Community Quilts from Ronda

Ronda was busy again.  Seriously…I think she’s always busy.  She finished up more quilts that will be donated on to those in need.

Ronda writes”

I have a couple more quilts to share with you today.  First up is a top that you passed on to me from Jan in Wisconsin.”

The backing also came from you, but I don’t know where it came from originally.  The brown and green printed duck fabric matches the top perfectly!  The dark brown binding came from my stash.  This quilt is a nice lap size at 56 X 65.”
I think I bought this backing at the thrift store..I just never got to it so I passed it on.  I often do that.

The second top was sent to me from Karen V. of St. George, Utah.”  
The backing for this one also came from you, Jo, so not sure where it originated either.  The binding was left over fabric from another project.  This is also a good size for a lap quilt at 59 X 68.”
I’m not sure where it originated from either…maybe Connie??  Anyone recognize it?

Both of these tops were nicely constructed and easy to quilt.  As I was getting the second one ready to fold up and deliver, I noticed that where it was laying you could really see the texture that the quilting gave it, so I grabbed the camera for an extra shot!”
Both of these quilts went to Opportunities Unlimited and as I’ve said before, they are very grateful.  A few days after I donated seven quilts to them, I received this very nice thank you card from them.  And since I have so much help, with all of your readers making tops for me to quilt, I thought it only fair that they see the thank you card also, so they know just how much their quilts mean to these people.”

Thanks so much to all of you who donated and help quilts happen.  Ronda does such an amazing job with your quilts.  It’s sweet that these go to a place where they are obviously appreciated.

    Wonderful quilts ladies! It is so great to see the donation quilts especially now with all that’s going on in the world! We are all so blessed that we know how to sew and quilt and create things that people need! Can you even imagine how you would fill all your time if you didn’t???

    I don’t believe that the backing for the second quilt came from me. Both quilts turned out very nice, and your quilting, Ronda is awesome.

    The quilts are lovely, the quilting gorgeous. The love you all show is beyond precious to me and everyone who receives a quilt. Thank you and praying for you all to stay well.

    Jo, I have a question for you. Do cotton and linen play together in a quilt or should I keep them separate. As in two different quilts,?

    Judith. I really don’t have experience with mixing cotton and linen. I personally would keep them separate.
