Community Quilts from Ronda and Friends

Yahoo!! More community quilts came in from Ronda!  I always love an email from Ronda.  I’ve yet to ever have any bad or concerning news from her or from any of my charity longarmers.  It’s all happy mail and who doesn’t love that?  Last week I sent out tops to several longarmers.  If you didn’t get some and want some, please let me know.  I had someone inquire and they sounded really excited but then didn’t get back to me.  I hope they do contact me again.  I’m a little worried my return email went to their spam folder.  Those spam folders can be a good and bad thing.

Two more quilts to share with you today.  The first one was completed from a top sent to me from Diane S. of Rosemount, Minnesota.

The top had yellow top and bottom borders on it already, but no extra yellow fabric for side borders, so I removed those two borders and added borders with red cherry fabric sent to me from Karen V. of St. George, Utah. I used that same red cherry fabric for the binding. The pink and red dress fabric that I used for the backing also came from Karen.
This little quilt finished up at 41″ square and will go the Ronald McDonald House.

The second quilt was…

made from blocks sent to me from Linda in Tucson, Arizona. She made 17 blocks all together, so I raided my stash and found fabrics that I thought looked similar to what she used and made three more blocks so I could set this in a setting of four blocks across and five blocks down. I added the borders from the leftover backing fabric used on another quilt.  The complimentary backing and binding both came from Diane S. of Rosemount, Minnesota.
This quilt ended up at 61 X 73 and will go to Opportunities Unlimited.

Thanks so much to Diane, Karen, and Linda for sharing their time and talents with me.

WOW…all fun quilts and great causes that will get these quilts.  It’s such a joy to me to write these posts and share them with you.

    I like Ray’s imagination the cherries on the 1st. Quilt’s binding was right on target the backing was interesting. The 2nd. Quilt was great all the way. You can tell Ray’s blocks from Diane’s way to go Ray.
    Thanks for sharing Jo. Enjoy reading your blogs so much.

    Ray has a great ways of finishing quilts.
    Jo, have you started up the Childcare? I am sure that is keeping you busy. I have my friend reading the posts looking for a mail call including her package. It is cute. I have reminded her you are busy with family and childcare. She understands and is getting hooked the daily posts. Have a good day.

    Ronda did such a nice job with these quilts. It’s such a challenge to make more blocks to finish a quilt. Way to go quilters!
