Community Quilts from Ronda

You were treated to some great quilts that Ronda finished on Thursday, happily, I have more quilts from Ronda to share with you today.

Ronda writes:

The first top was sent to me from Linda M. of Tucson, Arizona. 


She also sent the pretty teal-colored backing fabric. 

The binding was from some fabric you passed on to me from Sandra in Texas. 

The quilt finishes at 57 X 66 and was donated to Opportunities Unlimited.

The next quilt I have to share with you today is…

one my sister made using scraps that I gave her that had come to me from several different blog followers of yours. 

The gray alternate fabric is from my stash.  My sister is a fairly new quilter with very little stash, so I help her out with patterns and fabric and she helps me out with completed tops for me to quilt, bind, and donate. 
This quilt is 61″ square and was donated to Opportunities Unlimited
.”

This post was a tribute to scrap quilts.  Weren’t they both great quilts.  Oftentimes people don’t like scrappy quilts saying they are busy.  Adding the solid white or the alternate gray blocks makes these scrappy quilts calm and desirable for even those who don’t favor scrappy quilts.  I love scrappy so of course, I loved them both.

Thanks to all who worked on or donated to make these happen.  Your generosity is appreciated!

      If you are referring to the quilt with the gray alternate squares ~ they were cut at 9 1/2″. The scrappy center squares that make up the other block were cut at 5 1/2″, with 2 1/2 X 5 1/2 rectangles in white, and 2 1/2″ corner squares. Easy peasy.

    I like scrappy quilts. I’ll have to keep note of these two. A beautiful job down by all involved. Thanks for sharing.

    Those lovely quilts say that lay out counts for a good 75% of making quilts. I really like both of them. How cool yet warm looking.

    Both of these quilts turned out beautifully, Ronda. Kudos on teaching your sister to quilt (so she can help you with donation projects!) Thanks for sharing the teamwork on the Community Quilt crew, Jo.
