Community Quilts from Ronda

I told you I have lots of community quilts come in and it is the truth!!  I think the cold weather has the volunteer longarmers indoors and working their magic!

Ronda writes:

I have two more quilts that have been finished and donated.  Linda in Tucson, Arizona sent me six 64-patch blocks. 

I went thru my scraps and found fabrics that looked similar to what she had used in her blocks and made six more 64-patch blocks. 

I put them all together using sashing fabric that you passed on to me.  The cornerstones, backing, and binding are all the same fabric ~ also, sent to me from you, Jo. 

The quilt finished up at 57 X 75 and was donated to Opportunities Unlimited.

The second quilt was…
one that I made using a pattern from my stash and fabric sent to me from Judy M. in Lynchburg, Virginia. 

The fabrics she sent look to be all from one fabric line, but I added a few extra pieces from my stash to keep from having too many blocks all the same.  The backing fabric came from Karen S. in Chino, California.  This quilt finished at 61 X 77 and was also donated to Opportunities Unlimited.

Thanks to all who sent goodies to Ronda so she could put these together.  We are so fortunate to have awesome people who donate and awesome people who bring the donations together and spin them into something beautiful.

    Ronda, Great job on the two quilts. I especially love the colorful 64-patch block quilt. It must of been fun to build on Linda’s 6 blocks.

    These are beautiful quilts, Rhonda! I also love the size, which makes them quite versatile.
