Community Quilts from Ronda

It’s another community quilt day today.  I always love getting an email from Ronda as I know I’m in for some great eye candy.  That’s exactly what I have for you today.

I have three more quilts to share with you.

Linda in Tucson, Arizona sent 33 blocks she made but didn’t sew together. I used 30 of those blocks for a 5 X 6 setting to make the top. The backing and binding came from Karen S. of Chino, California. This quilt is 61 X 73 and was donated to Opportunities Unlimited.

Linda also sent a big stack of… tumblers all cut out. I cut out a bunch more to add to hers and sewed them together in a light/dark arrangement.

The backing again came from Karen S. of Chino, California. The binding is from my stash.

This quilt is 57 X 74 and was also donated to Opportunities Unlimited.

The last quilt was made by my sister, using scraps that many of your readers sent and leftovers from trimming up the backing fabrics, etc.

The backing came from my stash. Wendy L. of Harpswell, Me. sent a big baggie of bindings already made and coiled up in neat little rolls.

One of those was the perfect color and length for this quilt! This quilt is 60 X 68 and was also donated to Opportunities Unlimited.

I was right, wasn’t I?  It was great eye candy.  I love seeing the quilts come in and I love knowing that more people will receive a quilty hug.  Many thanks to Ronda, her sister, and all the others who donated.

    Beautiful quilts. I really like their simplicity. Thanks to all who had a part in making these something for someone to snuggle with.

      No pattern, Denise. I just saw a picture on Pinterest and used it for inspiration. I had her cut all the neutral squares at 2 1/2″ and the colored rectangles at 2 1/2 X 4 1/2. She sewed three of those together switching the neutral to the right in the center. That made a 6 1/2″ block. Then she just sewed the blocks together into rows, making sure the top and bottom rows of the blocks had the neutral to the left. I hope this helps!
