Community Quilts from Ronda

I have quilts to share from Ronda today.  Ronda’s was the first one ever to volunteer finishing quilts.  I love working with Ronda.

I have a few more quilts to share with you today. All three of these were made by my friend, Evie, from Los Angeles, California. Evie took part in a 9-patch block swap and came up with this setting using the dotted teal blocks as alternates. She included the backing and binding also! This quilt is 59 X 67.

Next up is… another top Evie made from a block swap. The swap was for 12 blocks, but she wanted a bigger top so made extra blocks for a quilt that measures 58 X 72. These pinwheels are so bright and cheery! She also sent the backing and binding for this one.

The third top was one Evie made as a mystery quilt, finishing the blocks possibly in 2018, but not putting them together until 2021. This quilt finished up at 64 X 78. She also included the backing and binding for me to use.

I have donated all three of these quilts to Opportunities Unlimited.”

What wonderful quilts!!  Great work on the part of Evie from LA and Ronda.  They came together to make some really awesome quilts.  I’m sure the people at Opportunity Homes will have fun handing these out to those in need.  THANKS for your work ladies.

    Hi Jo! You wrote that you’re pre-writing blogs for when you’re on your retreat. Maybe you could write about blog recommendations? I love your blog and I’m looking for more cross stitcher/quilt blogs to read as I find them inspirational.
    Just a thought!

    Love the quilts, especially the last red one!

    Good Morning Jo, looking at Rhonda and Evie’s quilts. Made me want to sit down at my machine and plunge into another quilt. All 3cquuilts are winners. Number 3 would be my choice if I had to choose just one. Thankyou for sharing Jo, Rhonda and especially Evie.

    Jo, I would like to know the name of the pattern for the second quilt. The one that looks like windmills but isn’t that pattern. I also like the third quilt. Wonder what mystery it was from.

    Beautiful quilts and generous soul to do such beauty and then share with others, completely unknown. Angels unaware…
