Community Quilts from The Cresco Ladies

The Cresco Ladies outdid themselves. They brought me finished quilts…not just quilt tops. Don’t get me wrong, I love when they bring quilt tops but finished quilts are even more awesome.

Sandra told me if I had any charitable group that needed quilts to use them for fundraisers or for people in need. There were so many…and all so nice.

It just so happens that my church was having a meal fundraiser and being I’m working, I didn’t have a quilt to donate. I ended up taking two tops and donated them there…

this one…

and this one…

The fundraiser was held mid November and I thought these were perfect for Fall.

I really loved this one…Donna is their longarmer and she always does such nice work. I love the motif she picked. It’s just perfect for the quilt.

This is a fun one. I’m guessing it might be one of those 3-yard quilt patterns.

This one uses an oriental girl fabric. It’s a cute design for it.

The Cresco Ladies often make panel quilts. Here are two they made with the same pattern but they don’t look the same at all. One features lighthouses and one minions. I like how the same pattern can look good with such completely different fabrics.

A big shout out of thanks to the Cresco Ladies for coming to my rescue and dropping off quilts at just the perfect moment for me to donate them. They were much appreciated for the silent auction that was held with the fundraiser meal.

I’ve saved the other ones and the next time I learn of somewhere that needs a quilt, I’ll be sure to share with them.
