I’ve gotten in a few charity quilts in lately. I think it’s because people are stuck and home and are tackling more projects.
“I’m sharing a couple more quilts with you today. Both of these quilts will be going to the Ronald McDonald House eventually. Right now, I really don’t want to be going anywhere and I’m pretty sure they don’t want me coming to them either. The first quilt was finished from a top, backing, and binding all sent to me from Ann H. of Winters, California.”
“I liked her idea of making each of the four borders from a different fabric. I often don’t have enough yardage for a nice sized border, but could come up with four scrappy borders of similar color. I’ll have to keep that idea in mind!”
“Also, if you look closely at the next picture, you will see that she inserted scraps of fabric in the binding. She did this in several places all around the quilt. It just makes the binding a bit more interesting.”
“This quilt is about 40″ square.”
“The next quilt was finished from a top and backing sent to me from you, Jo. Originally, it came from“…
“Maryanne C. of Perkasie, PA.”
“It looks to me like she used charm squares plus a white background fabric to make this pretty top. I added the skinny inner border and she had sent enough backing fabric that I could use some of it for the outer border.”
“The binding was leftover from another quilt. This one finishes up at 40 X 55.”
That was fun. I love getting ideas from other quilters. The idea to use different fabrics for the borders and to use leftovers in the binding are both great ideas. Thanks for sharing ladies. A big shout out to all of you donating and of course to Ronda. Your work is so meaningful. Thank you.
