I have three quilts from Ray to share with you today. They are all nice quilts you are sure to enjoy.
“I finished this charming quilt from Barbara S. in FL.
A weak attempt at some quilting humor. The blend of the fabric colors is…
wonderful. If you look closely you can see that one of the blocks has faux cross stitching in it. I can see a lady with this quilt across her lap working on her cross-stitching.
I used the stipple motif with off-white thread for the quilting.
The backing is from Colleen M in MN. Ny thanks to you, Barbara and Colleen for your generosity.
I love all the various fabrics that went into the quilt and the great contrast between the neutrals and the darker prints. Just a guess on my part, I think she put this together one square at a time as nine patches and then put the nine patches together to make the top. That takes a lot of patience that I do not have but totally respect. I am more of a strip type of a piecer. I selected the stipple motif with bone-colored thread for the long arming.
I believe the backing came from the Deb and Pat stash.
My thanks to you, Maureen and Deb and Pat for your generosity. Another wonderful quilt in the growing pile for the upcoming Airing of the Quilts on March 18.
Barbara S. in FL. made this beautiful quilt and passed it along to me to finish.
Love the peach, green and blue combination of colors. I have seen this pattern with 2 fabrics but not with 3. It really dresses it up.
I used the daisy motif for the quilting.
Barbara supplied the pieced backing to coordinate with the top.
I happened to have some dark blue scraps laying around that went into the binding. My thanks to you and Barbara for giving me the pleasure of finishing this quilt.”
I told you it was a great bunch of quilts! Ray and I have been talking and have thought about auctioning a quilt or two off here on the blog in conjunction with the Airing of the Quilts that his group does. We’d love to know if anyone would be interested in that??? Please let us know in the comment section so we can plan it or ditch the idea.
Many thanks to the quilt top makers and to the backing donators and to Ray…I’d also like to do a big shout-out to all of you reading the blog and leave such nice comments that cheer us all on to make more community quilts.
