Robin from CA sent photos of three of the quilts she recently finished.
“Adelle in Utah sent three quilt tops to me to finish. Along with the tops, she also provided the backing and binding fabric, which was greatly appreciated. They were all beautifully pieced. They all measured around 60 x 60 or a bit larger. That is a good size for a lap quilt for an adult so I will be donating these to a local assisted living to be used in their activity / TV room.
Thanks to Adelle for sending the tops. I’m sure they will be greatly appreciated by the residents at the assisted living facility.”
Jo writing now…
First up is a nine patch with alternating square…all scrappy a pretty.
I can’t tell from the photos is the backing fabric maps?? Tell me if you thing I’m right.
The green binding fabric was a great choice.
Next up is…a sheep quilt…I know you’re thinking WHAT? I don’t see sheep. Initially, I didn’t either.
Look closely the picture is upside down. I tried to turn the photo that Robin sent but once I turned it, that looked silly so I’m asking you to use your imagination and imagine it turned. The black squares are the sheep’s feet and what looks like top hats is really the sheep’s head. The pink one is a pink sheep…all fancy in pink.
That looks like some intense piecing on the seep as it’s made of all squares not larger strips.
This one is my favorite of the three. I love the rich colors. I love stars so of course I really like this one.
That was a great background and binding choice too. I love it!!
Great work Robin and thanks so much Adelle for the wonderful donation. You two make a great team!! It’s wonderful that these quilts will comfort the people at this assisted living home.

These are very beautiful quilts! Thanks to all who contributed to creating these beauties.
Anyone have a pattern name for that last quilt?
The pattern is snowflakes lap quilt by Kim Diehl.
Thanks, Adele. Your quilts are beautiful! I think the pattern is Starflakes, from Kim’s book “Simple Sampler”.
Very beautiful and great job. I’m sure the persons these are gifted to will be absolutely grateful.
Nice finishes Robin ,and beautiful patterns and piecing Adelle! Thanks to each of you.
Just beautiful. Wonderful quilting and piecing.
I see an impressionist type of map on that backing.
I see the sheep.
I love diagonal chains.
They are all wonderful quilts!! Hugs,
Wonderful quilts. I make quilts like the first one as leaders-enders for charity quilts, mainly baby size, using either 4 patches or 9 patches. A local guild finishes them up and gives them to local hospitals. I’ve seen the sheep pattern but didn’t realize it was all squares. Wow, lots of piecing. I just bought a Corey Yoder pattern with sheep. I need to go see how it is constructed now. I like the idea of a blue or pink sheep for baby quilts. Great job!
Adelle, these are really nice quilts. Such variety. I especially love the last one but I may have to try making the sheep. Robin, great job on the quilting/finishing of these quilts.
Wonderful job ladies, the quilts are gorgeous.
Great job Robin and Adele, thank you!
It does look like maps on the backing but my eyes are not very good right now.
