Finished quilt tops just keep pouring in. A year or more ago I remember anxiously hoping someone would send me pictures of a finished top to so I’d have a charity quilt to feature on Thursday mornings. Now I am getting so many in I never have to worry. In fact, I’ve even added more slots in the blog to feature them.
Today’s quilts were finished by Ray. He writes:
“Attached is a pic of a quilt that I just finished. Actually all I had to do was add the binding. It is a really nice quilt, well made and measures 44 x 55.”
A couple of weeks ago you posted that I needed help with stash to complete quilts. Beth in Destin, FL reached out to me and then sent me a BIG box of stuff including fabrics, a flimsy, a partially assembled top and this quilt that needed binding.”
“Doreen in Fredericksburg, IA also sent me a box of fabric. In it was the binding fabric I used, yellow with pink polka dots. Truly a community quilt.”
Thanks to Jo, Beth and Doreen for the contributions to completing this quilt.
On to quilt #2….
“Just finished this quilt top that was made by the Cresco ladies. When I first saw it, all I could think was fun, From the cats with the stars to the bright colored squares print to the big star border, it was just fun.”
It was 38 x 45 when I got it and I added a gold swirl border to make it 42 x 49. Just the right size for a deserving child. Since there were stars in the prints, I decided to add a few more stars with the quilt pattern.”
“Even though the backing does not match the print used on the front, it just continues to add to the quilt as a whole.”
“Thanks to the Cresco ladies for another fun. creative top and to Jo for sending it on to me.”
Thanks so all of you worked to make these happen. I say that I love writing these posts as I am reminded again and again that there are so many good people in the world silently doing the things and sadly to often they go unseen. I want people to see the good we’re doing with charity quilts!!
