Ray has been filling my email inbox. He’s so patient with me and doesn’t mind if I don’t get to his emails right away. I appreciate that so much!! Ray is one of those guys I only ever have good things to say about!!
I wanted to share a community quilt I actually finished today. The commission quilts have been coming in at a steady pace and have not had a chance to sneak a community quilt into the schedule. At church, there is an Angel Tree that is put up every year with items that various families could use and appreciate to add a little something extra during the holiday season. Lester beat me to the tree and found a tag that listed a blanket (quilt) for a newborn boy. Lester checked if I had anything that would work. I remembered some panels that Andrea Y. in NY had sent me and found this one. Perfect panel.
While I was looking for some backing, some red fabric slid out. Loved the fabric and there was just enough for a border and binding.
Yeah!! Love the larger size for him to grow into. I used the stipple motif and white thread to complete the project.
My thanks to you and Andrea for a very special quilt for a special boy for Christmas.
I had a gap in commission quilts and grabbed a top off the shelf to longarm. Boy, does it feel good to do a community quilt for a change.
This top is from Joann C in CA. I normally am not a churn dash fan but I love this one. Joann used some really great fabrics and made the blocks bigger, 12 inch. Really made a difference for me. They are so much more modern.
The backing is from Holly M. in IN and goes so well with the top.
I decided on the daisy motif to compliment all the daisy fabric in the top.
My thanks to you, Joann and Holly for the support to finish this beautiful top.
I received a package in the mail today from Donna F. in NY. I am calling it a Christmas present as there were 2 beautiful quilt tops inside.
The first top is a red, white and blue top that will be great for the Veterans dinner in November. I love all the wonderful colors in the top. I have never seen this pattern before. It makes great use of the fabrics. It measures 50 x 75.
The other top is made from a panel. The colors are very subtle and calming. It will make a great lap quilt. It is 34 x 40.
Thank you Donna.
Wow…finished quilts and some to-be-finished quilts. What a great selection. Thanks so much to everyone who has sent goodies to Ray. He makes such good use of everything!! Thanks Ray.
