these turned out just awesome. What a great bunch of quilts. I always smile when I see how much good is done with these…from the gals putting together the tops, to Ray, and then imagining where they are heading out to. WONDERFUL!! You guys are the good in the world!!
