Community Quilts from Ronda

I have a treat for you today.  I have four quilts to share with you.  All were finished by Ronda.  She does wonderful work and was one of the first people to volunteer to help finish quilt tops.  I so appreciate her work.

The first top was sent to me from Cindy E. of Mansfield, Ohio.

This all batik beauty is a nice lap size at 64 X 80.  I believe she also sent the purplish batik backing, which I added a little blue to,  to make it bigger.  The blue I added and used for the binding is from Jeanne M. of Tucson, Arizona.

This quilt went to Opportunities Unlimited.

Barbara L of …

Decatur, Georgia sent the two large pink and white pinwheel blocks.  I added the pink and white checkerboard to the sides along with a couple of borders to make it 49″ square.  The dark blue fabric I used for the inner border, binding, and some of the backing came from Linda in Tucson, Arizona.  This quilt went to Ronald McDonald House
.”

The next one was a kit that was sent to me from Judy M. of Lynchburg, Virginia.


It was a fun quilt to make with the machine appliqued flowers.  It reminds me of a picnic quilt.  The green checked fabric I used for the back is from Sandra in Texas and the red floral part of the back is some that you sent me, Jo.

This quilt finished up at 60 X 63 and was donated to Opportunities Unlimited.

Diane S. of Rosemount Minnesota sent a kit that started with the Thimbleberries panel and came with everything needed to assemble it.  The backing I used I’m pretty sure came from you, Jo.  This quilt measures 42 X 52 and went to Ronald McDonald House.

 

Kathy M. of Westerly, Rhode Island sent the next beautiful top, which measures 72″ square.

The yellow with blue stars fabric I used for the back came from Ila M. of Des Plaines, Illinois. This also went to Opportunities Unlimited.

I always get a lot of questions as to what the pattern might be.  I believe the last quilt was the Bonnie Hunter mystery quilt, En Provence.  As for the other quilts, I don’t know…They are all wonderful and I’m sure will be loved.

    Hi
    I am in awe of the beautiful quilting and how there’s always a beautiful backing waiting to be used. They must bring a huge smile to those who receive from others who make the quits with so much love.

    The first one might be the original Turning Twenty or something very similar. All of them are wonderful.

      I was thinking the first quilt was Turning Ten… made with 10″ squares. Whatever the name, it is beautiful.

    Ronda, I’m wondering where is that flower quilt design from. I think I have seen Ray use it before also, and it is a good one.
