Ronda was so sweet. The other day I emailed her to see if she wanted to take any of the quilt tops I had that blog readers had sent to me. She was a little hesitant as she feels bad if she doesn’t get them done in what she feels is a timely manner. Then I told her they were baby quilts and she said sure. Ronda is one of the most generous people I know…We are all so lucky to have her in our “on line” life.
“I delivered seven more quilts to Opportunities Unlimited. They were very grateful as most of their residents are wheelchair bound so don’t have the mobility to get up and move around to generate warmth for themselves. I wish everyone who donates a quilt top or fabric could see how happy these quilts make the recipients feel.”
“This first top was made by Denise B. from Tarpon Springs, Florida.”
“The purple floral backing from Gloria S. in Lomita, California, compliments the pretty purple and green fabrics that Denise used in her top.”
“The dark purple binding came from my stash. The quilt is 67″ square. This went to Opportunities Unlimited as well.”
“The second top was made by Evie H. from Los Angeles, California.”
“She also made the pieced back and the binding.”
“This was a GCA Mystery Quilt VI called “Crossroads” from May of 2012. It finished up at 62″ X 78″ and she used fabric from the “Jingle All the Way” line by Nancy Halvorsen.”“Evie said she was still learning the tricks of the trade and getting a feel for color schemes related to quilting when she made the top, but, she did a beautiful job of piecing and the colors are just gorgeous! I have put this one on the hold pile for the Humane Society Annual Quilt Auction to be held this year.”
WOW…Thanks so much to those who donated and to Ronda. She is so generous with her time and talents. I’m so thankful that so many of you are supporting her.
See you back here next week for more community quilts.
